New Pattern ~ "Midwinter's Day"

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Today I had the pleasure of enjoying what 
felt like a touch of Spring in the air...temp in 50°s!

Last week the temps were bitterly cold
from 15° ~ 20° below zero...a big difference for sure!

A new winter pattern is now available...

~ Psalms 74:17 ~
"Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:  
thou hast made summer and winter"...kjv


Stitching this sampler was extra special...

Because I used this wonderful
antique workbasket that was gifted to me by
my dearest son Samuel for Christmas!

The inside is lined with old fabric that 
is aged to perfection!

I find such great joy is using most all my antique sewing
 goodies that I've collected over the years!


So, I definitely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new computer,
BUT this past week I've been as war with my new
design software... 
The good news is ~
 I'm a warrior at heart and
 I'm DETERMINED to win this battle!


Last week we had a snowstorm...

The wind was so brisk the snow even covered our
back porch...stepping out all I saw were rabbit ears 
poking through the snow!

Truly covered in a blanket of snow!

Not a lot of snow,
but just enough to make things 
look like the Wisconsin
that I love!

These bird houses were once our old mailbox
that my husband cut in half  to make into
two separate bird apartments...the birds are 
fighting over them all the time!

Love my little straw houses mounting on each side of
 the Studio window... all our snow melted today!


The past couple of weeks have been very trying!

Last week I ended up in the emergency room...

I've been on meds while recovering all week...feeling much better!

During that time I found out my facebook account had been hacked,
 had to reset my pass word...seems to be back to normal now!


Love the saying ~ "Life if Goode"...

For when the storm passes, 
"Nothing tastes as good as being at PEACE feels"



Due to the horrible flu season 
peaking here in Wisconsin...we will be CLOSED
for a few weeks!


Weekend Soul Food...

"Come unto me, 
all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28...kjv


Wishing each and everyone of you 
a lovely weekend!

Much love, Tammy

Olde Man Winter...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

I'm loving the peace and calm that ringing 
in the new year has brought to my soul!

A true sense of a clean slate and a reset button 
on sooo many things!

I LOVE making new plans and setting new goals!

This week I've been having fun working 
on a new pattern design using my new Apple computer.

It's a bit of a new learning curve as I'm also
using a brand new designing far so good!

This new pattern hopefully will be released by the end of 
the month and will be available through my Etsy shop,
and also in needlework shops.


I've really been in a cleaning mood the last couple
 of weeks, which always turns ups forgotten
  treasures that have been tucked away
  in boxes and drawers...
Old lockets, books and lace!

I'm happy to say that eight large bags of
miscellaneous items have been donated to Salvation Army! 

And before I'm done...there will be many more!


It sounds like many, many states are getting
a taste of COLD weather...
Every winter I have the same conversation with 
myself...why do I continue to live in Wisconsin??????

The same answer always whispers to my soul...this too shall pass!

If the little birds can survive...I can too!
