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!

This fella turned out so cool – Santa is made from muslin with a gusseted bottom. His cape is made from painted duck cloth and his hood is lined with luscious fur. His open cape reveals a beautiful Evergreen painted on his body and he carries a rusty star in one hand to attach to the tree. I love his sheeps wool beard - he measures 11” tall with a weighted bottom. ** Click the photo for additional views **

Tannenbaum Santa is spoken for, thanks much!

No, Joy does not drive for “Uber Eats” but this lovely lady is delivering a tasty Christmas Goose! Her dress and petticoat are made from a wonderful peppermint holiday material and red ticking and I love the combination! She has a mini wooden tree in her opposite hand that she is delivering for Christmas because well, while the recipient is trimming the goose, they can trim the tree too! She is firmly mounted in a wooden pedestal - just check out those wonderful boots! Her beautiful hat is trimmed in greens with 2 pearl hat pins attached. Joy is 14” tall. ** click the photo for additional views **

Judging from the wear on this sweet antique child's house slipper, this must have been a favorite of it's past owner!
