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...

A Bit of Autumn Magic ~

Some of you may remember my character,
Pumpkin Tyme

my guy that I painted in watercolors graced my original notecards a few years back,
then was beautifully adapted into a design for Rug Hooking,
much to my (and many other hookers' ) Kris at .

He has now been magically transformed into Cloth by the blessedly-talented hands of
Angela Hillstrom of Old Raggs USA ~

Angela captured his wit & charm...
his sedate smile and beady eyes...

she gave him just the perfect choice of old fabrics for clothing
...and I see that he approves.

I love his long lankiness and breeches...
his tiny feet tickle me!!

I believe he is available for adoption ~

You may see more pictures of him on Angela's website,

Thank You Angela,

for bringing Pumpkin Tyme to life!!
(you'll want to visit Angela & Bobbette's beautiful blog too,

blessings from the farm,
