Not so Scary Halloween

I received a lovely package from my friend Sheri Seibold last week.  She sent me some Halloween fabric that she designed and I have started putting it to good use.  I have been cutting, sewing, turning right side in, and sewing some more and this is what I came up with.  I have wanted to make a Halloween bunting for awhile  with her whimsical fabric and I was so excited to get some from her collection from last year as well as her new fabric from this years collection.  I know some college kids that need some decorations for the season.

Here is my helper for the day Crusty.  She is protecting the fabric from the squirrels outside by giving them the stink eye.  Oh and I better not forget she is adding some of her fur to the project.  I will post a photo of the finished banner as soon as I get them sent off to the girls.

Poppies in full bloom

I think I am done for the night. The baby tears plant that I had set this on to take the photo from yesterday inspired me to add a scalopped background and make tiny little holes in the edge. I think it finished the piece nicely.

I love Poppies!

This is one of the latest projects i have been working on this summer. I got a wonderful card full of poppy seeds and I thought this will be a good thank-you to send for such a thoughtful gesture. I am not sure how to finish it thought of putting another colour around the base, thought it might add a Little dimension to the background. We will see. I plan on finishing it tonight and will keep you posted on my progress

I apologise for the lack of posting this summer. We have been enjoying the summer savoring the end of the summer with our daughter,Paige. She is growing up too fast. Paige has started her last year of high school and next summer she will be off to college. I am starting to miss her already so I drop everything to pack as much into the little time we have left. She is such a joy to have around.

Night sky ~ WIP

This is another little felt sky I am working on. I need to make more faces that will work better with the small scale of these, not so thick and round.

Here is what it looks like without the face. When I finished the circle I embellished some fabric into the felt then added can never add too many beads. I thought your would like to see the work in progress.

Sunny night

This is starting to remind me of a print given to me by my aunt years ago, Starry Night by Van Gogh. I found it odd that I made a piece that was day and night at the same time. Seems a little fitting for me I do wake up at night when the stars come out. It seems so easy to get things done when everyone is asleep or maybe I am in the wrong time zone. I am not sure if she is done but I thought I would share my progress.

It Felt like a Sunny Day

It Felt like a Sunny Day... but then it started to rain again here in Florida so felting will have to brighten up the day. This is the latest thing that I am working on. I embellished her a little last night, beads in a swoosh across the blue part and a little green sparkly thread is holding the front and back together. I am thinking about adding more embellishments to her but thought I liked her simple and not too over the top to show the felting and color blending but I do get addicted to beading and such. As always I would love your input, what do you think?

Mojo Found!

Hi every one I am back. I lost my Mojo, and it took me longer to find it than I had hoped. Hope not too many blog friends have been lost, but I am here and this is what I am up to now. I finally after lusting over the Baby Lock embellisher, broke down and made the big purchase. I have been in a haze of fiber dust ever since and today this little bird came about. I am not sure if I will add beads or leave it as is. We will see what the fairies decide over night.

Here is another bird that just flew in. This afternoon is a flutter with felt. I wonder if I will have a flock in my house by tomorrow. I put this little guy up on Etsy. He wants to fly away.

Check back some time tomorrow, a little birdie told me a giveaway is in order for those of you who have stopped in

Yep, it is another post about Pearl. Crafting has taken the back seat to holiday craziness and I still want to post once in awhile. Here is Pearl singing Holiday songs for you all. Our pets seem to love hanging out around the tree. It is very cute.

Pearl is really getting into the holiday mode here sporting her red and green eyes just for the season. No that is not photoshop her eyes really reflect red and green.

On another note I think I will change the title of my blog in the new year and take out Ray since I don't talk much about him on the blog and change it to Pearl.

Squirrel watching

I thought I had posted this here a long time ago but I didn't. I have a blog to keep our friends and family who live faraway in touch and posted it over there but forgot to put it here as well. I post some things on both blogs and and some how forgot to add this post here.

Here is Pearl and Crusty watching a pair of squirrels chase each other around our back yard. I really can't tell who likes/dislikes squirrels the most. Usually Pearl and Crusty do not come near one another but on this day they teamed up for a round of squirrel watching.

Welcome to the World of Pink & Hank

If your looking for the cutest cards ever, you can stop looking now, because they can be found at Pink & Hank, a wee little shop on Etsy.

Merry Cards
Retro with a fresh twist! This is a set of four 4.25" x 5.5" cards, each with a different design and white A2 envelope.

The set is tied with ribbon and pinned with a button that matches one of the card designs. The cards can be sent to others, but the button, you should keep. It's one of those "favorite things" we all like to have.

Global Warming My Heart Cards
Warm some one's heart with these little snow globes during this chilly season.

Calm with a breezy twist!
This is a set of three 1.25" button pins, each with a different design.

The set comes on a Pink&Hank card with a white A6 envelope. Keep them as a set or share one or two with your swell pals. The card comes in a padded mailer.

Jolly Button Pins
From Christmas past to Christmas present! This is a set of three 1.25" button pins, each with a different design to make your Jolly-Holly-Days!

Here is Sheri's Bio From her shop.
Pink & Hank is a place to find art created by Sheri Berry Designs. Most of my time is spent designing art for licensed products, but this is a place to get to play and cut and fold and create just as I want. It is one of the most enjoyable aspects of creating and now I get to do it here.

"Sheri Berry" is a nickname that has followed me since I was a wee tyke. "Pink & Hank" were nicknames given to my grandparents when they were a young and hip couple. Well, I thought if it worked for them all those years ago, let's give it a shot now and see what happens.

On another note about Sheri, there is a Giveaway for a complete set of this product to go to one lucky winner. It includes the entire line including the Village Paper Pad and a storage folder! Enter by Thursday, December 11. You might want to stop in and check it out at

A Tiny Thanks

I sent off my Embellished felted balls today. They sold on Etsy and I was sad to see them go. I really hoped no one wanted them so I could keep them, I know I can make another set but I really get attached to the things I make and it is hard to see them leave. I made a little felt pouch to put them in and added a tiny felt pouch with a tiny little bitty acorn and a note that said "A Tiny Thanks". I really do appreciate it when some one likes what I do, but when some one will pay for it really makes it special. I am thankful for that.
