~ H O M E ~

~ Home & Happy ~
{{{ yep ~ that's me! }}}

I arrived in Virginia last night around suppertime ~
 my sweet hubby had our humble farmhouse neat & tidy for me, 
… with my favorite candles lit and he even did the laundry!
ahhhh ~ crisp clean line-dried cotton sheets ~

Peter makes thee best scrambled-eggs too, so he whipped us up a batch for supper too.
~ simple is best ~
ox I love you Peter xo

Now that I've had a chance to unpack and recoup from the 8 hour drive south
{through blinding rain over the Tappan Zee Bridge yesterday morning, thankyouverymuch}
I have lots of things to tell you!!

Our Rug Hooks Are READY!
woohoooooo ;)

…… yum …...

aren't they gorgeous?
they come in 5 different colors ~
Barn Red, Yellow Ochre, Sage Green, Oyster White & Robin's Egg Blue

they come in 3 different styled handles:
Pencil, Club or Ergo

Most of the ones we have ready
 have those AWESOME black steel "Magnetic" hooks!
they will stick to your large heavy-duty magnet 
used on your rug hooking frame to hold your scissors/hook…
how handy-dandy is that?
{{we have a couple of brass hooks available too}}

Look for them to be sold individually in our ETSY SHOP this evening!!!

Here is the finished-finished model for the Jan/Feb/March 2016
Little Stitches Handwork Club {LSHC} !!!

'Hand & Heart' Hanging Pinkeep
 ©Notforgotten Farm

 I stuffed it with Peter's organic sawdust for a nice heavy feel…
then added a black silk ribbon to hang it from.

I really love how this turned out ~ the motif is simple enough and reminds us to
remember our friends & those we love {notice the gold wedding band}
I decided to add a patch on mine using the same fabric {{that will come with the member's kits}}
… and lots of humble hand-stitches holding the patch on ~

Kits will be 

If you would like to join our Exclusive club
or renew your membership ~

that's my news for today ~
I'll be back here tomorrow with more news!

~ Blessings from the Farm ~

I have a love hate with the Tappan Zee. Hate driving over it, love that it is the gateway to my favorite places...New England.

Love the hooks.

What a brave gal! Taking the Tappan Zee in good weather isn't fun and I know it is even less fun in the blinding rain. Glad you got home safely!
