A Busy Summer!

 Wow it has been a whole month since I have been on here!  What have I been up too????
Well of course the grands are a big part of the summer and we have been busy with the library, outside play, reading books, and baking cookies :)
The punch needle is still popping through the cloth in the late evenings after the grandkiddos have gone home.  The above piece is about 15"  across and I like all the silly sheep.  

This lively rooster is one I did in a class recently with Heather Ritchie.  I used lots of different things to create the flowers and the bright rooster tail.  The edge is also crocheted.

I am teaching a couple of classes in oxford punch and decided a stocking would be a fun piece.  I have 7 patterns for stockings and mittens I will share the rest sometime soon.  I have included them all in a booklet.

I finally completed Betty's rug.....yes the lil' darlin' is 4 months old!  Momo is slow but sure :)

The summer is quickly passing and I have been in full speed getting ready to leave for Branson, Missouri the early part of September.  I will be vending for 2 months at Silver Dollar City.  So lots of packing, sorting, and packaging has been happening around the farm!

Hopefully I will be able to catch up on what all of you have been doing soon.

Happy Trails.....Ginger

You have been keeping busy and making some fun new pieces. I need to make a larger frame for rug punch, would love to try a yarn rug.
