~ Short & Sweet ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
another fine day here at the farm....we enjoyed the much-needed rain last night,
a nice steady soaking rain that our parched ground happily absorbed.

Thank you all for the kind words & helpful suggestions regarding my aching back!
it is a bit better today, and I am hoping to get a few slow-paced walks in this afternoon....

since I have been 'couch-ridden', I hooked this below...
The very first one of a series of stair riser designs
 I have been wanting to make for a long time now ~
what do you think?

they will all measure approx 6-1/4" x 24"
and think I'll have a total of 13 when finished with them all.
{although some of you may have more-or-less stairs, depending on the age of your home}

"Toby"© Stair Riser pattern from Notforgotten Farm™

 these will be available as PAPER patterns for you to transfer onto your favorite rug backing...
and will offered in both printed/shipped patterns and PDF/downloadable patterns ~
yay!

any suggestions that you may have for a favorite design you might like to see for this series?
I have 13 sketched up, but always welcome your thoughts as well.

 So now off to the farm shop I go ~ to print, package & ship orders from the weekend.
I'm so happy that you all like my old Notecards so much!!
{ should design a few new ones too?? }

Hoping you all have a wonderful September day my friends!

~ Something Special ~


Good Sunday to you all 
Friends & Folk ~

I've been wanting to do this for a while now and have finally done it!
I have listed the remainder of my printed Folk Art Notecard sets in my Etsy Shop :)
{link is above}

below is a smattering of the 39 different designs available...




These are the notecards that you've seen published in the much-beloved, 
but now defunct Country Home magazine AND are the very same designs that my sweet & talented friend Kris Miller at www.SpruceRidgeStudios.com adapts for rug hookers for me!

I'm offering them in sets of 6 {same design} with matching envelopes ~ 
in LIMITED QUANTITIES
~ so when they're gone they are gone.

~ AND ~

I have also decided to open club memberships again to our
Primitive Punch Needle Club {1st kit model shown below}
for those who have asked to join....

CLICK HERE to JOIN!!!!!

I am happily punching away on design #2 for the club kit, 
which will begin shipping in November ~
I'll share some previews as I get time :)

Hoping you all have a wonderfully creative & Peaceful Sunday!

Hello Friends & Folk

I can't tell you how wonderful our weather has been....well for me anyhow ~
I am a lover of Fall, rain & cloudy-days.
we have had a few in a row now, but today is a sunny one and just loverly too!

 ~:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::~

I wanted to pop in here this morning to let you all know 
that we have resumed our regular Farm Shop hours again of

with the coming months however, 
there will be times when the weather won't be good for a visit ~
 so please keep an eye here and on my FB page for inclement weather closings ;)

AND
since the shop is once again open, that means it's time again for our
Crafty Saturdays!

  Super-informal, 
just bring your needlework in progress and just sit & have fun while creating with me...
I'll proved the snacks & drinks :)



Do you have a group or guild interested in coming for a class?

~ A U T U M N ~


... And then it was.


and I am ready ~

 

I'll once again prepare my old farmhouse
~ for the coming cold months...
 


... and remember the important things. 




I'll savor the colors & scents of this season ~

 

and keep them in my heart
for another year...

~ another turn of the Wheel.


... trying to stop time to enjoy it's swift passing,
before my beloved Autumn is gone again.


and feed my soul with it's beauty and bounty,
and hold close the memories that will be made 
... with my needle & thread ~
and of friendships and family.


it's true.

Happy Autumn, 
and a Blessed Mabon to you!
