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 ~

~ 30 Years & Counting ~

I guess you could say that I qualify...
although I don't consider myself as being OLD at 55 yrs.,
I would agree with the fact that having been a hooker for 30+ years ~
....oh well I am an Old Hooker then!

just finished another little Hooker's Pocket model...
and I think this one is my favorite so far ~
{I have so many that I want to make!}

again, this one has been Rug Punched ~
using my Oxford #14 and 3ply wool tapestry yarn in some of my favorite colors.

it is lined with cotton fabrics ~ 
... makes it strong to hold your hooks/scissors & such.

I added blanket stitch to the edges & bottom 
with DMC #3 perle cotton in 611 {drab brown}

and a strap made from 7/8" cotton twill tape from Joann's stores.

I will wear this with Hooker Pride at the shows & hook-ins...
 Pattern will be available in my Etsy Shop next week, 
{along with Froggy!!}

*thanks for all the kind remarks about Froggy! ~ you all crack me up!*

Blessings from the Farm
