Spooky Greetings to all,
How do you like my blingy Jack-o-lantern?  I think she is adorable.  MANY thanks to my wonderful friend, Connie, for creating this great wool applique design.  Last week when my Grand Junction friends were here, Connie came over and brought this wonderful project she created for us to stitch and put together.  LOVE IT!!!!
This flower mat is hanging at The Black Sheep Wool Shop, but it is mine!!  I actually made something for myself.  When I saw this pattern by The Little Red Hen, I knew I had to make it!!!  I purchased the pattern in the spring and finished it a couple of weeks ago.  Completed project in a few months time -- unheard of in my life!!!  (Except for store samples.)  I loved using wool from my stash to make this project!!!

This is a pin cushion I made for a store sample.  It is a Bird Brain Designs pattern.  This was such a quick little project.  I think it would make a great gift for friends.  You can find a kit or pattern and all you need to finish this project at The Black Sheep Wool Shop.  I hope to see you there soon.

Happy Halloween!!!  Be safe!!!

Bye from Scary Sherry!!!!

Fall Happenings!!!

Good Morning friends,

I'm back with more creations and news.  I don't know where the last few weeks have gone, but I'm trying to catch up on my "to do list."  Our little sweetheart, Kenna had a Denver Bronco onesie that grew too short, so I made it a dress by adding ruffles.  This process may be familiar as this is how her birthday dress was made.

 Isn't she adorable.  We kept her with us a couple of weekends ago while her mommy and daddy enjoyed a weekend get away!!!  I can't believe she is walking!  She usually sports some darling pigtails, but Miss Sherry couldn't manage to get those put up!!!  (Hands and fingers weren't cooperating in a speedy fashion!!!)  We love having her and watching her learn and explore more things all the time!!

Larry and I were out for a walk last week and enjoyed the last of the beautiful fall colors.  This tree was just singing with its bright colors!!!  Most of the leaves are falling now!!  I guess winter will be here before we know it.

That means Christmas will be here before we know it!!!  WOW!!!!  As that reality hit me, I started making Christmas get together plans!!! Gift items are already in the making!!!  Sorry I can't show those yet!!!

I enjoy my part time work at The Black Sheep Wool Shop!!!  It really isn't work as Cheryl believes in teamwork and friendships.  I love the creativity, customers and inspiration that I draw from this time in my life.

I was so fortunate to have two of my Grand Junction friends visit this past week and weekend.  Deb and Becky came Wednesday night and stayed till yesterday morning.  We had a stay-at-home day Thursday, but it was fun filled.  My friends Connie and Yvonne came over.  Connie spoiled us by bringing chocolate muffins and a Halloween wool applique project.  (Check back soon for the picture.)  It was such a great day for me as I could share that time with wonderful friends from both sides of the mountain!!!!  Deb, Becky and I did some retail therapy on Friday including a stop in Windsor at the Black Sheep Wool Shop!!!  It was great to show them around as they made their selections!!!  I'm hoping this store will entice them to make many more visits back here.  Saturday we ran couple of errands and then stitched the rest of the day and evening.  I got a lot of stitching done and was pleased.

Have a great few days.   Please check back soon as I will get back on my posting routine!!!

Beautiful FALL!!

Good Morning to all of you!!              

What another beautiful fall day!!!   This is a picture I took from our backyard last night!!! The colors very so beautiful - this picture doesn't do justice!!!  I love this time of year!!!  I guess because the nights are cooler and the colors richer!!!  It is hard to believe October is here and Christmas will be creeping up on us before we now it!!!  I'm busy making and planning gifts for this year!!
This cute Halloween stitchery is done in wool and will be framed for a sample at the Black Sheep Wool shop in Windsor!!!  I'm not a big Halloween fan, but thought these little pumpkin witches were cute!!!  This is all done in wool with some embroidery highlights.  This pattern comes from Buttermilk Basin!!!  They have a wonderful selection of designs.

I hope you can stop by the wool shop.  We are getting some kits together for upcoming seasons!!!

Have a great day and I'll be back soon.
