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 ~

~ Chickens ~

what is my obsession with these little fuzz-butts lately?
I don't know...but I shouldn't say lately ~
I have always loved chickens....
 we have raised many feathered-friends both here in VA
and in CT as well ~

I love to incorporate them into my needlework and folk art too!

these were embroidered onto some old linen I have,
I used beautiful Valdani 3 ply cotton floss {all 3 strands}.

look at those tiny peeps and daffodils ~

I am keeping it in the small hoop as it is ~
{{ I whitewashed the hoop. }} 

they are showing up in my sketchpads 
... and coming alive in my watercolors too ~

Have a beautiful & peace-full
Palm Sunday my friends ~
Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
