 If you're a purple lover, this post is for you! 
Take a look at some of the beautiful purples we have in stock currently.

Rachel used the fabric to cover this box of Fling's laundry detergent.

 Other side:

This table runner was made by Sylvia Field using a 60 degree triangle ruler (pictured below). She also used the purple fabrics. If you are interested in learning how to make table runners similar to this, we are offering one in our Summer class schedule which will be posted very soon!

Update from Janae!

Hi, I'm Janae. I am the one who keeps the blog updated, replies to most of your emails, manages our Facebook page, and takes care of shipping out your mail orders! This past February has marked 6 years since I started working here at Farmhouse Memories with my Aunt Rachel. I am sad to inform all of you that next month (May) will be my last month of work here. I plan to move at the beginning of June, with my family, to Western PA (Westmoreland County). We bought a farm out there and will be part of a church plant started by our church here at home. Many of you have asked me what I plan to do as far as a job, and I am not entirely sure yet at this point. As far as my responsibilities here at the Farmhouse, Karina will be taking over my responsibilities since she is here one day a week.
Over the past 6 years, so many of you, our customers, have become very dear friends to me and I am so sad to say goodbye. I feel so blessed & grateful to have been able to meet so many of you, and interact with you, and be a small part of many of your lives. Even though leaving here will be difficult, I am SO excited about the things God has for me in the future and where He has been leading my family! May all of us continue to be faithful where God has called us! <3

Camp Peanuts

Good morning!
Most of you know that, unfortunately, Janae will soon be leaving us at Farmhouse Memories...which is why I (Karina) am updating the blog today. We are going to miss her and all the behind the scenes & organizational work she does here!!! Here is our latest scrapbook page using Camp Peanuts Fabric:

Rachel used all three fabrics for the layout:




A card made with the leftover fabric: 

We also have page kits for sale:

Enjoy your day!

Trains & Coffee Cups

 These train fabrics are brand new!!!!
Take a look...

2/3 yard panel

 Some of the images seem to be too large to put on cards, 
but watch how Rachel uses the big images! 


One of our customers, Deb Pittinger, made these four cards using the biggest image on the panel. She simply cut the panel up into rectangles and made them work for cards! Sometimes you just need to use your imagination! 

This coffee cup fabric is also brand new. 

Rachel made this card using the above fabric. 

Happy Monday! 
Enjoy your week!
