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

I LOVE to share,

please have fun and enjoy these freebies!!!

you may stitch them for yourself, for gifts or for minimal profit ~
please be kind by mentioning Notforgotten Farm as the actual designer ~

PLEASE remember these are free for you to use, 
but kindly refrain from ever copying and selling the actual chart/graph...
~ that just wouldn't be nice.

Click on the chart you want to stitch, then save it to your computer and print out.
the corresponding symbol/floss list is below each chart for you ~

I love to see your finishes ~ become a member of my Facebook Group:

I have been stitching for over 30 years and now I have fallen in love with your designs! Keep on bringing those designs! Wish I lived closer so I could visit your shop too. And the show on Sept 20 sounds wonderful to visit. Thank you too for the freebies! Maybe someday I'll be able to come to a class or event where I can meet you. Designs look so much better "in person" :)
