~ September 1st Offering ~

…I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as Autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.
So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorn, 10th October 1842

Hello Friends & Folk
and Happy September to you!
after being cooped up in the farmhouse all Summer,
 finally knowing that the cooler, crisper weather will be here soon ~
… makes me want to stay outside as Mr. Hawthorn describes above.

Our gardens are now turning
and we have small pumpkins peeking out from under every leave it seems!

taking my cue from them,
 I have been creating my own type of pumpkin with my punch needle and thread.


"Lavender Pumpkin Witch"  pin tuffet
an original design from Notforgotten Farm™

Working with my DMC & Valdani threads,
I designed this little sewing room helper for you!

she wears a smile, knowing that she will be a welcomed companion to your stitching ~
her little gleaming eyes are antique German blown glass…
she holds a sprig of dried lavender from our garden in her tiny hands too :)

I always use top quality quilters' cotton fabrics when I work,
and these are some of my very favorite ones ~
 there are a total of 7 different reproduction Civil War era prints in they little piece.

both the little witch & the tuffet are firmly stuffed
with wool & cotton fabric scraps from my sewing room.

hand stitched & treadle-machine stitched here by me in our old farmhouse
using my beloved Pfaff model #31 ca. 1890 sewing machine ~

I've included one of my printed labels for you to remember where she was 'born'

the entire piece measures approx. 7" tall and is approx. 5" across {tuffet}
nicely heavy & sits well too…
