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 trees...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 love where I am & who I'm with
~ I am a good witch...

Our little needlework shop & studio
is located at
