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 ~

~ Tea & Embroidery Class Photos ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
and a very happy Sunday to you all...

it's a bit cloudy here on the farm today, but it's perfect weather for staying home, cooking up something good for supper and working on my stitching!

Yesterday was our Tea & Embroidery class here in 
the Studio at Notforgotten Farm ~
we welcomed a bunch of friends who came to stitch a teacup-themed embroidery,
then learn all kinds of neat things about teas,
 mix our own herbal teas, taste our teas & laugh {alot}.

my portion of class was of course teaching the embroidery ~
{Miss Joan is working on her rug hooking}

we got right to work tracing our designs onto our linen,
and the needles were flying after that!

here are the photos of their beautiful progress:
Miss Anita

Miss Robin

Miss Sharon

Miss Shari

Miss Jan

Miss Fran

Miss Gail
 aren't their projects just fabulous? 
{I think so too}

as the girls were working on their stitching,
Miss Nancy began her portion of class ~
teaching us all about herbal teas!!


Miss Nancy brought along a small portion 
of her favorite herb-related books for us to peruse ~



she also shared with us her beloved china teapots
and china cups & saucers handed down from her family!


Nancy is so knowledgeable when it comes to herbs, their properties for healing and such ~
it's always a pleasure to hear her talk about her gardens, her tinctures and herbal concoctions...

we had a great time learning about mixing our own herbal teas, 
and then tasting the wonderful 'recipes' that Nancy has made and shared with us ~
so many beautiful jars and bags filled with dried, organic goodness for us!

Robin & Anita are busily learning and mixing 
their own special batches or herbs for their teas in the photo below...


the entire studio was filled with the warmth of friendship and tea ~
and oh how loverly it was to breathe in all of the scents from those herbs!

OH! I forgot to take a photo of our Goodies 
~ but ~ 
we enjoyed:

Cucumber, Dill and Cream Cheese Tea Sammies
Herbed Egg Salad Sammies
Deviled Eggs with Herbs
Bacon, Spinach & Shallot Mini Quiches
Fresh Mozzarella & Sweet Tomato Salad with Fresh Herbs
Olives, Cheese & Pickles Crudites
Lemon Cream Cheese Bars
Lemon/Lavender Shortbread Cookies 
Fresh Mandarin Oranges
{{ and of course Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Eggs!! }}


and since Miss Joan was working on her rug hooking ~ 
here is her progress on her 'Magdelena's Menagerie' by Kathy Clark:
love that dog!!

 A special day filled with Goodness of all kinds ~
wishing you could have all been here with us!

Look for Miss Nancy to return this Spring 
with another class on herb-related wonderful-ness!!
