Neutral Turkey has been SOLD thanks to Lori from Notforgotten Farm
              Scrappy Turkey has been sold Thank You Penny
Well here I sit, Halloween Nite,NO Tricks, No Treats. BUT I got to go to the grocery store yesterday and there IS a chocolate pie all defrosted in the fridge,so I guess there WILL be a treat for me!!! Would anyone like to join me,I'd love the company????
BTW I HIGHLY recommend Marie Callender's pies!!! Whenever I get to go to the grocery store that's my big treat. Yesterday I got 2!!!! They were on sale!!! So far my favorite is the banana cream pie,but then I haven't tried this chocolate one yet!!!
So here's what I've been workin' on,TURKEY RUGS. It's a design from an older Kindred Spirits pattern book. They actually made it as a purse.
One I hooked in a darker more scrappy look and the other in neutral colors of browns and creams.
I think I like the scrappy one best until I look at the neatral one,I don't know.
Which one do you like best????
They measure approx. 8" X 10". They're $72.00 each + shipping in a 1st class envelope. Hurry and grab your favorite,just contact me!!!
Thanks For Stopping By!!!!

Ye Ladye Pumpkin

Back when I was a very little girl and my Mom was still alive,I remember the Soaps on TV that she watched. Way back then each Soapie was only on for 15 minutes. Then after I became a wife and mom,I watched the soaps. Sometimes I just listened if I was busy. But it came to be a special time for me. Kids napping,eating my lunch in peace and losing myself in the stories. They became my family!! My favorite has always been "As The World Turns". Everybody who knew me well,knew that ya don't call when it was on because that was Sherry's break time. Lunch and "As The World Turns". I STILL miss it.
Now I call my life, "As Sherry's World Turns". Everyday life is a real challenge. When friends call they get the next episode of "As Sherry's World Turns". Maybe whether they want to or not LOL!!!! Often I've thought about posting about it here,but I'm really not a negative person and I feel people want to go to blogs and see pictures and read funny or good things or learn things. Well maybe I can post a learning thing. Don't eat the unrecognizable frozen food that they give out at the Community Center!!! You can get VERY sick!!! That's what I learned LOL!!!!
I'm selling this rug pattern by Emma Lou Lais,drawn by Barb Carroll. It's JACK JACK & JACK. Thought it was time to let it go,cause I have so many patterns and even though I work constantly, it's all things to sell. This is a BIG rug, 24" X 36" and I'd never get my money back to hook it and sell it. So maybe someone out there can hook it and keep it. It's $38 + shipping. It costs a little more now on the website.
Ye Ladye Pumpkin is a needle punch pattern by my buddy Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I adapted her to a hooked rug. She's 16" X 19" $160.00 + shipping.
Please just contact me if you're interested or have any ??'s
Thank You for stopping by and I REALLY appreciate my followers and comments!!!

Call It Fall, Call it Autumn, Call it My Favorite Time

I haven't decorated for anything in the years that we lived at that other house.
I may be sad and lonely and my life has become a daily soap opera, but I do love this house and wanted to go back to decorating like I used to. I know John wanted that too. Believe it or not I managed to get those 2 scarecrows put out there with no injuries (to them LOL)!!! Everybody else around here prolly thinks I'm nuts,but the people that come for the open houses here seem to enjoy it. Last week-end I saw a little girl out there in front pointing to my house, and saying, Mommy I want to go in that house!!! I heard her mom say, you can't someone lives there LOL!!! At least she liked it and so do I!!!!
I ALWAYS have such a hard time stopping the Fall and Halloween ideas of what I still want to make. I'm hookin' a rug right now of one of Lori Brechlin's cool needle punch designs.
I also have pumpkins for sale and a table mat. I just put them on my picture-trail if you'd like to go see. And some of my house pictures too!!!

I hope this link works, but iffin' it doesn't, just go down on the right of this blog and you'll see the link. Contact me if you have any ??'s Thanks for stopping by!!
