Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
Take a look at what's first in line at the sewing machine this morning. Isn't this a lovely combination of fabrics?
During the next week, The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop will be getting ready for fall. I'm not in any hurry for summer to come to an end. I plan to enjoy every last moment of summer. Many of you have already requested baskets in fall colors. It won't be lo
When we moved into the farmhouse, we discovered this old wood door down in the cellar. From what we can tell, it was the door to the root cellar. It was still standing at its post right below the farmhouse kitchen. This door is distressed from years of
Do you remember our Farmhouse Style wine trivets from last year's holiday season? This year, we've added a length of handwrapped fabric coil to use as a drip collar. These sets make great hostess gifts and are also perfect for shipping as they are lightwe
You may have noticed that the inventory of handmade baskets in our shop has been slim lately. We're making new baskets every day, but they are selling faster than we can make them. Many of them have sold within the first five minutes and others haven't
I'm at the sewing machine bright and early this morning. I hope that you're ready for a steady stream of basket photos in your newsfeed today! #1840farm #FarmhouseStyle #basket #fabric #sew #handmade #repurposed #EtsyShop
We find ourselves in between snowstorms today. We finished cleaning up from the latest storm yesterday and have more snow on the way this evening. I am making the most of the lull by preparing Etsy orders for shipment. This collection of baskets will be
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon stitching up Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Baskets. These two are ready to send on their journey to their new homes. With any luck, I can stitch up a few more today to join them! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #heart #b
This basket is headed to our local post office today. Don't you just love this color combination?
Part of my motivation for reimagining my studio space was to reorganize our fabric stash and find room for additional storage bins. I often tell people that we have a rainbow of fabrics on hand. Today, I thought that I would show you that fabric rainbow.
These fabrics are being wrapped into a coil this evening. Sometimes, you need a basket with a little ladybug printed fabric, don't you? #fabric #repurposed #ladybug
It's probably no surprise that this is what we're working on tonight. Valentine's Day, here we come! #1840farm #fabric #valentine #valentinesday
It can snow and winter on all it wants to outside. I plan on channeling my love of spring right up until it finally arrives! You'll find the link to our shop on our profile if you'd like to take a closer look.
I just love how this fall themed basket is coming together, don't you?
It's hot and humid outside, so I'm settled in at the sewing machine inside the farmhouse today. This Large Tote Basket is taking shape in shades of blue, peach, deep purple, sage green, and cream. I love this combination and can't wait to put the finish
As I stitch at the sewing machine, this beautiful handwrapped cord is calling to me. I love this combination of fabrics and can't wait to watch it come together. I just need to decide what to make with it. What do you think I should make? #1840farm #fa
I hope that you're ready for a very brightly colored basket, because this is what I'm working on at the sewing machine right now.
Another Trick or Treat Tote Basket is taking shape at the sewing machine this morning...
As you can see, Penny Lane is working tirelessly to help me in the studio today! #1840farm #sew #sewing #farmhousedog #dog #pennylane #rescuedog #heart #etsy #etsyshop
This is what's next in line at the sewing machine. What do you think so far?
How about a Medium Egg Basket in bold primary colors?
Yesterday was a busy day. I added four baskets to our shop: two Trick or Treat Totes, a Small Egg Basket, and a Small Table Basket. Three of them are still available and ready to ship. Which one is your favorite?
Pear Harvest fabric was just added to our Etsy Shop as a preorder. I can't wait to see what beautiful creations you'll be turning these new fall fabrics into! #1840farm #FarmhouseStyle #pear #fall #autumn #fabric #EtsyShop
There's another foot of snow expected here today. I'll be stitching up baskets and adding Heirloom Seed Collections to our Etsy Shop as long as the power holds out. Oh, and with temperatures under ten degrees, I will be drinking a lot of hot coffee. Here
This basket is finished and ready to be added to our shop. I just adore this combination of colors. I hope that you love them as much as I do!
Our seaglass inspired Farmhouse Laundry Set is taking shape. The sandstone colored wool is felting right now. It looks so lovely with the rocky grey and sea blue wool. I can't wait to design a basket to coordinate with them so that I can add the set to
Our Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Kits are rounding into form. Look closely and you'll see a bit of chicken wire to hold blooms in place. I hope to begin adding these kits to our shop this week in a variety of colors. I love this set in chocolate brown, tur
There's something just lovely about a ball of wool yarn. The color, the texture, the infinite possibilities! #1840farm #wool #fiber #felt #yarn
For all of you who have been wondering why there aren't any baskets listed for sale in our Etsy Shop, the answer is simple. We can't make them fast enough! We're making them as fast as we can, but they just aren't lasting very long. I just added Small
In between stitching up Valentine's Day Heart Shaped Baskets, I'm making a few baskets for our Etsy Shop. I just added this little purple egg basket to our shop. Purple is always our most requested fabric color, so I'll be sure to have a few more purple
Remember the beautiful bright aquamarine thread I found earlier this week? I think that it's time for me to put it to good use and make a new basket, don't you?
Remember yesterday's basket? Now it has a matching Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Vase Kit. Can't you just picture them displayed on a table together with a fresh bouquet of flowers?
It has been a custom order kind of day here today!
We're in for another gloomy day outside, but my view at the sewing machine is especially lovely this morning!
We're midway through an 85 hour snowstorm. In between clearing away snow, I will be settling in at the sewing machine to stitch up a few baskets. Here's the basket that is on the sewing machine right now. Isn't it lovely?
So far, so good! #fabric #thread #handmade
This basket is taking shape and looking fantastic. I never tire of working with this combination of colors. I just love them together, don't you? #fabric #thread #handmade #repurposed
Medium Egg Basket #0431
Handmade on August 2, 2014
A few weeks ago, I asked you to tell me what colors you wanted to see used in our Fall Collection. Many of you mentioned that you wanted to see dark purple added to the traditional fall leaf colors. I couldn't wait to see eggplant purple with chocolate br
I sat down at the sewing machine to turn this lovely assortment of fabrics into a patchwork basket for our shop. Now I can't decide what type of basket I should make: egg basket, table basket, or oval harvest basket. What do you think? #1840farm #Farmh
