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 ~

NEW Pattern ~ "My Needle is Sharp…"

New pattern is ready ~
"My Needle is Sharp…"
primitive sewing pillow pattern from ©Notforgotten Farm

"My Needle is Sharp and my Hands Swift…"
stitched onto my hand dyed Cupboard Cloth (osnaburg)
which is approx. a 32ct (when stitched 1 over 2)

I finished this stitch into a sewing pillow... 
where I can place my pins, needles and threads (on the attached thread rings)
and wrap my little scissors onto it w/ ribbon ~

neat & tidy

I finished the back of mine w/ a repro cotton fabric 
...and patched it with a scrap of pumpkin-hued velvet
from Blackberry Primitives

my sewing pillow is filled with our Organic Sawdust

the paper pattern for this project is available in my Etsy shop
as well as the small scissors shown, and the Organic Sawdust :)

many thanks my friends &...

* Blessed be *
