{ Wellswept Farm }

...here are a few sneaks at the project I'm working on
that involves the little whisk broom I told you about ~


I'm calling it
" Wellswept Farm "
(get it?)

I'll be finishing it up today,
while enjoying a quiet holiday here on the farm ~

the two cotton fabrics that you see there,
.... one cream/white,
 the other brown/cream
will be used in the actual finish
(that i can't wait to show you!)
actually, the finish was brainstormed more ysterday while Joan & I were in the shop ~
I told her what I wanted to do, and then she suggested something a little different for my idea...
oh boy, how clever this will be!

I'll be using some of the buttons too,
but not quite sure yet the placement of them...
we'll see...

We will be holding (finally) an update here on this blog VERY soon!
we'll be offering new wood items to our OLD as Dirt Primitives© line:
~ a little spool shelf to hold your thread spools or valdani thread balls
~ a small wooden base to hold a reversible sawdust-filled pincushion
~ another winder for your threads ~ (this design will make you smile!)
along with the new pattern above, some small paintings and other needful things ~
We're hoping to release the new offerings this week coming, so stay tuned for the actual date.
Hoping you all have a fantastic Memorial Day!
