~ Short & Sweet ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
another fine day here at the farm....we enjoyed the much-needed rain last night,
a nice steady soaking rain that our parched ground happily absorbed.

Thank you all for the kind words & helpful suggestions regarding my aching back!
it is a bit better today, and I am hoping to get a few slow-paced walks in this afternoon....

since I have been 'couch-ridden', I hooked this below...
The very first one of a series of stair riser designs
 I have been wanting to make for a long time now ~
what do you think?

they will all measure approx 6-1/4" x 24"
and think I'll have a total of 13 when finished with them all.
{although some of you may have more-or-less stairs, depending on the age of your home}

"Toby"© Stair Riser pattern from Notforgotten Farm™

 these will be available as PAPER patterns for you to transfer onto your favorite rug backing...
and will offered in both printed/shipped patterns and PDF/downloadable patterns ~

any suggestions that you may have for a favorite design you might like to see for this series?
I have 13 sketched up, but always welcome your thoughts as well.

 So now off to the farm shop I go ~ to print, package & ship orders from the weekend.
I'm so happy that you all like my old Notecards so much!!
{ should design a few new ones too?? }

Hoping you all have a wonderful September day my friends!
~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Lori! I don't do Facebook…I didn't know about your back! So sorry to hear it! Since I've been working out with weights, as well as doing yoga and walking, my back problems are virtually gone. I hope you recuperate quickly, as I know how disabling it can be. Your whale is darling! I love nautical designs. We live in a one-story house, so stair rugs don't really apply to me… :(
Autumn has finally arrived! We're cool and sunny today…great for a walk. Take care, Dear.

Having a bad back myself and stairs that are steep as they used to go to the attic in my old house I empathize.
Your work is beautiful and will look so nice on the stairs.
Take care of yourself.
