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 Celebration ~

My beloved 
Out of Hand Rug Hookers group  
on Facebook ~ has reached it's milestone 5,000 member mark!!

I would like to express my thanks to the members for their support ~
this group is very active in sharing their love of rug hooking/rug punching...
we have a strong foundation built on not only our love of wool,
but it is a place to visit to learn, share and grow in a like-minded, on-line community.

Where we share our rugs & projects...the stories behind them and their inspiration.
we share our lives and loves, and sometimes dislikes too!
we care about the rug hooking community and help to keep the art of rug hooking
 alive and well within it's cyber-walls ~
Thank you also to my fellow-admin., 
Lisanne Miller who shares with us new & wonderful things almost daily,
and my ever-helpful and talented moderator, Sandi Lucero for putting up with me!
