Adam & Eve's Initials!

The back seam creates a zig~zag design!

The pinkeep drum's companion is a sweet
 little apple fob to adorn your sewing scissors! 

The construction of this apple creates a dipple on
 the bottom...resembling a real apple!

Saturday's progress...

Happy Saturday needlefolk friends!

Prim & Proper Pinkeep Club Progress ~

I've been busy in my farm shop studio all day,
between customers I was happy to 
work on the scissor fob model...

I could hardly wait to cut into the lovely
overdyed wools I shared on Friday's blog!

Love the little dimple on the bottom
making it look just like an apple!

The model was stuffed with sawdust.

Now that the little apple fob is complete...

Tonight and Sunday I hope to work on
finishing the main pinkeep...stay tuned! 


Weekend Soul Food...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends...happy Friday!

There is something so liberating about
Friday, knowing you've worked hard all week,
with the anticipation of a little rest and
time spent with family.

Prim & Proper Pinkeep Club Update...
The stitching is all complete and ready for 
 the finishing of a special "Adam & Eve" pinkeep!

Everything is coming together very nicely...
I love the sound of the big brown UPS truck rolling
into our driveway...bearing packages of overdyed wool!

This pinkeep will have a companion scissor fob
made from these gorgeous overdyed wools.

The red is a lovely Glen Plaid, 
and the green is a wonderful Herring Bone.

Civil War Reproduction Fabric with its warm
olive drab tones.

A sweet little apple charm will be included in 
each kit as my token of appreciation...all the 
way from the United Kingdom!

My little stitching alcove in the farmhouse
looks out to the back porch...

I've been enjoying the pleasure of
watching a mama & papa robin building a nest!


It's hard to believe that Easter is almost here!

I do enjoy putting out a few vintage
rabbits and chicks!

I love how this little fellow is 
guarding his carrot!



May you remember this day as Jesus willingly
suffered and died by crucifixion as the
ultimate sacrifice for our sins (1John 1:10).

Followed by Easter Sunday,
 the glorious celebration of the day 
 Jesus rose from the dead, 
heralding his victory over sin, death 
and satin pointing ahead to a future resurrection 
for all who are united to him by faith (Romans 6:5)


Farm Shop Will Be 
"CLOSED" on Saturday!

Will re~open next Saturday, April 22nd.


Easter Soul Food...

But if we walk in the light, 
as he is in the light, 
we have fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleaneth
us from all sin.

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

I apologize for not posting my usual Friday blog,
 the weather was absolutely gorgeous...sooo
I decided to play hooky!

I've been rejuvenated, inspired,
and now I have something I'm REALLY 
excited about to share with YOU... 

My deep LOVE of PINKEEPS has
been really calling to me, plus I really miss
 offering my Little Sparrow Pinkeep club!

On Saturday, it hit me like a ton of bricks to
offer a new pinkeep club!

While on my birthday get away a few weeks ago,
I purchased these wonderful Civil War 
Reproduction fabrics... 
I'm hoping to incorporate them into 
the new Prim & Proper Pinkeep Club Kits!

I'm overflowing with ideas for this new club...
For embellishments I'll be incorporating overdyed wool, 
overdyed wool thread, and perhaps even some 
vintage fabrics, and vintage hardware!

These kits will also include overdyed linen...
Kits will include either 32/36 count overdyed linens 
depending on the project.

I'll be working on the first club design 
later tonight...I'm over the moon excited 
about getting started!

One year memberships for 2017 are available through
my Etsy listing. ALSO included in the Etsy listing are all
the details for my QUARTERLY INSTALLMENT PLAN ~ 

THROUGH THE ESTY must contact me either by
email or phone to get set up on the installment plan.

Last week was spent doing the one thing
I absolutely loathe...working on income taxes!

verb ~ to feel intense dislike or disgust for.

So this week...

I'm literally jumping for joy!!


Friday, while I was playing hooky,
I was actually on a mission...

Pussy Willow hunting!

Success...makes such a sweet spring time wreath!


Weekly Soul Food...

Rejoice in the Lord always.
