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...

Our Needlework Shop & Studio
is located here at our farm:

Sweet Fancy Moses!!! I knew this shop was in Alexandria and wanted to visit it on our recent trip to D.C. I also knew if I went in...I'd be in there for hours. As is the case so often on trips, there just wasn't enough time to do everything. It looks like such a wonderful place! I'm so glad you shared your visit with us. Love the video! You and Joan are a terrific team! Any needle shops in Charlottesville? Heading that way next year...the good Lord willing and the creek don't my grandmother use to say.
Have a great day and thanks for this fun post!

Love the video, Lori. Please tell Miss Joan I admire all her rings! She has the most unique bold rings and I love them; it’s the first thing I look for

Oh heavens....What a shop!!! Beautiful outside and AMAZING inside!! I’d be playing for hours on end. I love, love, love the video....You’re too cute... As much as I have been anticipating your Christmas piece (Shadows of Christmas/Yuletide), I am now even more excited for the Halloween version.... (Yeah, I love Halloween at least as much as you LOL).... That linen is just yummy!!! I enjoyed the “show and tell” as well... that little crazy mat appliqué is just gorgeous! ~Robin~
