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 us...chasing our kittens, puttering in the herb gardens, or talking to the trees.

~ a Little Witchy-Stitching in July ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
it's Monday again....

hot, hazy & humid.
cicadas are scratching out their Summer songs from high-atop the treetops in our backwoods ~
lazy days are upon us, and we are in need of rain once more for the gardens.

I am staying put, indoors in the AC
as much as I dislike the windows closed and much-prefer fresh air,
this old body of mine cannot tolerate the humidity any longer...

so, what's a girl to do?
well, dream of my beloved October days ~ of course!
I know, 'don't rush it'...but I am an Autumn Girl,
a cold-weather loving soul.

my thoughts turn to pumpkins, crisp air and crunchy leaves...
woodsmoke and wool sweaters and steaming mugs of pine needle tea! 
SO, while holed-up in the blasting artificial cool air in this old farmhouse 
I will once again begin my needlework for the upcoming Autumn-time & All Hallow's Eve.
{it's never too early lol} 

If I didn't have Needlework in my life....I don't know what I would do.
EVERY stitch or loop holds my thoughts & prayers, hopes and dreams...
~ happiness and tears.
{especially with the issues happening in our Country right now...}

  1. Autumn is my favourite time too. But I’m pretty happy it’s the height of garden season too. What is pine needle tea?! Do you make it yourself?!

    1. Hi! yes I do, white pine needles steeped in fresh hot water ~ then strained...sweetened with a bit of honey. High in vitamin C ~

  2. So much temptation!!! I have a couple of these patterns still waiting on my dance card...and spy a few more I want to add.... I also found a pattern of yours (hooked version)...think it was called Hester.... Going to have to re-collect my errant thoughts and figure out where I saw it and see if I can connect the dots LOL. Hot and sticky here too.... ~Robin~
