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 ~

~ In Case You Missed It! ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
it's Thursday again ~ this day seems to come around quickly lately...
maybe because I'm counting down the days 
~ till SPRING arrives here at Notforgotten Farm?
~ ❁ ❀ ❁ ~

Just in case you don't visit Facebook or Instagram,
I am posting on the blog here this morning to show you 
this awesome Spool Caddy that Peter made 
~ to hold my spools of embroidery floss/thread! 

❋ ∗ ❋ ∗ ❋ ∗ ❋ 

 I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when he brought this up from his workshop! 
that squeal you heard? yeah, that was me!

Here is it,
shown next to our Floss Winder Box ~ 
I wind all of my floss/threads onto these little wooden spools using this box and winder-gadget that Peter made ~ 

He made my Spool Caddy in a Stained finished, which I love!

❇ ✤ ❇


 The Caddy has a compartment to hold my scissors & such, and it also can hold two of our Accessory Spool Stands nicely!

It will come with spools, more info on that later....


 There are a total of 4 racks, that can hold up to 7 fully loaded spools comfortably,
and our spools hold a full skein of DMC floss each!

 ...the ends of each rack hold even tinier spools, 
that you remove to slide on your loaded spool of thread ~

 This is a perfect tool to use with Punch Needle, Embroidery, 
or any other Needleart involving spools of thread~

I'll be adding these to our Etsy Shop this evening ~
{{ they are 9x9x4 }}

Super Fun! 
Super FUNctional!

 Thank you Peter for always thinking of "our" needlework needs

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
