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 ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
Happy Friday to you all ~

just a short post to show you my finished model 
for my soon-to-be-released cross stitch pattern,

"Feeding the Bees" 

Linen used: 32ct Parchment from Weeks Dye Works
Thread Used: DMC ~ 2 strands of floss over 2 threads of linen
Stitch Count: 163w x 119h

Peter will be making a frame that I designed for this specific pattern ~
and I'll be releasing this new pattern at the upcoming
PSS Retreat & Merchant Mall

it will be available to the public in June via our Etsy shop :)

Now I am off to stitch more on a few other new items

Blessings from the Farm
