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 ~

~ Sunday Morning Musings ~

~ Good Morning Friends & Folk ~ 
Happy Sunday!

a much-needed rain is falling this morning 
~ accompanied by the song of thunder rolling...
a beautiful sound to wake up to!

I wanted to show you the little hooked rug that Joan is working on,
it is a pattern from Ye Country Mercantile and is a horse with flowers ~

she wanted to keep the wools very subdued for a nice old look, 
and here she has hooked in a 'beauty line' 
~ to keep the horse from disappearing into the background

here she is, 
my happy little hooker! 

I'm working away on my 
'Feeding the Bees' cross stitch design... 

 my coreopsis is blooming!
I love this bright & cheerful flower...

Mr. Pinocchio has been enjoying the warm temps and sunshine lately...

but this morning it is raining and here he is getting a bath...

don't know if he loves the rain or hates it, 
but he always stands in it so I am assuming he is being refreshed by it 
{although he always makes a face like that...doesn't he look like Eeyore?}

that black ring-looking thing is a favorite toy of his and Daisy's
... an old tire!!

 Have a beautiful day my friends ~
Blessings from the Farm

Thankful for our recent rains, too, Lori...Joan does indeed look happy as can "bee" (your beehive pattern looking so happy, as well!). Your Coreopsis looks so sunny nestled in your silvery Artemisia (another of my favorite herbs)...enjoy your "Sun-day!"
