Sometimes You Just Feel Like....

Punching something! Well I finally broke down and cleaned up my craft room. So now I feel like I can setttle down and make some lil' rugs to go on some small barnwood benches I have.

With my oxford #10 punch needle and some #6 wool strips this lil' dog a design by Frank Bielec is coming right along within just a few minutes.
If you haven't ever tried oxford punch and you enjoy rug hooking or needle punch you should really give it a try. You can mix wool and yarn and it does give it that old well worn look.

This piece I'm actually showing is on the backside. I'll have it punched before I head off to bed and then bind it tomorrow.

Well the church dinner at our home went very well even with a cold wind blowing. The kids enjoyed riding the bikes, jumping on the trampoline and just plain having fun. We had lots of different chili's, homemade soups, and then of course some wonderful desserts.

Well back to punching!
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying the start of a brand new week.

Happy Trails....Ginger

I'm glad to see you have some time for crafting again. Your puppy is looking great!

Maybe once I get my stuff moved next door.... maybe I can find my #6 cutter & try this!

Have a great day!

It looks wonderful, I can't wait to see it finished. I never thought about using both wool and yarn. I need a class, I can tell. Thanks!
