~ Rabbit Tracks ~

Hello friends far and near, hope you're enjoying this 
last Friday of February!

Here in my little corner of the world it's only 14° out,
but at least the sun is out!


While doing some house cleaning, I put away my red sewing
 items for February and set out some green goods....

Miniature sewing basket, straw pincushion, 
long silk tailor's roll, and straw trinket basket.

My favorite is the sweet little sewing basket with its 
delicate old silk lining.

I love old baskets, especially with faded ribbons!


Look at what I found at a local antique shop...

Little wooden bowl filled with 5 old rug hooks and a scoop.

This scoop will work perfect for measuring coffee when I'm
coffee staining linen.

What great handles on these hooks.  I think the one in the middle
is made of brass or copper....totally cool!

This morning I finished stitching the pinkeep model for
Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club.

Now, to find just the right homespun fabric
for the top and bottom.  

I can hardly wait to share the finish with you...hopefully soon!

To become a Little Sparrow member, just click onto the 
direct link to my Etsy shop below ~

The first pinkeep kit is scheduled to ship March 20th.


Here's a personal project that I'm hoping to fix up....

Wall thread holder with hooks and even a pincushion.

I'm planning on re~covering the pincushion with a 
sampler motif.  

After removing the old pinkeep, I noticed the wood was signed!

Next, I removed the old worn green velvet.

I'll recover the original board and padding with my handwork.

Hope to finish this in between deadlines.


Here is a close up of rabbit tracks in the snow...

Abby now hangs out with her rabbit folk, but she still loves to come
 up to the farmhouse and hang out under the old Bronco.

 They must have lots of fun chasing each other, 
because there are rabbit tracks every where!

 Be Still, My Soul ~ Verse 1

Be still, my soul;  the Lord is on thy side; 
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; 
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly friend 
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.


Have a wonderful weekend my friends,
stay nice and toasty warm!

Blessings from Scattered Seed Samplers,
Kindly, Tammy
