Linsay's Farm

The stuga
I've been working hard and will have photos this week, really!, of this ongoing project that finally will be installed.  All the previous treatments that you see in those photos have been removed and the new ones are about to take their place.
Meanwhile, other projects just have been too whirlwind to have the time to document.

So let me tell you what has been occupying my imagination as I sew away the summer: this little building on Linsay Cochran's Kitchawan Farm with its charming windows and robin's egg blue floor.

The moment I saw it I knew I'd have to make a window treatment for Linsay with fabric from my vintage and feedsack collection.

Linsay refers to this building as her little Swedish stuga.  It was moved from the back of the property and renovated for her to use as a farm store for her produce as well as local hand-crafted products.

Though Linsay grows fabulous veggies, I think she really uses the farm as her own artist's canvas.  Everything in sight reflects her unique sense of design and balance.  Form and function are in harmony here on Kitchawan Farm.

I know exactly what I want to make for the stuga: narrow pojagi-inspired pieced scarves to be hung with loops from poles made from branches.
