~* Merry Christmas *~

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!  We had a lazy couple days at home this year, since the Winter storm made it impossible to travel very far.  Even with the bad weather we got out to build a snowman & snowdeer!! :)  Enjoy our pictures!

Blessings,  Jenny

~* Christmas Giveaway Winner Is… *~


A big thank you to all who took the time to enter my first

giveaway! I enjoyed reading your comments & visiting so

many wonderful  blogs. :)  My daughter cut out all the names

and added them to a basket and my son had the honor of

drawing a winner.  Here is the first winner he drew…




Yes, that is his name!! ;)  I think his sister was in on the joke!

They both started laughing as he turned the paper around to show

me the winner….   “They both love playing jokes!! “  Needless to

say he had to draw again……….


AND,  the winner is…..  CATHY

Congratulations, Cathy!!




Wishing You & Yours a Wonderful Holiday Season!!

~* New Snowman Pinkeep Pattern *~


Merry Winter 1809 Snowman Pinkeep

You can find my new pattern in my Etsy shop or on Pattern Mart.



- Click on the image for a larger view.

My pinkeep features the words "Merry Winter", a primitive snowman, three snowflake motifs, and the date 1809.
Pinkeep will measure 4" tall x 5 1/2" wide when completed.
Included with this pattern are instructions for rusting safety pins/ straight pins.
My pattern includes cover,  color photo, professional chart, complete instructions, supply list, and staining technique.


This pinkeep stitches up quickly and would look great in an old trencher,  or add a hanger to display on your peg hook.


You still have time to enter my giveaway…. :)  Look for my giveaway post below.


Take care,


~* Oh the weather outside is frightful *~


But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!



I snapped this picture looking out my front door. That’s all the further I cared to go!! :)  The wind is blowing at 25 to 40 mph with occasional gusts over 50 mph.  Wind chills approaching –20. I think I’ll stay inside and stitch or bake today…..




Looking out my back door to the garage…. Hubby had to scoop his way in… “I think he’s still in there.” :)




And, this one is looking across my back yard.

Wishing everyone a nice day! Keep Warm!
