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...

~ Punching Away into Autumn! ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
... Happy Wednesday to you all!!...

I have been punch-happy lately.
Working on new and old projects ~ some that have been 'away' for a while 
and brought back out for me to finish, like this black jack that I started who-knows-when ago:

this will be finished off as a pocket, pattern available soon...
here is the back or working-side ~

and the front loop-side ~

here are the two Punch Needle Fusion finishes that I have recently shown also:

...there is a slew of patterns waiting to be punched 
that I have gleaned from my sketchbooks to:

Don't forget that any of my punch needle designs
 can be done using the Punch Needle Fusion Technique or punched traditionally {entire background}
AND also these designs are great for Embroidery too!

Unfamiliar with my Punch Needle Fusion technique??
visit my Youtube Channel ~

I would love to see your finished projects from my designs ~
 here are my groups on Facebook I have created, where you can join/share your work: 

 Enjoy your day my friends, stay cool, keep busy & Bee Happy!

Blessings from the Farm
