Welcome dear needlefolk friends...🌷🌷🌷
February ~ such a sweet but short month,

waiting to see the finished model, thank you

Early Maiden Workbasket Club Reveal...
"Tea Time" Kettle Mat
©2017 ~ Scattered Seed Samplers
Stitched on 36ct. Edinburgh Platinum linen,
the model was antiqued with walnut stain after
the mat was completely finished.
Layered with quilting batting to give
a nice texture to the mat.
The backing is a
Civil War Reproduction fabric.
The loop is an exclusive antique
I found these while out antiquing
last year...this was just the right project
to use them on!
The token of appreciation charms are
these sweet little kettles from the United Kingdom!
The finished size is a 6.5" by 6.5 square mat
that will accommodate an average tea pot.

After eighteen winters here on the farm,
the county highway snowplow took
out our old mailbox...
My handy husband
came into the Studio with such
a great surprise...the old mailbox is
being renovated into two separate birdhouses!
This first birdhouse is the back half of our
old mailbox, he's busy working on the front half that
has the little metal flag...can't wait to see
how it turns out!
He just mounted it on my little Studio fence yesterday,
and we already have serious renters checking it out!
Rural roadside barns by none other than
my favorite photo assistant...dearest son Sam!
With gorgeous spring like weather
this past week...Sam had a perfect excuse
to pull his Shelby Mustang out after
being in storage all winter!
Only a few scattered patches of snow!
Blue skies and temps in the 60's!
I'm sure glad he enjoyed a little taste of spring,
because overnight old man winter
returned with a vengeance!
