Prims and Whimseys to bring a smile

Glad you stopped by! I'm a midwest girl who has been sewing and creating all my life.
I strive to offer creations each month that have personality and character!

One of my 2nd grade report cards pretty much summed it up...the teacher wrote:
"Karen is a joy to have in class.
She is a wonderful student but needs to work on her self control
and stop bothering her neighbors so much."
God's Grace saved me, but I'll forever be a spitfire!

Hope you visit often!
Karen DeGreve (aka Cookie)

This unusual pinkeep is just as sweet as can be. She is made from a mixture of pink & black wool and stained muslin and measures 4 ½” around. Comes with pins, as shown.

Did you know ... If a Robin flies into your life, she represents grace, tenacity, perseverance and assertion while teaching how to embrace new beginnings with faith and trust! As I listen each morning to the sounds of birds calling each other, I realized there was time for one more Nesting Pocket. I created this unique pocket with Mama Robin and her hungry babies and changed this one up a bit by added lemongrass greens in the pocket for a splash of color. It makes a beautiful Front Door hanging to greet all visitors as they enter your home - but looks just as lovely as a wall hanging. The pocket measures 10 1/2" tall x 7 " wide and comes with a sturdy braided thread for hanging.

Feeding Time is spoken for, thank you!

I really am so happy with the final results of this sweet elephant. Rose is made with a gusseted bottom and will sit nicely but can stand with the help of a doll stand. She measures 19” standing and 13” sitting. She is holding a rose with a sweet hang tag attached. Her dress is a lovely floral on black material and wears pale pink polka dot pantaloons. I also needle felted a heather pink heart and attached it to her bodice. And oh… those violet eyes will draw you in! ** be sure to click for additional views**

Love the farmhouse look? This Rooster is just the ticket! I created this rooster, mounted on a vintage oil can to replicate a weather vane. He comes with a pocketful of preserved sweet annie and measures 12” tall. **click the photo for additional views**
