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...

~ Woolen Lavender Class Photos ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
and a very happy sunny & bright Sunday to you all ~

Yesterday was our Woolen Lavender Class 
~ here in the Studio at Notforgotten Farm...

we only had one cancellation { missed you Christina!}
... but it was a fun filled day for sure ~

Here is "Table #1" showing off their smiles and projects-in-progress:
clockwise from bottom left: Janice, Joan Sharon G., Shari, Nancy B. & Anita

and here is "Table #2"
clockwise from bottom left: Wanda, Amy,  Lynn, Sharon S. & Pat

...with glue guns heated up and at-the-ready,
everyone dived right in to the making of their Woolen Lavender spires ~ 

sweet friend Amy brought her adorable Mom, Lynn 
{ although she 'says' she's not a 'crafty' person ~ }
she could have fooled us all with the beautiful and unique Lavender she created!

with lots of snipping, twisting and turning ~
each student worked on their Lavender spires...

I am Blessed to have so many friends that I love dearly
and who love to laugh and create as much as I do ~

busy little honey-bees they are!

 All of our hard work and hearty laughter made for even heartier appetites...
Peter made us all delish Chicken Salad Sammies and the girls brought
along fruit & dip, cheese/crackers, veggies with dip, deviled eggs...

and of course we had Sweet Treats too:
Joan made us a refreshing Ambrosia 
and Nancy B. baked us Rose Geranium  Shortcakes!

Those who visit us here on a regular basis, 
will get to know my hubby's sense of humor...
he loves these Ladies just as much as I do ~ and is always willing to lend advice
{whether we want or ask for it lol} or a helping hand.

He told the girls there will be 'Judging' of their work after class...
and headed to Miss Janice {who is our newest Tribe-member} ~
Peter loves to chide these girls, and they sure know how to handle him right back!

I think the photos below show just how 
Janice is taking everything Peter is saying into 'consideration' 
... before letting him know HER thoughts! LOL

and here are a few snaps of the finished class projects:

Didn't they do a great job?

I So enjoyed this class...
as I enjoy every class and gathering together of my friends ~

Love you muchly, all of you!
Blessings from the Farm
