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...

~ 1st Annual Summer Stitch In at NFF ~

~ Saturday, June 22nd 2019 ~
 This day will always be held dear in mine & Peter's hearts ~

• it was our 1st ever Stitch In here in our new Studio!
• our friends old and new came out to support us!
• altho warm, the weather cooperated!

It was a busy day for Peter and I ~ we thoroughly enjoyed having so many folks come out to our humble farm and spend the day with us stitching and working on their projects ~

Thanks to Miss Joan for being at the helm of the Front Counter 
~ helping folks check out their goodies ♥

Thanks to Anita & Nancy B for your help with the food ♥
and just a heartfelt Thank you to everyone for pitching in!

Much Thanks to our vendors:
 Robin from Millstone Mercantile ♥♥

And to all of our attendees and shoppers who came out 
and made the day full of fun and friend 'SHEEP'!

here are our photos & short videos of the day spent together ~
I'll not narrate them, but you can see what fun we all had:

{by the end of the day, Amy, Donna Rae & I were just plain silly!}
