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 Wee Bit Punchy ~

Hello Friends & Folk!
So with all of the needle-punching going on here,
I have decided that I  must rug punch...or, punch a rug.

I have my Oxford #10 & #14 rug punch needles
{my very favorite sizes, small for detail & larger for backgrounds}

I have also {of course} been perusing auction sites and Pinterest
for inspiration as to what to draw up...

I'm thinking a floral/geometric will be my choice!

I will be using both wool strips and heavy wool yarns for the rug, 
and will show you my progress as I go ~ 
{first I have to draw it up!}
here are a few snaps of some I have found on-line 
~ that may whet your appetite to begin a punched rug too:

Simple and Bold

ok, not so 'floral-y', but I love him...

those hearts & stripes!

I love everything about this one ~

Just plain Gorgeous & I love the Urn & Willow!

a very Happy rug indeed ~ :)

the background on this one....

Soft, soft soft....

a great Scrappy rug!


Our little shop here at the Farm will be OPEN TODAY 10:00 - 4:00
despite the torrential rain predicted today! 

if you're in the neighborhood stop in and warm up by the woodstove ~
bring your work in progress and come create with me ~
I'll be working on my Tombstone Sheep rug today! {already in progress} 

Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
