Dusting off the Punchneedle!
As usual I'm always waiting to the last minute or so it seems to finish up projects. Maybe it's because I start too many!!! It's time again to update the Poppy Shop for Feb 1st. Primitives By The Light Of The Moon
It had been awhile since I had used my oxford punch needle so with having located it again and my cotton yarn what fun I had making two little mats. I must say that yarn sure makes the work go faster. Then I blew the dust of my punchneedle and was able to make a couple of new punches for some little boxes I found at a local antique shop.
It just seems like I couldn't keep one tool in my hands for long because before you knew it I found my embroidery needle and with a pattern from Betty's booklet "Meet Willie The Perfect Sheep" I made a little redwork pinkeep.
Time is almost up for the giveaway for the pinkeep. It's listed a couple of post below. So find it and leave me a comment and I'll add your name to the list.
