~ Hands To Stitch ♥ Hearts to God ~

Good Monday morning...wait, I guess it's
already afternoon!

Monday's are always my busiest day of the week,
with all my weekend orders to get out, plus 
the never ending out of the blue
distractions that gobble up my work day.


~♥~ Busy Hands Make Happy Hearts ~♥~

~ Here's a fun way to display some of  YOUR sewing goodies ~

I started this display with a heavy cast hand that
I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I didn't know
what I was going to do with it at first....until one day
the idea came to me after purchasing the
rabbit thimble displayed on the middle finger...and
from there I added my Grandma's little old embroidery
hoop (so dear to me), the old scissors, and finally
the antique strawberry & acorn emery's
with sterling silver tops.

~ There is something SO charming about strawberries & acorns ~

~ Monday Inspiration ~

I purchased this neat picture at the Mayo Clinic Gift Shop
in Rochester, Minnesota last fall after my
eye always fills me with inspiration when
I LQQK at it!

~ Mother Rabbit & Chicks Hooked Rug ~

A friend of mine in Rochester, Minnesota
hooked this wonderful
rug for me...I have it displayed on a
wall in my Studio.

~ Today's project ~ Clean up this old shelf ~

Yesterday, I mentioned hanging a
corner shelf in my bedroom nook that I'm
trying to's that shelf.
I bought it at a flea market years ago, the
previous owner had completely painted over
the lovely old glass nob :(

So with a little steel wool, I've now got that problem
taken care of.  Now, I just need to give it an all
over clean up before I get
my Irishman to hang it up for me!

It's been raining here all day long, but I need to
grab my coat & umbrella and head to the
post office.

Until tomorrow....enjoy your day with stitching hands & hearts to God.

Kindly, Tammy ~♥~


  1. Hi Tammy,
    I really love what you did with your metal hand!!! So clever and unique, using all those pretties!!! LOVE the acorn and strawberry emerys too!! I have a fabric hand that I use in a very similar way, with old buckles, pins and other accessories!! I keep telling myself I need to make some of them as they are just so fun AND usefull!! One of these days!!!!

    Love the corner cupboard too and you will certainly have fun with that!!! I have a black one that I just love!!!

    Take care and have a lovely week!

    Warm Hugs~
