Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful
Easter weekend...I sure did!
After spending the morning finishing my new
release, I'm finally ready to share....
~ "Faithful Friend" Tool Tray ~
©2015 Scattered Seed Samplers
This faithful friend was stitched on
32 count Weeks Dye Works ~ Confederate Grey,
using 1 strand of DMC over two linen threads.
To finish this little tool tray I used the original glass
that was in this old tin painted frame.
I'm not in the habit of using the glass, but I'm happy
with how it turned out.
The only problem I ran into using the glass was
trying to get a good photo without a reflection...I must have
taken 50 photos before getting just the right lighting!
To turn your sampler into a tool tray you can use any
oval or square frame and simply drill two little
holes on each end to feed the ribbon through.
I then added a large
bone ring to serve as the handle.
Hope you like it?
This pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop ~
Now that I'm all finished, I'm ready to move onto the
designing of the first kit for the
Humble Hare Handwork Club....COMING SOON!
With so many design ideas SPINNING around in my head
it makes deciding SO hard!
What are your favorite smells of something baking?
I woke up Saturday morning to the smell of
fresh baked homemade bread...so yummy!
Not only is my husband an early riser, he's also
a great cook and baker!
The smell of fresh baked bread always brings back
so many good memories of both my
Grandmother's who loved to bake bread.
Never enough rabbits...they sure keep my family and I
Our farm is just jumping with joyful rabbits everywhere!

In Christ alone my hope is found; He is my light, my strength, my song; this cornerstone, this solid ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace, when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My comforter, my all in all ~ Here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone, Who took on flesh, fullness of God in helpless babe! This gift of love & righteousness, scorned by the ones He came to save. Till on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied; for ev'ry sin on Him was laid ~ Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay, light of the world by darkness slain; then bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again! And as He stands in victory, sin's curse has lost its grip on me; for I am His and He is mine ~ bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death ~ this is the pow'r of Christ in me; from life's first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny. No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand; till He returns or calls me home ~ Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
~ IN CHRIST ALONE ~
