Well, TV room is done! cleaned, repainted, decluttered and reorganized – all the “stuff” has been moved to the porch for our guild auction next spring or for the thrift store. It looks and feels so much better and we found nothing living or mummified behind the biggggg furniture. Now onto the storage rooms where I have, hmmmm, more “stuff” to dispose of including an antique, very primitive wool winder, some antique drying racks, a long primitive shelf – hmmm maybe I need to have a sale! 🙂

Our final box class with teacher Helen Gordon went really well – it was a bit overwhelming at times but we all finished (or are in the process of finishing) our wonderful boxes. I love the way my box turned out and once I have pix from the rest of the class will share all the box pictures. In the meantime, a picture of mine and my sister’s plus some pictures of what Helen and I were up to this weekend and some pictures from others of completed pieces…

Lois send me a picture of her lovely completed punch needle (pattern by Michelle Palmer) mounted on a piece of slate…


Brenda send me a picture of her completed Sheep Farm (one of my Karla Gerard punch needle patterns) – she did an amazing job…My completed box – I designed the crow and sunflower to go with the fabric – well kind of 🙂 …
Betty’s sweet sheep punch needle box… Helen mounted her punch needle to one of the paddles-by-Vince that I sell… and this one to an old, we think, butter paddle – isnt that sky amazing… and this one to a vintage sewing machine drawer (pattern by A piece of work that I carry)… I framed my version of Sheep Farm…  and Helen’s stunning poppies mounted on Loden coating…

  1. Loved all these pieces of work. I would love to make a box. Lovely idea.

  2. Your boxes turned out beautifully. We’re still working on ours from Saturday but some were very close to completion when leaving. I’ll forward the pics I have next week some time. Not sure if mine will be ready by then. Hoping so!

    All the best – and really hope to see you Tuesday Loretta! 🙂 They’re calling for snow, which is fine. As long as there’s no ‘mixed’ stuff, I should be there. It would be great to see and meet you too Betty, if you’re joining Loretta. 🙂



  3. Beautiful pieces of art work! I love the crow in the box…well done! Len

  4. Beautiful boxes I must feel good to get the painting done.
