Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...chasing our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens or talking to the trees.
and I collect old & odd things.

I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh ~
I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~
I love seeing the past through the eye of my needle...

Our Needlework Shop & Studio
is located here at our farm:

{ Happy Saturday! }

...well, we've been celebrating so much lately,
why not celebrate Saturday?


Hannah & I are in the shop, printing, folding, bagging,
boxing orders that came in over the last few days...
(all orders will be shipped out on monday...thanks so much!)

I wanted to show you the finished rug that I was working on...
remember it?

it will hang here in the shop,
then accompany me on my show dates to act as my 'sign'...
and speaking of shows, here's another one that you won't want to miss:
"Winter in the Valley Antiques"
a brand new show located in Fishersville VA!!!
I've been asked to demonstrate my
primitive rug hooking and needle punching so stop by and see me!

and here's another doll that will be up for auction in just alittle bit:

her name is Amelia, she is paper-clay over cloth and looks like carved wood...
she is a beauty, no?
(my thanks to all of the watchers and bidders on my
Mother Rabbit doll, and for all of the loverly comments about her!)

Have a wonderful Saturday...and stay warm, it's COLD out there!!
Plenty & Grace be yours,
