~ February's Gift Giveaway ~

 Oh what a GLORIOUS Day....I'm FINALLY myself again!

I was enjoying a simply wonderful Saturday, finished my 
new pattern, but then my life came to a screeching 
 halt at 9:00 p.m. shortly after eating popcorn
from Target!

It wasn't the nice fluffy fresh popcorn you would normally 
expect during the day, but the scrapings from the 
bottom of the popper!

My husband is taking some of it to the health department
to be tested.

I've never been so sick in my life...I seriously thought I 
was dying!

Sunday and Monday were spent dealing with major 
stomach problems, while Tuesday was spent dealing with a ....

Massive headache as a result of tense muscles from constant

I kept telling myself ~ 

'This too shall pass'

I would like to thank you ladies for the special 
get well wishes...they were TRULY appreciated in my distress!

Taking a nice hot shower and finally eating a piece
of dry toast this morning NEVER felt or
tasted SO good!


Now that it is already February 4th, 
and I'm behind on so many things my main 
priority today is to post February's Gift Giveaway....

This month's drawing will be for this old red shuttle bobbin,
which I've turned into a ink pen.

It can be easily replaced by simply pulling the old ink cartridge 
out and replacing it with a new one.

The "Bick" ink pens have the perfect cartridge.

Simply leave a comment at the end of this post 


Email me at 

Your name will be entered into the drawing :)

I'll be doing the drawing either this Friday or on 


~ Midweek Soul Food ~

(17) For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, 
worketh for us a far more exceeding and 
eternal weight of glory;

(18) While we look not at the things which are seen, 
but at the things which are not seen: for the 
things which are seen are temporal; but the things
which are not seen are eternal.

~ 2 Corinthians 4:17-18...KJV ~

This too shall pass is a famous line often said by people
when going through tough situations.  While many people use
this phrase and attribute it to the Word of God, the 
reality is that this line is never actually spoken of in the 

However in the Bible these verses in 2 Corinthians
speaks on our troubles not lasting forever and that these 
troubles and situations that we are faced with actually help to 
produce a glory that vastly outweighs any of them.


Please remember to enter your name in the drawing

I'll be releasing my new pattern on Friday's post...see you then!

~Kindly your friend, Tammy~


  1. Tammy, sorry that you were so sick, but glad that you're feeling better. What a horrible experience with Target.
    The bobbin pen is a wonderful idea!

  2. Wow, very scary. Glad you're feeling better. Oh new pattern...I'll be back Friday then!

  3. Food poisoning is scary stuff. :( Sorry you had to go through that.
    Please add me to your bobbin giveaway!
    Blessings from Jessica

  4. Oh goody, you're well or at least better. Been thinking of you. Don't do too much too soon.

  5. Tammy so glad you are feeling better. What a creative and fun idea to make the shuttle bobbin into an ink pen. Please count me in!

  6. Tammy, not a fun time with food poisoning been through that myself after eating at a local restaurant spent a few days in the hospital so I feel for you! Just so very happy you are on the healing side...can't wait to see the next pattern it's sure to be another winner. The bobbin pen is a cute idea...blessings....

  7. I'm going to throw a new idea of what you had into the mix. It happened to me with popcorn. Diverticulitis. I had fever and chills and stomach pain on the left lower side (I am a nurse practitioner and didn't figure it out till I was seen at the local ER. Though I was going to die from the pain. Glad you are better, be careful what you eat for a few days to be sure you are all healed up in there. Soup and toast are the best. Looking forward to the next new pattern release!! Kathy

  8. I had food poisoning last took a month before I felt like myself again. It is nasty and something you do not forget.I hope you will feel better real soon. I would love to be entered in the draw for your lovely pen.

  9. Glad you are better. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks

  10. Wow ~ no more popcorn from Target for me! So very sorry you have been ill, but I'm so glad you're on the mend. Love the bobbin!!!
