Rabbits on the Run...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Every day we are entertained with our wild backyard
rabbit friends, they love running & jumping just
 about anytime of the day, but especially
  playful in the mornings!


We feed our rabbit friends all winter 
long and they give us all such joy in return!


Sam spied this little sweet pea huddled up
against the foundation of the farmhouse!

Always room for any stray rabbits here
on our farm...all are welcome!

LQQK at my new custom made sewing bags...

A local lady came into my shop one weekend 
carrying a lovely project bag, and come to
find out she made it herself!

I kindly ask her if she would make me some using
 my favorite Civil War Reproduction fabrics.

This is such a great day trip travel bag, 
nice and roomy with pockets all the way around!

After she dropped off my finished bags, 
I attached this little heart pinpoke that was an embellishment
  I made last year for one of my club projects...love it!

And here are the matching project bags...
I especially LOVE the extra long project bag that will be perfect
for when working on an extra large antique reproduction sampler!

So many times in the past I wished I had a bag big enough to 
accommodate such projects...problem finally solved!

🐇🐇🐇

The Farm Shop will be closed on Saturdays...

The Farm Shop has NEW HOURS,
we will now be open every

THURSDAY FROM 11:00 to 6:00

be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right
hand of my righteousness."

I am really looking forward to a relaxing 
weekend filled with plenty of stitching...wishing you the same!

Kindly, Tammy

The Verse...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Sharing with you today is a sneak peek of the 
Antique Reproduction Sampler for 
Lydia Barnes Pidgeon 1827...

The Verse is finally finished, and
ready to reveal Lydia's words of Wisdom...


Wisdom is attained by the exertion of your intellectual power by
The lessons of intelligent Tutors by the instruction and conduct of
Worthy parents by the perusal of the best Authors, and by
Attendance on public Worship and by copying the Example of Jesus
Who increased in Wisdom and stature, and in favour with God
And Man  __________________________________________


Finished so far are the three borders, 
the Verse (near the top),
the provenance line (near the bottom),  
many of the floral motifs...now to finish up 
the last couple floral motifs on top and the main
center motif!

Check out these wonderful antique thimbles
my husband gifted me...
Found them at a little antique shop in
Eyota, Minnesota...he only paid $2.00 each!!!

They are all Sterling Silver, 
and several of them have engraved 
initials on them!

♛♛♛

Nature's bookends...
Took this picture of 
two deer resting in our woods...so
beautiful and content!

It's a chilly spring in Wisconsin,
but enjoyed my first outdoor walk on the farm...
Wild Chives are peeking through 
last year's old Sweet Grass!

Anyone else ready for winter to make 
it's way on out the door?

The songs of spring bring with them a new hope.
After a long, cold winter, the singing birds offer the 
warmth and promise of the new season, a time
 filled with excitement, and joy!

Old Man Winter...please pack your
bags and go away!

"Spring Gathering"...

Welcome and happy Friday
needlefolk friends!

Spring is in the air and 
I feel like doing cartwheels!

Today a new pattern is being released to 
 welcome in this joyful time of year...

Stitched on 32ct WDW "Straw" linen,
and 7 overdyed colours (1 CC, 3 Gentle Art, 3 WDW)

From my hand to yours...

"SPRING GATHERING" Sampler 

Pondering my early days as a young girl, 
my fondest memories were summers spent with my
grandma on her farm in rural Wisconsin.

She taught me the value of working hard,
working with my hands, gardening, caring for
animals, my list is  endless, but my 
 fondest memory was gathering
eggs from the hen house...especially
loved the "Brown Eggs"!

From my antique stash of frames...
Yay, this sweet frame has finally found its soul mate!


This new pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop,
just click on the image below...

Happy Spring & Happy Stitching!

🐇🌷🐇

I'm still working every spare moment on trying to 
finish the verse on the antique reproduction 
sampler for Lydia Barnes Pidgeon 1827.


If all goes well, 
my hopes are to reveal the verse
 sometime next week!

🐇🌷🐇

The first day of Spring,
 March 20th falls on a Tuesday,
which also happens to be my birthday,
so my family has special plans for
me this weekend...yay!


Therefore, 
Scattered Seed Samplers Studio Farm Shop 
will be closed this Saturday, March 17th,
and will reopen next Saturday, March 24th.

🐇🌷🐇

Soul Food...

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,
then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated,
full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality,
and without hypocrisy."

James 3:17..kjv

Wishing you a fun filled weekend,
and if you haven't seen your first Robin...keep looking
they are out and about!

Kindly, Tammy

In tribute to my little rabbit models...Milly & Molly!

Springing ahead...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Life is good and springing ahead with 
daylights savings time is like icing on the cake!

Sometimes it's hard to believe just how quickly 
time passes by, two years ago I started designing a rabbit 
design but sadly it never got finished!

Last year I had good intensions of finishing it, 
but that didn't happen either!

But, this week I finally finished charting the design!

Here's one of my little helpers giving his "paw of approval"!

Yesterday, 
with the inspiring help of a few
Studio rabbit friends..the linen & threads 
were carefully chosen!

The model is being stitched on 
32ct WDW "Straw" linen,
and overdyed threads.


Started stitching late last night...a sneak peek of "Rabbit Ears"


Now, I look to my little friends once again as I ponder
the title name for this new pattern!


Yes, this weekend will be filled with the 
joy of non stop stitching!

The new pattern will be released in 
 the next few weeks!

🐇🐇🐇

S~p~r~i~n~g...


Oh my goodness...only 11 days until Spring!



Please meet my sweet backyard friend Abby!

A few years ago Abby and I became the best of friends 
and her memory will live in my heart forever!

She loved having her picture taken, 
this is one of my favorite photos of Abby 
grazing on fresh dandelions! 

🐇🐇🐇

Guess what I love to do while I'm stitching?


That's right...it's the best time for me to drain
my brain and jot down all those random 
to~do's that are floating around
in my head!

"He that hath no rule over his own spirit 
is like a city that is broken down, 
and without walls."

Proverbs 25:28...kjv

****
Sometimes I really struggle with self~control,
but seeking God's Word and allowing it to seep into my heart
and mind accomplishes many things;
good things, powerful things, things that 
help me to react and display 
self~control in a graceful,
godly way!

Wishing all my needlefolk friends
a stitch filled weekend!

Sooner Begun...Sooner Done!

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Stitching fills my heart and soul with such a 
sense of peace...quietly sitting and reflecting on the
busy thoughts that flood my soul!

Evenings are my time to enjoy my beloved 
needle & thread...every night this 
week was spent stitching!

Lydia Barnes Pidgeon 1827 Update...
"Perusal"...I love this truly old fashioned word
that is hardly ever used anymore!

PERUSE ~ To read or examine...typically with great care.
Origin...late 15th century

The top portion of Lydia's sampler contains a lovely
verse that consists of 6 full lines!

I have completed 4 lines with only 2 to go!

As soon as those last two lines are finished
I'll be sharing the completed verse.

♛♛♛

Wishing you many hours of contentment
with your needle & thread!


I'm excited to get started on a couple 
new pattern releases for the month of March!
