So many projects

My first project of the year. A needle punch by Lori "Notforgotton Farm"

It is a series of four projects, that you hang on an old broom and feedsack.

Since I work so much my goal is to have the entire series finished this year.

I also have some wool applique projects that I received for Christmas that

I am anxious to make.

  2. Wow! That looks so great. Cant wait to see it all finished and hanging up :) I love the hanging laundry out on the line thing. I never did it but mom probably did for a while and my grandma did. I remember she had a kinda of umbrella type thing. Pole in the middle that stuck into a base hole in the ground with the several rows of lines going around it. I wonder if i could google a pic of it. lol
    I wish we lived in mountains or country where the air is clean and fresh and I could hang the close out :)
    Gotta run. I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend. Have a great week.
    Take care, Janet W

  3. How wonderful of Ronnie to get you a Gripper Frame. I have heard they make a world of difference when needle-punching. Do you like using it?

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
