"Be Still My Soul" Tailor's Roll

Welcome friends to a new week filled with
opportunities to be creative!

The third project for 
Humble Hare Handwork Club
is all finished and ready for show and tell...

 "Be Still My Soul" Tailor's Roll
©2015 Scattered Seed Samplers 

Club kit includes the following ~

~ cotton floss
~ charted pattern
~ finishing instructions
~ charted alphabet & numbers to personalize 
~ 32ct Country French Golden Needle linen
~ Andover fabric by Jo Morton for backing
~ John James Petite #28 needle

~ Backside View ~

I used my new Scanfil organic cotton thread in color #4824 to 
back stitch the seam by hand all the way around the roll.

My little Studio helper would like to announce
the results...

Stamped with  "2 Paws" of approval!

This is THEE BEST finishing thread I've ever used!
No tangling or knotting...even using a long length of thread!

I absolutely LOVE it!

Have ever seen long, narrow, 
and VERY FIRMLY packed pinkeeps?

Here are some early examples...

 They are properly known as a...Tailor's Roll

The small red velvet one measures 7" in length, 
while the longest one measures 14" in length. 

  The length was long to accommodate lots of pins and needles,
 used by Dressmakers and Tailors in their shops.

It's never to late to join...

rabbit photo above.

On Friday, I didn't have enough time to share all my 
pictures from my walk on the farm...

The pine cones are no longer green, they are turning 
golden brown as the dry and mature.

A pile of old hand hewn fence posts, just above our pond.

As I started walking this path that crosses over the pond,
there must have been 30~50 ducks that flew off 
when they heard the crunching of the leaves! 

They were to fast for me to get a picture of them.
I think they startled me more than I startled them!

All the leaves have fallen and the trees look so dreary!

Looks like a nice spot for nesting, up high 
and safe from predators! 

Can you see the big grey Squirrel sitting on the log?
He's probably enjoying Black Walnuts!

Old fence post the runs along our property line.

I had taken a picture of this nest during the Summer,
and was surprised to see it still in place!

Winter spectacular!

These bright red berries will look wonderful 
covered with snow!

Weekly Soul Food...

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 ev'ry change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heav'nly, Friend
Thro' thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Hymn by Jean Sibelius...1865 (Verse 1 of 4)

Time to sign off, please visit again on Friday!

Blessings for a great week,
Kindly, Tammy


  1. Such a sweet tailor's roll. Maybe one day I'll have some time, put down the rug hook and pick up a needle. A girl can hope, right?
    Hugs :)

  2. What a lovely post. And now I am singing this old, gorgeous hymn.
