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.

Philippians 4:4...KJV


Thank you kindly for stopping by and 
visiting with me today!

Blessings, Tammy


  1. Just loved your beautiful fabrics. Makes me want to handle and smell them.......SO..enjoy reading about your ideas.
    Pussy willow wreath looks gorgeous too.
    .Being in the UK. Cannot participate in your clubs...but get so much enjoyment reading about it all.

  2. Sounds like fun.
    Those Civil War fabrics and Wool look gorgeous!

  3. lovely post! I would love to join the pinkeep club using your installment plan.

  4. Hi Tammy, I so enjoyed this post. Love the 'Civil war' fabrics and those Pussy Willows are beautiful... Wished they grew here, but they do not. So I just order them and I am pleased, but it is just not the same as gathering them fresh from the fields.
    Folk Art Hugs and Peace for ALL,

  5. Love the fabric as a quilter;
    Love the dyed wool as a rug hooker
    And wool appliqué person
    You always inspire!! ❤️

  6. Greetings Tammy: I do miss the Sparrow Club and will sign up for the new club series.
    I am excited for you and for me, I get to stitch again your designs.
    The weather was lovely this weekend and so far no snow yahoo.
    Beautiful photo of your sewing baskets and needle cushions.


  7. Love the pussy willow wreath! I'm going to have to pay a visit to our old farm and see if great great grandma's pussy willow is still alive. It was a small tree when we moved back in the 1960's. Did you know that if you take cuttings of the branches before they produce the katkins and put them in water they will root?
