November Notions!!!

Greetings to all,

What a beautiful November day!!!  It is the calm before the storm -- literally!!  Monday the cold air will be moving in bringing snow!!   I will enjoy staying home!!! But I promise I will be busy!!!  You know Christmas will be here soon!!!!

This is a pin cushion I made for the shop.  It went together so quickly.  What a great gift idea!!!  Just sayin'!!!  I used a pin cushion insert which we have in stock at the Black Sheep Wool Shop!!!  The pattern is a Bird Brain design.  There are two other pin cushion designs included in this pattern.

I know I may be jumping the gun -- but Valentine's Day will be coming soon.  I made this for a store sample as well.  The back mat and hearts are actually a rich burgundy.  They don't show well in the picture.  This is The Little Red Hen pattern we have at the shop.

By the way we just received some new products at the shop.  Patterns, buttons, wool, homespuns, etc.!!!!  Cheryl also brought back from quilt market some wonderful wool felt ornament designs for quick to make ornaments!!!  AND in case you are needing a great idea for your stitching friend, The Black Sheep Wool Shop offers gift certificates!!!

I'm really excited today because I'm going to my first rug hookers group and taking my first project with me to work on.  This is the most wonderful group of gals.  I owe a very special thank you to Lynn who has taught me about rug hooking.  She also is the one who enticed me into this craft!!!  I love it and will enjoy it more when my husband makes my frame!!!  Stay tuned for pictures!!!

Have a great weekend and check back next week.
