Hello friends, I'm happy to finally be back at work in
my Studio after a very long relaxing weekend!
I had wanted to post as usual on Monday, but things
didn't go as planned...sorry for the wait!
~ Studio News ~

Friends of "The Sheepish Needle" have some updates....
Thank ewe for the wonderful response to the announcement
made on Friday for "The Sheepish Needle" Samplar Club...

Are you a needle worker who seeks out sheep samplars?
(then you are a lady after my own heart)
The Sheepish Needle ~ Samplar Club is excited to present

be dedicated to these peaceful wooly four legged
Each samplar kit will be designed with the mission to be
both practical and unique for the passionate

~ Sheepish Trivia ~
Sheep are the most~mentioned animal in the Bible...more
than 500 times!
Secondly, sheep are used throughout the Bible to
symbolically refer to God's people.
Early sign up will begin next week....I'll keep you posted with
more details :)
My family and I went roaming the beautiful Wisconsin
countryside the weekend.
I was so happy to have my personal landscape photographer
in tow...my son Samuel!
There is something so majestic about the
Bald Eagle...so proud!
Patiently watching and waiting for dinner!
Do you get to see dairy cows grazing in your neighborhood?
A lazy Sunday afternoon nap!
This beautiful spring weather has produced such wonderful
Next up, are you ready to see some outstanding olde
Looks like a good wind storm could blow this one down!
It's nice to see a well kept barn that's still in good working
Wow, looks like this one was just freshly painted!
I love this one...totally weathered and prim looking!
Great looking and patriotic!
These olde tobacco barns are starting to get as
scarce as "hens teeth"!
It started raining, but I love the misty look of these two
Hope you enjoyed the highlights of our
Wisconsin countryside drive.
But wait, first I must show you a special treasure I
found on our travels....
Antique Corticelli Spool Silk ~ lap work table!
Original labeling on both sides...this is the best side.
This side has more wear, but my husband, who is excellent
with paints and antiquing techniques has kindly
offered to restore the scratches...yay!
I found this at one of my favorite antique shops that is
unfortunately going out of business.
What a find...I've never seen anything like this before!
Plus, the price was right at 50% off of the original
price of $75.00, how could I not bring it home for only $37.50!
~ Weekly Soul Food ~
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
~ Psalms 23:1~3...KJV ~
I look forward to visiting again on Friday!
