About Me

Hi my name is Sherry, but I got the nickname Churlann from my kids a long time ago. They thought it was cute so it stuck with me. I live in a small rural farming community near State College PA. That's our go-to town for shopping, work, library and events We love living near a university town but far enough away that we don't have to deal with traffic and the crazy student population on a daily basis.. Especially on football weekends. Go Penn State! I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for 7 years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love. I am a Gramma to 6 beautiful children, ages range from 12 to 2. two bio, 2 adopted, and 2 step. They are I live with my husband, and our little Beagle mixed pup, Angel. We're not farmers but love having a garden and raising some chickens. I also spend a lot of my free time sewing just about anything. I love sewing for for my grandkids, friends and myself. I also have a little shop on Etsy called CreeksideFibers, where I sell recycled wool items such as mittens and purses and Christmas ornaments And various other items like baby shoes, shopping totes and such. My hobbies include hiking, photography, sewing, crocheting and reading. Sewing is on the top of my list though. I just finished working on a block quilt for our spare room where my grandsons sleep when they visit. I also love swapping postcards, letters, small surprise packages, buttons, and photo cards of anything. I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and sugar free for over a year now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 46 years and we are happy happy happy, to this day.

Favorite Music

I love music, music, music. I have a huge collection of CD's. Some of them are signed by the artist. My favorite genres are Bluegrass, Old Timey, Old Country music, and old rock and roll. My husband is a musician, playing dobro and guitar, He has played in several Bluegrass bands. He is currently playing with a singer songwriter from our area that is very talented. We go to at least three Bluegrass Festivals every summer and go to many concerts that are local. But I have all kinds of music in my collection which is vast. Anything from Adele to Merle Haggard.

Favorite Movies

I love to go to the movies. I also watch a lot on Amazon Prime and Netflx in the winter. I like English drama, mysteries, comedies and documentaries. 1/24/20... I just saw Mr. Rogers. Neighborhood and it brought back memories of when my kids were little. Also watched Anne with an E on Netflix. Highly recommend!

Message to swappers

Please don't forget to rate when you receive a swap. I don't archive until rates are done both ways. This has been a problem lately. For this reason I don't join swaps with multiple partners because it is so hard to keep track till everyone rates. Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending. I love reading the notes in my swaps. I learn so much about people. So if you send me something I will definitely read it. Also, sometimes I get mail that I can't read the handwriting. That is frustrating. Thanks for being careful and taking your time. Also an FYI about postcard mailing...It seems that some postcards get marked up on the front, by the postage machine. These are usually on art cards that are not glossy. I try to take mine to the local post office and have them hand stamp them, so that doesn't happen. I love these cards and often display them before I put them away.

Things I love

FABRICS: If you are sending scraps, I would prefer at least "fat Quarters" I can use in block quilts. Vintage fabric prints, especially from the 50's and 60"s. brightly colored cotton blend prints and patterns, are extra special. Currently I am working on small patchwork quilts for the foster care program in our area. Each child will given a blanket to take with them to their foster home and keep forever. I have made 10 so far and will keep making them through the year.
NOTECARDSl; handmade, artsy or photography cards are my favorite, but I'm not picky at all. POSTCARDS: VINTAGE first, black and white, art themed, animals, birds, trains, musicians, quotes and recipe. Would love to have postcards from, Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, and Colorado, Montana, other countries if you have one of those. Also, any famous landmarks. PLEASE...if you can, have them hand canceled at the post office. I would appreciate that. I have gotten some beautiful pcs that were marked up by the postage meter. Thanks!!

Comment: Thank you for the Valentine's wishes card and extras. I have the exact tree punch but it's slightly bigger. My mother used to babysit a little girl who's name was Dewanna so that's where my name came from. She said it was French.
Response: Thanks for letting me know about your name. Thanks for the heart too.
