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 ~

~ Thursday Morning Musings ~

Hey Howdy Friends & Folk!
a beautiful, sparkler of a day here at the farm...
laundry is hung, windows are open and I am ready to get my day started :)

I finished hooking "Corny Pete" ~ 
and have steamed/blocked him but now need to bind his edges... 
today is a good day for that!

my Lily of the Valley are almost bloomed ~
cannot wait for their scent to fill the herb garden in front of the shop.

 I am working model for a wool applique class 
~ that I will be offering here at the Farm Shop very soon... 
look how bright our classroom is now!

Peter hung these fabulous farm lamps over each table for us when we are working ~
whether at class or just playing hooky on Saturdays lol...

 Speaking of wool applique, 
here is a sneak peek at the project that will be shared with you all
in the upcoming Fall issue of Wool Works Magazine ~

I'm using beautiful rich mellow primitive wools from 
Jan at the Wool'n Gardener  for my project model...
we carry Jan's wool here in our Farm Shop now!

and ~
Peter has made Extension Legs for our Standing Floor Frame©
so it can now tilt if you prefer to hook in that position ~

you can find our Standing Floor Frame© HERE
our new Extension Legs for the frame HERE

 So that's our news for today...
I will be heading outside to work on my projects ~

have a beautifully creative day my sweet friends!

Blessings from the Farm

Corny Pete is fabulous, Lori!! Love the rich autumn colors! Hmmmm...the muted tones on the sneak preview of your wool appliqué project look very late summer, early autumn...makes me want to work on appliqué again!
