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 ~

~ A New Rug ~

I sketched out a little design I had in my brain ~
for another sheep, of course...
and named it Tombstone Sheep for the arched shape along the top of the design.

at the moment, she looks a little wide-eyed & bewildered ~
but I'm hoping that will change once I get more of her fleece hooked around her face & ear!

last night we enjoyed the company of friends at our monthly Needle Night ~
always a pleasure to eat, laugh & work together...

hoping to get more progress made on this today, after orders have been packed & shipped :)
tomorrow is calling for rain, so it will be a perfect day to hook ~

Blessings from the Farm
