So Here’s What’s Going On In My Life…


First off, My baby boy is 20 today!!!

No longer a teenager, Officially a man.

How in the world did this happen???

One day he was this….


Then he was this….


Then this….


POOF! Now he is this!!


Happy Birthday My Amazing Baby Boy Young Man!!

Mommy Loves You SOOOO MUCH! :)


My nerves are also shot today!!

Why, you ask??

Well, this morning at 6am my oldest daughter and one of her friends headed off to Washington DC.

Which is 19 hours away!!!

I know she is 22 but to me it feels like she is 12.

And the thought of the 2 of them alone so far away, scares me.

I don’t like her going too far, that I cant jump in a car and be there in a couple of hours if she needs me.

I know in my heart she will be fine.

God’s Inbox is Full with messages from me on the situation. ;)

So, even though I know she will be okay…. Mom’s Worry, it comes with the job.

Oh, incase you were wondering, the reason she went to DC is,  they are going to some rally being hosted by John Stewart.

So if  you would….

Please say a little prayer for my Kelsey and Friend.  Ask God to watch over them and bring them home safely.


I’ve done a little creating these past couple of weeks.

This week, I made this very prim pin cushion box.


It is a One of a Kind Creation.


I have it listed on my website, if anyone is interested.






Last week, I made this primitive Santa Make Do.

Also a One of A Kind Creation.

I made his hat out of a scrap of the red quilt piece I showed off awhile back.

I also wrapped the old wooden spool with the same quilt.





His beard, mustache, eye brows and hair are made out of old cotton quilt batting.

Hand sewn on to him.



He is also listed for sale on my website.



Last weekend I stopped by a small craft and antique store.

I bought this wonderful pin cushion.

It is filled with sand instead of stuffing, How Cool!



And check out the Amazing antique quilt top is was made from.

Don’t you LOVE these fabrics!!

I have this on a shelf in my bedroom.



I also picked up this wonderful Old crazy quilt table runner.

Tons of hand details on this!!




Wonderful muted colors!!








This is also for sale on my website.

Remember my fabulous hooked rug win from Lauren.

Originally, I had it just sitting on the desk, then yesterday an idea came to me!

I decided to hang it off the back of this chair!!



Doesn’t it look great there!!


Don’t worry, I didn't damage the rug.

I simply put 2 tiny safety pins on the edge of the binding, then tied hemp cord to the pins.



I really love how this looks.

Here are few photos.








I also want to give you all one more quick reminder that my giveaway winner will be announced One Week from today.

Here is what I am giving away.





She is a One Of A Kind  Doll, hand made by me.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until Next Time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you All!

Happy Birthday to your son! It's amazing how time just flies once you get older! My baby just turned 15 yesterday...seems like only yesterday we were bringing him home.

Try not to worry too much about your daughter...I know easier said than done. She will probably be somewhere on the mall in DC and there is tons of security there. Now if she was to be going into the more unsavory sections I would be concerned. I've been to DC many times since moving to Baltimore and everything is usually ok as long as you use good judgment.

The pincushion is cool. Have a great weekend.

Tammy you are a sweet Mom and I have an idea of what you must feel. I have two married children of my own and I am still very protective of them.

I stopped in the middle of your post and said a prayer for your Kelsey and her friend.

Love your creations!
Thanks for sharing all of your pictures.

I love the pin keep. And I really love the crazy quilt runner. For some reason, the crazy quilts are my favorites. Love your room arrangement, too.

Hi Tammy.. Happy Birthday to your son .. He looks sweet.. I understand how hard it is to let your child travel that far without you... If we could only keep them small so much longer but we need to trust God that He will keep them in His care..
Love the crazy quilt runner and your pinkeep...
Take care and will keep your daughter in our prayers...
Try to enjoy your weekend...

Belated birthday greetings to your son. His hair sure did change color!
I know that your daughter is now home safely but it's so hard not to worry!
I like the way you hung the rug from the back of the chair. Very clever.
Hugs :)
