Notforgotten Farm by Lori From Notforgotten Farm - 2d ago

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
and a very happy sunny & bright Sunday to you all ~

Yesterday was our Woolen Lavender Class 
~ here in the Studio at Notforgotten Farm...

we only had one cancellation { missed you Christina!}
... but it was a fun filled day for sure ~

Here is "Table #1" showing off their smiles and projects-in-progress:
clockwise from bottom left: Janice, Joan Sharon G., Shari, Nancy B. & Anita



and here is "Table #2"
clockwise from bottom left: Wanda, Amy,  Lynn, Sharon S. & Pat


...with glue guns heated up and at-the-ready,
everyone dived right in to the making of their Woolen Lavender spires ~ 


sweet friend Amy brought her adorable Mom, Lynn 
{ although she 'says' she's not a 'crafty' person ~ }
she could have fooled us all with the beautiful and unique Lavender she created!


with lots of snipping, twisting and turning ~
each student worked on their Lavender spires...

I am Blessed to have so many friends that I love dearly
and who love to laugh and create as much as I do ~





busy little honey-bees they are!

 All of our hard work and hearty laughter made for even heartier appetites...
Peter made us all delish Chicken Salad Sammies and the girls brought
along fruit & dip, cheese/crackers, veggies with dip, deviled eggs...


and of course we had Sweet Treats too:
Joan made us a refreshing Ambrosia 
and Nancy B. baked us Rose Geranium  Shortcakes!


Those who visit us here on a regular basis, 
will get to know my hubby's sense of humor...
he loves these Ladies just as much as I do ~ and is always willing to lend advice
{whether we want or ask for it lol} or a helping hand.

He told the girls there will be 'Judging' of their work after class...
and headed to Miss Janice {who is our newest Tribe-member} ~
Peter loves to chide these girls, and they sure know how to handle him right back!

I think the photos below show just how 
Janice is taking everything Peter is saying into 'consideration' 
... before letting him know HER thoughts! LOL


and here are a few snaps of the finished class projects:



Didn't they do a great job?

I So enjoyed this class...
as I enjoy every class and gathering together of my friends ~

Love you muchly, all of you!

Notforgotten Farm by Lori From Notforgotten Farm - 3w ago

 Hello Friends & Folk!
happy Saturday evening to you all ~
what a beautiful day we had weather-wise! 
high & dry, sunshiney and cool temps with a slight breeze...
perfect in my book!

Today was our hand stitched Doll Quilt class here in the Studio at Notforgotten Farm ~
{{ we have so much fun at our classes, I'm surprised we get anything accomplished! }}

Yesterday, in preparation for the class today,
Joan, Robin M. & I cut hundreds of 4-1/2 squares 
from some of my beautiful cotton quilting fabrics 
~ that I have been hoarding saving for such a class...

I wanted my students to be able to choose their own color-story for their own quilt ~
and, to my surprise ~ there wasn't one tussle over the fabric!
{I had nightmares about not having enough of 'this' or 'that' fabric 
and having to break up a cat-fight or two!}

I love the old looking fabrics in antique quilts..
so I lean towards the wonderful reproduction s that are available for quilters today ~
and try to keep the prints simple and charmingly humble...



while we stitched, 
we had the opportunity to see up close and personal 
the wonderful collections of Miss Joan, and Miss Barbara who were kind enough to bring theirs along for show & tell...oh my stars and garters!!


Here is Miss Joan's collection ~
 


I have to add that I inadvertently hung the green-bordered quilt on the far right UPSIDE DOWN!

and here is Miss Barbara's collection~
 

me, myself and I personally ~ 
was/am infatuated by this teeny tiny hand stitched doll quilt below!!!!
I mean, c'mon...just LOOK at it!
the minute squares, the fabrics, the border, the stitching, the wonkiness, the SIZE!
 

... and here is the back of said treasure ~ 
simple plain muslin but you can see those little hand stitches....in brown thread no less!
I tried to steal confiscate borrow this little quilt from Miss Barbara by stuffing it onto my bra, which is off limits to EVERYone ~ but she said no-go.
so then I lied and told her I LICKED it and that now it just HAD to be mine, but again...nope.
*sigh* 
it's ok, 
I know that Miss Barbara loves it so very much 
~ and will take thee best care of it {for me} lol


ok, on to the ladies quilts!!!!

here is Miss Robin H's ~
she chose mustards and browns and reds....
 

Miss Anita chose blues, cheddars and browns...
 

Miss Pat decided on a beautiful mix of subdued hues, with that pop of blue!
 

Miss Dawn helped us today by showing us how she miters corners ~ 
her colors are happy & fun!


 Miss Barbara, {owner of 'my' little quilt, lol}
chose green, blues and browns...


Miss Joan stitched our class model for us, 
in a variety of blues with an added triangle patch!


Miss Helena worked her little quilt in vibrant reds & blues...then decided to use a
super fun & bright yellow backing! 
here she is, embellishing her project with hand embroidered flowers....


Miss Shari chose reds and cheddars/golds for her little quilt... 
so pretty!!!


and, last but certainly not least ~
Miss Janice chose a sweet palette of colors that are perfect for a antique-inspired little quilt...

Miss Janice, 
thank you for coming today 
& we look forward to having you with us more and more!
♥️


 the little quilt below, 
was one I stitched a while back and gave to Miss Joan ~
I tried to make a small Flying Geese design, but in my usual wonky-way, screwed it up 
stitched patched backwards...
but it is that humble-ness that we love, isn't it? 
~ whether old or newly created.


Miss Shari & Mr. Steve
 always bring their fur-baby, "Cassie" with them to class...
such a sweet little hound dog she is...all tuckered out in her bed! 
Bless her little heart ~
 

OH! am I tired ~ but my heart is full once-again...
full of friendship and love ~ laughter and good food! {thank you everyone!}
 
 and as I wrote on the Studio chalboard today...
A Friend, like an Old Quilt ~
is both a treasure and a comfort.

Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
