Just One more week to go...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

I'm so happy with the progress that has been
 made this week on the farm shop project,
just ONE more week to go...

Scattered Seed Samplers 
Needlework & Antique Shop 

located on our farm ~
W4253 County Road B
West Salem, Wisconsin 54669
(608) 799~4418

We'll be open every 
Saturday, 10:00~5:00
for the Holiday & Christmas Season!

This next week will be spent
finishing up final details!

I'll share a full photo tour of the
shop one day next week!


Our Hancock Fabrics store went out of 
business, but has been now replaced with
a JoAnn Fabrics Store...yay!

Their grand opening was this 
mini sewing kit!

This is just perfect for the glove box 
in my car!

Kit includes scissors, thimble, pin & needles,
needle threader, spools of thread and
best of all I love the pink tomato 


We've been busy harvesting the endless
volunteer pumpkins in our big ditch...

Big and small they're growing in the most
surprising these rocks! 

Big ones growing up through
an old discarded wood pile!

Even sandwiched between boards!

Such a great harvest to be 
gifted with so many lovely pumpkins!


Also, back behind our barn is
our old chicken hutch...

Years ago, we had three beautiful laying
hens...Molly, Annie and Fergie!


Our lower barn is getting a 
fresh coat of paint...

Here Sam is putting on the first coat.

Half done...will look better after the second coat!

All finished...looks nice and fresh once again!


Weekend Soul Food...

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried, he shall receive the
crown of life, which the Lord hath promised 
to them that love him.

Let no man say when he is tempted, 
I am tempted of God: for God cannot be 
tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn 
away of his own lust, and enticed.

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth
forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, 
bringeth forth death.

James 1:12~15...KJV


Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Many Blessings,


  1. What a great crop of stray Pumpkins.
    I guess they will grow anywhere.
    The barn is looking good.

  2. Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere !
    The barn looks great. You must be very excited to open up shop.
