The first two are punch needle pillows that I designed and they are stuffed with snippets and sawdust. Love how they feel.
Here are some punchneedle snowmen ornaments I made up that are also stuffed the same way, and a few of the boxes I did with punchneedle and did a paint technique on the boxes. Hard to see with the glare of the camera. I did mulitples, but didn't photo all of them. This is just one of the rugs that I did. It's a pattern designed by Chestnut Junction called Harvest House. It was a paper pattern for stitchery that I had bought off ebay a long long time ago. I got permission to blow it up (now 18"x22") and make a rug out of it. I also did hooked mats, but haven't gotten around to taking pictures of them. This one is done in a #7 cut. The next couple of shots are my punchneedle pumpkin pillow, a penny rug called Pennies from Williamsburg and is 20"x20" by LakeView Primitives and some punched pieces on hornbooks that are my own design.
So this is what I have been up to (I wasn't fibbing). A lot of stitching, punching, hooking and painting! I haven't had much time to do anything else. I'm glad that I am just about ready. I spent the day tagging everything, I also sewed on labels and signed the boards and boxes. I am so looking forward to starting a rug that I SAID I was going to do 15 minutes on each day for a challenge I entered. I am soooo bad. But I promise, next week AFTER I clean my house lol, I will get that started. I will share that here as well. I hope you all enjoyed looking at my creations as much as I enjoyed making them. Please respect my designs. It takes all I have to muster up and create them from this crazy head of mine. I hope the show goes well. I'm worried about the rain they are calling for. So please say a little prayer that it doesn't start until "after" the show? I really hope the weather doesn't keep the people from coming. I know I would go with an umbrella lol. Hey, it's in God's hands and there is nothing I can do about it. But I sure did have fun making everything. If it's a rain out, there is always Ebay lol. Would love to have a store or a business someday. Oh well, it's a dream, and dreams are good! I will let you know how the show went. Have a terrific week everyone!
