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 us...chasing our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens, or talking to the trees.

Our Needlework Shop & Studio

~ Calico Hearts ~

~ Good Morning Friends & Folk ~ 
and a happy Tuesday to you all!

all of our Christmas/Yuletide decorations 
are now tucked into their boxes ~ to slumber for another year...

I love to decorate for the seasons and holidays, 
although not as heavily as we once did when Hannah was younger and still living at home.

 St.Valentines' Day is a quiet celebration for us ~
usually spent at home, with a comfort-food dinner such as stuffed peppers
 and a sweet-treat for dessert...
{{ maybe a couple dozen heart-shaped Linzer tarts? }}
usually followed by a tear-jerker or romantic comedy while snuggled together on the sofa.
{ "together" means: Peter & I, Iggy and Roxy, with Pepper at our feet }

I also enjoy creating new things for this holiday ~ 
small simply-made and well, 
... heartfelt things.

I'm using scraps from my basket, cotton calicoes
in shades of brown, cream blue & red.

stitched around the edges using linen thread ~
neat & tidy, plain & simple.

they will become small ornaments with wire hangers...
to be sold here at the Farm Shop ~

How do you & your loved ones celebrate St. Valentine's Day?

the weather-folk are predicting a few flakes for this weekend, 
and although I long for Spring...
some clean fresh snow and colder temps are needed
~ to get rid of all the bad germs 'out there'.

Wishing you all a beautiful day filled with love & creativity 
❤ ♥ ❤
Blessings from the Farm
