Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
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?
There's something so lovely about how this combination of fabric and thread came together. The salmon colored fiddlehad spiral is tough to beat! You can get a closer look through the link to our shop right on our profile. #farmhousestyle #basket #fabri

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 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
The second patchwork basket of the day is coming together nicely, don't you agree?
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
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 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

I am putting the finishing touches on the Etsy listings for our new Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Vase Kits. These will be ready to ship next week, so stay tuned for more information and links to the listings!
I added our new Fall Collection Recipe Cards to the 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop yesterday. I'm making up a few sets this morning and wondering which one of these drawings will be the most popular. While these cards are offered as a set, we'll be making up
It's snowing outside, so I am settled in at the sewing machine. Isn't this combination of fabrics in blue and yellow lovely?
It has been a custom order kind of day here today!
How about a little patchwork blue basket to start the day?

This Small Table Basket was just added to our shop. This beautiful basket makes three listings all in fall colors added today. It's beginning to look more like fall in our shop!
This beautiful Large Tote Basket is in the works at my sewing machine this morning. I love the bright punch of color that the blue fabric brings to this basket. Stay tuned for photos of the finished tote!
Remember the purple tote basket I was working on earlier? Here it is all finished and full of purples in all sorts of colors and patterns. The photo doesn't do justice to the scale of this Large Market Tote Basket. This basket is over eight inches tall
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
We're in for another gloomy day outside, but my view at the sewing machine is especially lovely this morning!
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's basket in the fabrics you chose turned out beautifully. Next up at the sewing machine is your second place favorite. This combination of pink, aqua, wisteria, and charcoal is going to be a stunner. Now I just need to decide what size and sha
Oh, the delightful promise of a new fabric combination! This is the first time we have used this combination of fabrics. After stitching them together for a few minutes, I can't believe that we haven't worked with them before. They're just beautiful toge
Let's start our day in the studio with a bit of cranberry and sage. #1840farm #fabric #egg #basket #handmade #repurposed #etsyshop
I love how this Large Tote Basket is coming together at the sewing machine tonight. This combination of chocolate brown, sage green, tan, wisteria, and blue is even prettier than I hoped it would be!
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
First up at the sewing machine this morning...
This seems like a good place to start my day. I love how these fabrics look together already, don't you?
Here's what is taking shape here this evening. It won't be long until this fabric is stitched together into a Puppy Love Basket. Penny Lane and I can't wait to watch it take shape! #1840farm #fabric #basket #sew #handmadeandheartfelt #handmade #etsyshop

I find that you just can't go wrong with polka dots and gingham!
I just added Small Egg Basket #0463 to The 1840 Farm Mercantile Shop on Etsy. I love this combination of chocolate brown and deep orange. Suddenly, I'm craving pumpkin dark chocolate chip bars! www.etsy.com/shop/1840Farm
So far, so good! #fabric #thread #handmade
I'm not sure that our local post office is ready for the pre storm 1840 Farm shipment!
Yesterday, I invited you to nominate your favorite charity to be the recipient of our first event dubbed “The 1840 Farm Community Gives Back”. I loved reading your suggestions and comments. The charity that received the most nominations and votes was S
Perhaps I can finish a basket for our shop before shitting down the sewing machine for the day. Wish me luck!
