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 our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens or talking to the trees.
and 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 ~
I love seeing the past through the eye of my needle...

~ Thursday Morning Musings ~

Good Soggy Morning Everyone!
'tis that time of the year when the mushrooms and dandelions grow ~

as well as other weeds that I love ~ 
like wild yarrow:

our American Beauty roses love this warm, wet weather too!

but the dampness is not good for having a fire outdoors...

 and it's a good thing too,
as we have a friend visiting!


Amidst the rains,

We are stitching and preparing for the upcoming 
PSS Retreat and Merchant Mall at the end of this month... 
a few new designs will be released at the retreat 
and we will have our wood products for the needleworker too!

Saturday is our Strawberry Sewing Box class here in the Farm Shop and we still have a few openings left if you're interested in coming in to take the class...let me know by email/pm or call :)

Here is a video of Peter in his woodshop ~
doing what he loves to do!

 Hoping you all have a loverly day spent with those who love you most....

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori

Love the little mushroom and your lizard friend...and the tiny red spider on that "globe" of dandelion seeds is a beautiful photo, Lori~
White yarrow and roses, so lovely, wild and cultivated.

I will be stitching in white, too, as soon as my dyed linen arrives!
Blessings to you and Peter!
