Last week was filled with time spent in the studio stitching up new baskets for our shop and dreaming of spring and gardening all the while. It won’t be long until we can get back out in the garden and start planting the seeds that will become this year’s harvest. Until then, I’ll be sharing more comforting recipes and stitching up more baskets for our shop!
These photos were added to our Instagram feed last week. If you’d like to see these photos as they are added, follow us on Instagram. We’ll hope to see you there!
We just finished wrapping this fabric coil by hand. I adore how these colors and patterns look together. I can't wait to watch it come together as a basket!
I just added this basket to our shop. I hope that you like this combination of purple, blue, and charcoal grey as much as I do! www.1840farm.etsy.com
Snack dinner becomes legendary when your local butcher shop has their own smoked local duck breast cooling on the counter when you stop in. This is amazing and we're enjoying every single bite! @mainemeat #eatlocal
Several of you reminded me that I forgot to show the finished Large Tote Basket from earlier this morning. Here it is!
After this morning's bright pink basket, I thought that we'd make something in muted tones. I love this purple, blue, and grey combination, don't you?
Sundays don't come any more delicious than this. @anjunoodlebar
First up at the sewing machine today: this cheery combination of fabrics is being stitched into a Large Tote Basket. I love gingham and polka dots, so working on this basket is the perfect way to start my Sunday morning!
I have mentioned before that we are nut free here at 1840 Farm. Many of you have shared with me that you also avoid nuts due to allergies. I know how difficult it can be to find good, safe alternatives, so I thought that I would share a few of our favor
Today was a busy day, so I only managed to stitch one basket together. Luckily, that basket was a beautiful one!
It's official: I adore this new aquamarine thread. I love how it looks in the patchwork basket I am stitching together at the sewing machine right now. Do you like this bright new color as much as I do?

It's time to pack up a few orders and send them on their journey. I will be a little sad to see this basket leave my studio. I loved seeing this cheery combination of fabrics as I was working at the sewing machine. I guess that I should make up a new bri

A bowl of hot soup can be such a comfort on a cold day. All the better if I happen to have leftover soup in the refrigerator that can be warmed up for dinner in moments. This is one of our favorites: Creamy Potato Ale Soup. It's hearty and delicious.
This new combination of fabrics has been very popular. I predict that I will be making more of these as your requests keep rolling in.
I see many patchwork baskets in my future!
I made two baskets today that couldn't be any more different from each other. Which one do you like best?

Sometimes, a collection of fabric is even more beautiful than I had hoped. This is one of those times. Aren't these colors and patterns fabulous?
Do you have a great idea to share with @inseasonmagazine? The special February Issue and Spring Issue are taking shape, but we want to know what you'd like to see. Your idea could be featured in an upcoming issue!
Yesterday's collection of fabric made for a beautiful handwrapped coil. I can't wait to work with this coil and watch a basket take shape. Now I just need to decide what size and shape to make. Isn't this color combination beautiful? I hope that you lo
