"Pure in Heart" Pinkeep Pillow ~

Welcome friends, how is your day going?

I'm enjoying a very blustery Autumn day...the wind
nearly carried off my finished pinpillow while
taking photos!

After rummaging through the barn for just the right
photo prop, I was happy to find an old 
weathered garden gate!

I hauled it up to the back porch, dusted it off,
screwed in place an old porcelain fence insulator
 as a hanger and I'm finally ready to share...

"Pure in Heart" pinkeep pillow

A full alphabet and numbers will be provided to personalize
 with your initials & any year you choose.

Silk ribbon and two small pearl shell rings will also 
be included, plus the Civil War Reproduction 
fabric for the backside...

This is
The Sheepish Needle Samplar Club's 
second kit, scheduled to ship on 
October 23rd.

I'm going to have to see about getting this 
garden gate hung on my "Bird Garden"!

These are my friendly sheep models who inspired
my sheep motif!

It's never to late to join the club...

Sunday's Secret Samplar Update...

While watching Sunday football,
I finished charting my secret samplar...yippee!

Now, to order just the right linen...I'm thinking
Weeks Dye Works 36 ct. Straw.

Then the hard part, choosing just the right colours!
Silk for sure...pattern will also include
DMC alternatives.

Plus, the Green Bay Packers are now 5~0!!!!

My mother's old wagon wheel...

From a distance I almost missed something special
tucked into the vines...can you spot it? 

Getting a little closer...

An abandoned birds nest...on the top rim!

The next couple of pics were taken by my son Sam while
 walking back by our pond...

WOW...look at the giant size hole made by  
Pileated Woodpeckers!!!! 

The water level of our pond is really low right now...

Ancient artifacts right in our own pond...old farm machine!!

A special thank you for all the extra special 
get well wishes I received last week...

I'm happy to say I'm fully recovered!

Until Friday, enjoy your week!

  1. I like how you attached the ribbon using the rings. Very classy! Isn't it amazing the size of the hole that woodpecker made.

  2. That sheep you designed is just precious. I wonder, will you be removing the old wheels from pond?
    Go Pack Go!

  3. What beautiful pictures. I love that pinkeep!! I am glad you are feeling better.
    I hope you have a lovely week!

  4. I can hardly wait for the kit to arrive. I loved the delicate floral border hovering over the sheep and the Civil War fabric.

  5. Tammy: Another amazing pattern for sure, this is adorable.
    love the outdoor pictures, so pretty, and to find a piece of machinery in your pond so cool.


  6. Great pinkeep! Love that Civil War fabric. My dad died 3 months to the day earlier than your mother, at 71. He was too young. Love your pictures.
