Scarecrow Jack is Everywhere!

Brenda over at Pumpkin Patch Primitives has shown how to adapt the Scarecrow Jack design into a cute little pincushion. This is Jack from the "Scarecrow Jack in the Pumpkin Patch" pattern of mine.

SandiAfterBrendaCloseUp Isn’t he cute? Look at that cute little bumble bee down on the bottom!

Nice job Brenda.

Quite often I get pictures from customers who want to show me their finished candle mat made from my patterns. I’m always thrilled to see them especially the ones that are done a little differently than shown on the pattern picture.

I hope to soon start a picture gallery with all the customer’s wonderful pictures of their finished things.

So if you happen to have a picture of something that you’ve made from one of my patterns, send it to me! I’ll start up a collection and with your permission, I’ll put it in a picture gallery to share with everyone.

So, hubby is on vacation this week. We won’t be going anywhere simply because we still have the construction job being done on the house. They are making good progress but with a small crew, it’s going to be at least the rest of this week with hammering.

The picnic that hubby had on Friday went really well. I neglected to mention in my last post that I was not invited to the picnic in which I spent many days making food for. haha …

Nope, it was for employees only, no spouses. It was a very manly picnic. I was permitted to drive over afterwards to help bring all the stuff back home and wash all the roasters and help him take all the leftovers to the local women’s shelter. I’m not complaining though simply because he put in so much time and effort to plan this through so that guys who haven’t seen each other for years and years could all get together.

I’ve a few special orders that've come in so I’m on super fast stitching mode to get them done so that I can finish working on a new fall turkey candle mat design. I hope to have turkeys ready to show by the end of the week. I also hope to have the house cleaned, the laundry done and lots of wool dyed by the end of the week, so we’ll just see how good I really am at completing things!

Oh … and it’s our wedding anniversary today! My husband and I have been married for 35 years! Wow, he’s really amazing to have put up with me for all this time. Seriously. :)

Happy Day everyone!

Happy Anniversary to the two of you! Love your Scarecrow Jack hanging out on the pin cushion. My daughter just got a job offer after two months of being back in MN - with a masters degree and 6 yrs. experience. She is grateful. Hope Rachel's contacts come through for her. You say turkey coming up? How fun.

Cute pincushion that's going to be when it makes it's finished! And funny will be mine. :-) I'm one of four in Brenda's third wool round robin and after I stitched a stalk of corn on my pc base, she added your Scarecrow Jack design. My favorite season is Autumn and so it will be fun to see what else is added to the pc base. It is currently in the hands of Kaaren at The Painted Blog and then will make one last stop at Michelle's before coming home to me.
Happy Anniversary! Oh, and kudos for helping with the party your husband planned for his old work buddies. My husband's company picnic was last week and was for employee's only. It didn't used to be that way but the economy caused the change. He's not invited to our quilty potlucks so we're even. Wait, though, I prepare food for both so I guess he'd have to cook for us to be even. LOL!
