~ Reflections of 2014 ~

Hello my dear friends!

What a year this has been for me!

The year began with MUCH frustration,
between recovering from eye surgery combined 
with being at war with my computer, while 
trying to teach myself how to make 
Scattered Seed Samplers 
become a reality.

I'm SO happy that my eyes are
finally healed, I won the battle with my
computer, and I'm learning as I go
with my designing!

  As 2014 is quickly coming to a close, I thought today
would be a great day to reflect on the eleven
patterns released during my first year as a designer.

I'm really excited about starting the New Year, 
especially with so many major obstacles
now behind me!

In 2014 I was happy to have:

~ Hoffman Distributing &
~ Norden Crafts 

as my distributors!

For 2015 I will also be adding to that list.

~ Yarn Tree Distributing


Spring of 2015

I'm working on the details for a very
 special addition to Scattered Seed Samplers.....I'll
be releasing the information sometime in
January :)



I LOVE to do drawings for free gift
starting in January I'll be doing ~ 



As I look out the kitchen window all I can think about is......


My favorite time of the year!!!


Check out this nice decorating!

While driving through the very small town of 
Coon Valley, Wisconsin, this old 
brick farmhouse is a Chiropractic lights up 
the entire little sleepy town!


~ Weekly Soul Food ~

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do,
do it with thy might;
for there is no work,
nor device,
nor knowledge, 
nor wisdom,
in the grave,
whither thou goest.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and I look
forward to our next year!

  1. Happy New year to you, Tammy!

    I love your work. Each release is better than the last. The rabbit pinkeep is especially pretty once worked up. I remember how your husband helped you be able to show all sides of it with mirrors. As soon as I get my thoughts together, I plan to order three other of your patterns that I'm hankering to do.

    Can't wait for spring. My husband and I will celebrate our ***50th*** wedding anniversary on the first day of spring. It can't be possible! Heck, I'm just a few years older than 50, aren't I?

    Love from Diane in North Carolina

  2. Hi Diane,

    Thank you very much for your continued support and's TRULY appreciated! My birthday is on the first day of Spring....I'll be thinking of you come March 20th!
