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 ~

~ Moving Along ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
and a happy overcast-but-turning-warmer Tuesday to you all!

I am in a ham & peanut butter cup stupor...
just cannot resist the food goodness of the holiday!

I have been making progress on Wool Witch though,
and have finished the oatmeal background behind witch & her sheep
and have begun filling in the border now;

I added a dimensional braid for her hair too 

I may shorten that braid, but for now it stays ~

how do you like the border?
 I'm pulling the colors of the rug out to the border 
and hooking it in random strips ~

a funny thing is,
 when I went to snap a photo of the rug for my Instagram page last night,
I realized that my border matches our rugs here in the keeping room!

Hoping to finish this today,
 and then get to work on a class model that I'll be teaching in October!
 I am excited to share that with you all, so stay tuned!

Have a beautiful day my friends,
create something beautiful with your hands & heart ~
take a walk  in the fresh air ~ kind to yourself and others.

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
