~ Hickety Pickety ~ and Old Farmhouse Linen ~

 Hello Friends & Folk!
and a happy rainy Monday, early evening to you all ~

oh the temps have been mild ~ 
and our gardens are now sharing their new shoots & sprouts...rhubarb, parsely & mint...
garlic chives and oregano too!

the barn and farmyard is bustling with new life too...
 Hens are roosting on their nests ~ waiting patiently for tiny hatchlings ~
and I can't wait for little fluffy chicks to come once again.

I am in a chicken mood!
...most of you have seen my progress of Hickety Pickety...

Hickety Pickety
my Black Hen...
she lays eggs ~ for Gentlemen....

I love this old nursery rhyme 
and thought it would be a good excuse to stitch a whopper of a hen...
one who lays dozens of fresh eggs at a time no less!
 
 

I am happy to say that you may now purchase my sweet
Hickety Pickety cross stitch pattern ~ as either:
PDF/Instant Download -click HERE
or
PAPER/Mailed pattern -click HERE

I stitched this onto my hand dyed 40ct Old Farmhouse stained linen from Notforgotten Farm™
and love how it came out ~


Also ~
I have found a new source for my base linen
and am happy to say that I am offering my
 Hand Dyed Linen once again ~ 
in LIMITED QUANTITY & PRE ORDER ONLY

**ALL of my Hand Dyed/Stained linens are done one at a time by me ~ 
so expect that each piece of linen will be different from one another.
no two are EVER alike, but rest assured that...
... you will be receiving a piece of linen with stains & colors that I prefer to stitch on ♥️

so here is an example of my "Old Farmhouse" hand dyed linen from Notforgotten Farm™
{below} offered to you in 28ct, 30ct, 32ct, 40ct  ~  with 36ct coming soon!!


and
 here is an example of my "Ironstone" hand dyed linen from Notforgotten Farm™
{below} in 30ct ~ { I am hoping to add higher counts in this beautiful linen soon as well ~ }


and I cannot stress this enough my friends...

KINDLY NOTE ~ 
ALL LINEN PRE-ORDERS IN MY ETSY SHOP 
WILL SHIP BETWEEN 1 & 2 WEEKS FROM ORDER PLACED,
 EVEN IF ORDERED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS FROM OUR ETSY SHOP ~
WHY? WELL, I AM ONE PERSON ~ DYEING AND STAINING ALL OF THIS LINEN 
{FOR  MYSELF and for YOU}      ONE PIECE AT A TIME...
PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE 
IF YOU CAN'T WAIT THE 1 - 2 WEEK SHIPPING TIME FOR MY LINENS ~ 
----> THANK YOU & I LOVE YOU ALL <--- br="">



and with all of that, I will leave you to go fix supper for my beloved and myself ~
a nice batch of fish, with red potatoes and roasted cauliflower...

happy stitching, everyone!

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
