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)

With Easter around the corner, I have created this great rabbit named Sage. So much details in this sweet bunny, I’ll start at the top and work my way down. Sage measures in at 20” tall. I have hand stitched this wool hat, adorned with a pop of flowers that fit perfectly over a pair of big ole floppy ears. Sage has painted and stained features with a carrot nose and beautiful whiskers! This bunny comes decked out in the cutest suspender overalls and carries a burlap bag that I have applique stitched a flower on the front and then packed it full of stained carrots. oH My - It seems Sage could not fit that big ole furry tail inside the overalls, so it’s out there for all to see. Oh… and check out those fuzzy socks and brown wool boots **be sure to click the photo for additional views!**

SAGE is spoken for, thanks so much!

It’s been awhile since I created some pinwheels and I love how these turned out! You will get one set of 3 pinwheels – one each - measuring 8 ½", 7" and 6" square. They come on stained dowel rods and are perfect to poke in any arrangement. (Flower Frog is not included) - I have 4 sets available for purchase - **click the photo for additional views** ~ 1 Set of Pinwheels Available ~

I have been wanting to make an elephant for the longest time and Paddy turned out to be a lovely Americana girl. This girl comes barefooted because, like her mama, she has big ole clodhoppers! She measures 18” tall and has a removable hair "doo-dad" that slips over one ear. Decked out in red, white and blue dress, scarf and cuffed pantaloons, she also carries a patriotic pinwheel in her left hand. I realize President’s Day has already passed, but for me, every day is a good day to show our Red, White and Blue pride! Lots of detail in beauty <3 ** be sure to click the photo for more views of Paddy **

Paddy is spoken for, thanks so much!
