Pins & Needles Pinpoke ~

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

My sincere apologies for such a late post...internet 
connection problems due to yet another major storm!

But, like the old saying goes, 
"Better late than never"


Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club Update...

The rain finally stopped...allowing me to chance to get 
a photo of the finished model!

"Pins & Needles Pinpoke" ~ Club kit #3

My fabric shopping went well, the three colors in
this print are a perfect match to three of the 
thread it!

Everything is cut, just need to go to the 
print shop next week.

The scheduled ship date for the club kits 
is on OR before Friday, September 30th.


Every night I've been working late on the
re~organization project under way in my Studio.

I feel exactly like my squirrel friend...

Totally exhausted after moving, pushing and 
lifting lots of heavy furniture & stuff!

Lots of progress and starting to see light
at the end of the tunnel...yay!

Hope to start sharing some photos in 
the next few weeks.

Once everything is running smoothly, 
I hope to start posting again more often!


This past Sunday was spent on a nice
relaxing country drive with my 
two favorite guys...husband Bill & son Sam!

Photos are compliments of Sam...

He is just so fast at taking drive by photos, 
unlike me who has to have everything perfectly
still before I can snap a photo!

Can you see the camouflaged sheep on the 
mound of hay? 

Barnyard friends having lunch it!

Right in the middle of this country road was
this old dilapidated shed, the narrow road circled
around it...just like a turn about!

Love the weathered boards and rusty roof!

Here you can see better how the road circles
around it.

Frozen in time...two old fence post with barbed wire!

From this angle you can really see its age!

No two Sunday drives are every alike...endless country 
roads to explore!


This past week Wisconsin & Minnesota have been 
hit really hard with monsoon like rains!

Farm fields are under water... 

Large round bales of hay floating after flash flooding!

We had water in our basement,
and the weather forecast is predicting more flash flooding!


Weekend Soul Food...

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the 
most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty.

Hope you're enjoying Autumn's changing 
colors in your area! 

Sweet Blessings, Tammy
