~ Good Things Come in Small Packages ~

Welcome dear friends.

Burrr....another cold winter's day here in Wisconsin!

Just think next Sunday will be MARCH 1st!


It's fun celebrating the color green for St. Patrick's Day...

Some simple little Studio gatherings, shades of green.....fills 
 my mind with thoughts of SPRING!

Do you have any green tomatoes in your sewing room?


~ Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club News ~

The first Little Sparrow Pinkeep kits will be shipping
on March 20th....exactly one month away!!!

I'm really getting excited about this new adventure!
I'm just about done charting the design and will start stitching
the model this weekend...yeah!

Little Sparrow memberships are available through my Etsy shop ~


You've heard the old saying, 'Good things come in small 
packages', can you guess what's in this one....

This wee package only measures 2" wide by 1.5" High....any guesses?

This is a special order of my favorite John James Petites needles
 for Little Sparrow Pinkeep Kits.

My family and I still can hardly believe that there's 
1,000 needles in this little package!

I wasn't sure what to expect while opening this package,
and was surprised to find yet another little package in black...

After very carefully removing the tape....I was just amazed that 
this little pile of needles added up to 1,000!

I'm so happy they finally arrived!

Next, I needed to find just the right container for storing my 
new stash of needles.

This sweet little silver trinket box was the first thing that popped
into my was my Grandmother's :)  

A perfect fit...sure hope I never drop it!!


I was happy to receive some new photos from my son Sam...

Wild turkeys out working the chopped corn fields.

I love the look of these slender wild turkeys!


An amazing Mississippi River shot....

There's a lot going on in this picture!

  Hills in the distance,
frozen river speckled with ice shanties, and
 a moving train on the track! 

Here's a closer look at the fisherman's ice shanties.


Check out the colors of this evening sky!

Almost an eerie feeling!  

Thank you Sam for sharing your photos with mom.
