Here’s what we’re working on in the 1840 Farm Studio. Click on a photo to enlarge.
Yesterday's pink basket with gingham and polka dots was so popular that I made another one. I just added Small Egg Basket #0521 to our shop. I hope that you like this pink beauty as much as yesterday's! www.1840farm.etsy.com
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?
I love how these colors and patterns are coming together, don't you?
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.
The basket I started this morning turned out beautifully. I just love this bright blue fabric paired with orange, brown and tan.
Suddenly, the studio looks like Valentine's Day central with all of these Heart Shaped Table Baskets and Candy Jar Sets! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #heart #basket #trivet #valentine #valentinesday #etsy #etsyshop
Our Fall Collection is starting to take shape...
I bought this fabric almost a year ago. I love the little birds, the colors, and the assortment of patterns. In fact, I love it so much that I can't seem to decide what to make with it. Hmm... #1840farm #fabric
Let's start our day in the studio with a bit of cranberry and sage. #1840farm #fabric #egg #basket #handmade #repurposed #etsyshop

This lovely combination of crimson, sage green, buttercup yellow, and flax is coming together at the sewing machine right now. I love how this basket is taking shape!
It's been a busy day in the studio. I stitched two egg baskets, put together six Mason jar vase kits, and made fourteen wine sleeves for our Etsy shop. Now it's time to head into the farmhouse kitchen and make a batch of spaghetti and meatballs for family
Our 1840 Farmhouse Style Fall Placesetting Table Basket Set is taking shape. I used your input to select the thread colors for these baskets. I love the colors you voted for! Stay tuned for more photos and details.

This is a lovely way to begin my Friday morning!
I'm going to step out of the farmhouse kitchen to stitch up an egg basket for our shop. So far, I love how these jewel tones are coming together!
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.
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
It looks like it's time for me to settle in at the sewing machine!

The scenery at my sewing machine is particularly lovely this morning!

Remember the Medium Egg Basket I made earlier today in bold primary colors? I just added it to our shop. I love this combination of bold, bright colors. They're seasonless. I find it hard not to smile when looking at these fabrics twirled together
This beautiful collection of baskets are headed to the post office this morning. I am hoping that these ten orders will get out ahead of our impending storm so that they can begin their journey to our customers. I have my fingers crossed that they won't g

This color combination had been very popular this week. I better make another basket!
It was a beautiful, crisp evening tonight. I took the opportunity to take photos out on the porch so that I could add our 1840 Farmhouse Style Mason Jar Vase Kits to our Etsy shop. Now I have put all of the animals to bed and poured myself a cup of coff

I am spending my Sunday morning working with pink gingham and polka dots. Watching these cheery fabrics go around and around is a lovely way to start the day!
Double stitching the base of our heart shaped baskets requires twice as much time and thread. I want to make sure that you can use these baskets for years to come, so I'll keep right on stitching! #1840farm #farmhousestyle #fabric #thread #sew #handmade
