Acorn Announcement ~

 Welcome friends...hope you all enjoyed
a wonderful week!

I know this is Friday, but it sure seems
like Monday to me...I was sick ALL week with a cold!

It's great to feel like myself again, and to 
 be back at work...I need to catch up on a lot of things!

Please meet some of my Studio Squirrels...

These are my three antique squirrel pinkeeps.

The squirrel holding a pine cone is a 
cold painted Austrian Vienna bronze.

The gold gilded squirrel came from the United Kingdom,
 I restored the pinkeep and fitted him
with a handmade acorn.

The small squirrel is from Germany,
and is Sterling Silver. 

Today, they would like to help me announce the 
winning name for the Acorn gift giveaway drawing...

I sincerely thank everyone for entering the drawing and
leaving such outstanding comments!

If your name was not drawn,
do not despair...I'll be doing another 
gift giveaway in November and December!

Congratulations to David Schump!

The Sheepish Needle Samplar Club update...

I love sheep faces like this one, long noises  
 and ears straight out to the sides!
(one of my local country side sheep models)

I fell a little behind schedule this week with
being sick...

I'm working on the hand finished seam now.

Over the weekend I'll be able to finish it up...

For the finishing I'll be using carded sheep wool.

Watch for the reveal on Monday's post!

I always love driving past this local farm, they have
so many nice old buildings.

Nice rolling hills in the back ground!

Especially love the old stone foundation!

Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,they shall be as wool.

The secret to being happy is showing kindness 
to others.

What can you do to make someone in your life 
happy today?

Enjoy your weekend my friends!
Kindly, Tammy

  6. How fun! Congratulations, David. I may not have won one of Tammi's but my squirrels left me four acorn "bottoms" of my very own last night on the back patio.

    I adore red barns, and your's with the stone foundation puts me in a happy place too. I'm glad your feeling better, Tammi.

  9. Congrats to the winner! Ooh, white pumpkins in their natural settings. Stuffing with carded sheep's wool...hmm. Always looking for a better way to stuff pin keeps. Have not made my drum keep with your sawdust just yet, but after finding the perfect fabric for the fabric on top and bottom, this may be the weekend to do just that!
