~ Chicken Stitches! ~

 I am over the moon excited about hosting another one of my sweet & talented friends' classes here at our Farm Shop ~

the imitable Becky Noland from Lucy Beam
will be teaching a finishing class for this!!!

"Queen Chicky" 

I mean seriously, who else BUT Becky could come up with this idea? 
 

class participants will be Pre-stitching an insert of this funky chicken below,
to set inside your milk glass hen ~
which is included in the class/kit!


AND they will also be stitching the little speckled egg scissors fob too!


Becky is also including the sweet little Putford scissors with the kit....
 


at the moment, we have 6 students confirmed
 if you have signed up and don't see your name here EMAIL ME asap!:
Confirmed Students for June 10th class ~
Heather Stevens
Robin Muddiman
Sue Walker
Blaine Harkins
Augusta Van Nassau 
Chris Cassidy

There are only FOUR spots left for this class, so if you want to spend a day at Notforgotten Farm with a bunch of crazy stitchers, then email me now to sign up :)

the cost of the class is $90.00 and will include:
Glass Hen
Putford Scissors
Students will be mailed their kit for Pre-stitching, and they have their choice of Linen or Aida cloth.
 The fabric used in the model is 32ct. "Ancient" Linen by Picture This Plus
OR

In Other News:

here is a peek of my other new cross stitch design,
"So Inclined"
the verse reads:
"I would be so inclined to Stitch more ~ if it were not for Sleep" 
 



 my beautiful model was stitched by the talented hands of sweet friend Heather Stevens ~
linen used: 32ct Old Farmhouse from Notforgotten Farm
threads used: DMC
 


 I need to 'finish' the models now, 
and then I will show share them with you in their full glory
;)

I am off to do my chores, 
check on the puppies {we lost one sweet babe and are down to 6}
and then settle in to stitch/punch/hook.

Hoping you all enjoy a beautiful creative day!

Blessings from the Farm

Love this project! My mother collected those milk glass chickens. Whenever I see one I am at once transported back to my childhood. Sounds like a wonderful class!

Oh how I wish I were close enough to take a class at the farm... any class!! But this one looks like all kinds of whimsical fun! Such a cleverly unique idea. Sorry 'bout the pup....it's nature, but it still sure hurts.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
