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 ~

Rain, Rain…...

Happy Rainy Tuesday folks ~

Good day to stay in and hook, punch, stitch, read….eat ;)

I was watching this fellow all morning from my sewing room window -
he has been stealing dog kibbles from Lazy's dish
(since Lazy doesn't 'do' rain, he's been sleeping in the barn, letting his food get all wet)
all-the-better for Mr. Corvid, no?

click here to learn more about him…

love his little legs :<

 I'm finishing up a punched design for the Winter issue of 
can't show you too much...

little more to go ~

and I've been drooling over these in between projects ~
these books make me want to hook EVERYTHING in them.

look for them on Amazon

I have to get my tush in gear and finish ALL of the things I want to offer at our 
Spring Open House on May 3rd
(I simply cannot believe it is April 15th and I have just over 2 weeks to get ready)

I'm working on all-kinds of things,
little book necklaces, tiny pincushion boxes, punched pins….
some folky dolls, a couple of hooked items and of course, some more

I'll keep you posted, you betcha.

I wanted to Thank the members of the Facebook Group: Prim Stitchers Society
for joining my Little Stitches Handwork Club!!

Thanks to Nan Lewis 
….for the shout-out on there :)

Have a most beautiful, albeit soggy evening…

* Blessed be *

I'm looking forward to that issue but not the weather. But will be looking forward to your new design.

You sure do manage to capture great pictures of magnificent critters both tame and wild. I enjoy them all.

I didn't know all those birds came from the corvid genus. I'm always learning something new here. Thanks! Love the birdies.
There is a murder of crows that live in a pine woods behind my house. They sure do chatter a lot.
Looking forward to my new PQ&P book. I think I spy a holly leaf.

Good morning Lori,
We are having those kinds of days here too, but nothing as fun to look at as your little Mr. Corvid.
I have a tendency to do my 'show' work on a rush schedule - I think I do my best work under pressure and a deadline.
I'm so anxious to get working on those punch needle designs I purchases! Thank You.
Blessings and HAPPY EASTER.
