Sampler Sneak Peek...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Hope you enjoyed a great week!

This week flew by so fast, 
Tuesday was especially a busy one for
my entire family~

~ husband had an eye appt. at Mayo in Rochester, MN
~ youngest son Samuel started a new job!
~ oldest son and his family left for a two year
assignment in Mauritania, Africa
~ I had an appointment for my yearly physical

The rest of the week seemed to be a 
complete blurrrrr!!!!


My sampler in progress has visited many 
waiting rooms this week!

How about a little sneak peek...

Coming Soon...
"Heart of Wisdom" Sampler

This sweet little sampler will be available
through my Etsy shop in about a week!

Stitched on 32ct Vintage "Buttercream" by
Lakeside Linen

Only two lovely overdyed thread colors 
are used throughout the entire sampler...very
reminiscent of early samplers! 


It's hard to believe tomorrow we
will be welcoming in the month of July!

The place we call home...Our Farm,
 taken this evening as it bids farewell
 to the month June!

My short commute to work...from the 
farmhouse ~ across the driveway ~ to my Studio!


While out on a weekend drive we came across a
site that we have never experienced in our entire lives!!!

It all happened when a mama deer ran across
the highway in front of Sam's truck, she then
ran down into the field where her fawns 
were waiting for her!

By the time Sam quickly spun the truck 
around, this is what we saw...

O my goodness, thank heavens the whole family
is safely reunited, we still can't believe we were able 
to get pics of the fawns nursing!!

It may look like there is only one fawn,
but there really is two!!

Mama finally started getting nervous... was finally time to seek shelter!!


Another road worthy shot,
was this beautiful old stone church on the hill...

So peacefully tucked into a wooded hillside!



10:00 to 3:00

Our Farm Shop is located at ~
W4253 County Road B
West Salem, Wisconsin 54669
(608) 799~4418

Please don't hesitate to call if Saturday
doesn't work for you...always happy to accommodate!



"Stand fast therefore in the liberty 
wherewith Christ hath made us free,
and be not entangled again with
the yoke of bondage."

Galatians 5:1...kjv


Wishing you a safe and relaxing 
4th of July weekend!

Kindly, Tammy


  1. That sure was a busy week. I hope you had time to breathe!
    What a wonderful sampler that will be. One of these days I will put down my rug hook and pick up my needle.
    Your old farmhouse is beautiful!
    Happy 4th to you and your family.

  2. Still hoping when you come to Rochester you could call and we could meet. Your home and studio look marvelous!

  3. Happy Fourth Tammy: Love the photos of the fawns and mom, I have never seen any fawns feed before from their mommy, so sweet.
    That Sampler looks lovely, you are so sneeky showing just a little peek.
