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 ~

Settling In ~

Good to be back on Virginia's soil again ~
had a beautiful time in Connecticut,
but now it is back to work for me!!

here is what I'm working on at the moment:

pumpkin-folk stitched on my hand dyed
40ct Old Farmhouse Linen
using one strand of floss over 2 threads of linen
...(which comes out to 20ct)

I'm just making it up as I go, not working from a charted design,
just working from my imagination ~

I'll share more progress as I go….

tiny stitches

Now that I'm back home,
I will be processing all of your orders that came in while I was away ~
and ship them beginning tomorrow (thursday)

I must have at least 3 billion emails to go through, so please bare with me…
I'll get back to you as soon as I possibly can :)

I will be sharing the finish of the July/August/September
Little Stitches Handwork Club project model soon ~
(I am running a little behind with it due to being in CT….)
but I think you will absolutely LOVE it! 
(I do!!)

Please keep our friends Robin & Lee in your thoughts and prayers ~
Robin's dad has passed away…

Keep cool!!

* Blessed be *

So happy you are back home safe and sound, but I was so hoping that you were going to bring some of that nice refreshing New England air with you. What a disappointment! I am so sorry for Robin and Lee's loss. I know they are so sad.
Well, I can see that you are hard at it again doing your favorite thing. Talk with you soon. Blessings, Sandra
