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 kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...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 ~

Kansas City Star….

"Summer at Notforgotten Farm"

By Lori Brechlin

9 projects inspired by those hot, lazy summer days we love!!

I had so much fun designing projects for this book ~ during the COLD days of this past Winter!
I just kept dreaming about how much I love to work & stitch on the porch…
listening to the birds singing and the bees humming ~
...and smelling our fresh herbs growing in the garden.

This book will be shipping early June ~
...just in time for your Summer Stitching!

If you'd like to preorder,

Have a wonderfully creative day my friends!

* Blessed be *
