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 ~

~ Wednesday Musings ~

Only a couple more sleeps until we leave for the

if you think we are excited to be there, ... then you are wrong.
... we are SUPER excited!
{ha! gotcha!!}

today & tomorrow I will be working on last minute finishing, 
pattern tweaking and going over lists.
then the packing of the van begins.
{insert dramatic music here X}

I woke up early and headed straight to my happy place;
my comfy little stitching chair in my sewing room ~ 
(( which is just a few shuffles away from our bedroom, 
~ so I can manage that when half-asleep. ))

I'm still working on my Punch Needle Folk© dolls....
Remember them?
I first introduced Claudia Cluck {on your right} on January 17th 2018
and then Roberta Abbott on February 5th 2018 ~ respectively.

aren't they the sweetest of friends?
 and Miss Katrina Whiskertwitch is on my frame and just about finished...
I can't wait till you meet her ;)

there are a bunch of my Punch Needle Folk© 
just waiting in the wings to be created....
they are so much fun to bring to life and I love to share them with you all! 

I love when the farmhouse is quiet and sunny in the wee morning light ~
when all I can hear is the sound of our cuckoo-clock ticking, and the occasional crow of an early-rising rooster out in the farmyard...

doesn't my basket of Waverly Wool yarn look beautiful
 in the slant of sunshine coming through the old lace curtains?

~ so many possibilities in there.

 Have a most-beautiful and creative Wednesday my sweet friends!
as always, I thank you for your visits here, and your kind words.

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori

I love your little friends. They are so adorable and would look great in so many settings. How is it that Iggy doesn't bother your basket of wool? My Polly would be in there making some kind of mess! *hahaha* Have a great day and upcoming safe travels.
