Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a great Monday! Ours started out dreary but it is very sunny out now. Lovely Fall day. I am finishing up the "Turkey and Tallowberries" punch needle mat today. Design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I will have it listed for sale in my Etsy shop Tuesday 10/25/16 at 7 pm Eastern time if you are interested. I hope this is plenty of notice.
Next on my list of projects is this beautiful design by Doreen Frost of Vermont Harvest Folk Art. She has a wonderful Etsy shop with lots of patterns and other wonderful things for sale. I love to be able to just download my patterns. So easy and I get to start right away. This is a nice big pattern. Had to whip out my big hoop for this one! Can't wait to get started. I will post progress pictures soon. Take care everyone and have a wonderful week, Jen

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday. It is chilly and rainy still today. We do get a peek of the sun every now and again. I have been spending the cleaning, doing laundry and punching "Turkey and Tallowberries". Another awesome pattern from Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I am making this one with 6 strand DMC and I will be adding some Valdani pearl cotton as well. This piece will be available for sale in a few days. I will give a heads up here on my blog.
This is just a picture of my little kitty "helping". They do love mommy's thread.
The two pictures above show how I package up my creations. I love wool applique. I make a coordinating wool penny to go with every package I send out. Just a little something. I know we all love getting "happy mail"!
I hope you all have a great Fall weekend!

I am not updating this blog as much as I would like too! So sorry about that! I will try to do better. This little punch needle above has already been spoken for, just wanted to share. This is a Country Stitches pattern.
This punch needle mat which is also already spoken for was made from a freebie pattern by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I played around a bit with different threads and had lots of fun making this one. Just had to add in a blue pumpkin for some reason!
Also, spoken for is this Harvest Squirrel punch needle mat that is designed by Country Stitches. I really loved how this one turned out. I am using 2 strands of Valdani pearl cotton size 8 and 6 strand DMC in this one. I just had to use a medium Cameo needle. I really like the look of the thicker thread.
I will be packing and shipping today and then cyber school with my daughter. Later in the day I plan to start a Turkey mat. I have the colors all picked out and ready. I will share my progress soon! It is very rainy and much cooler here today in western Pennsylvania, so I plan on staying indoors punching away!!!
Enjoy your weekend! Jen
