HAPPY NEW YEAR…

and may your 2020 be filled with peace, joy, good health, love of family and friends and CREATIVITY!

My New Years resolution (well, one of many that have already been broken in 1 day!) is to finish allllllll my UFO’s and create new ones! So, with that in mind, I actually finished off a punch needle piece this morning…

The sheep head I punched before the holidays but finally this morning I stitched, stuffed and mounted it to a rusty, grungy (oh you KNOW I love rust and grunge!) doorknob – it is now a snow globe…

Finally painted a vintage box dirty old maroon and mounted the Jonie Black A Winter’s Day punch needle I finished, hmmmmm a few weeks ago to the lid…

A Teresa Kogut Santa pattern I punched one morning and finally got around to mounting onto a tarnished silver tray…

Punched a small snowman head in a few hours and mounted it inside an antique cookie cutter…

and now I have 2 more punch needle pieces I did in the last week that I need to mount and then back to hooking! In the meantime, methinks a trip to the junk store may be in my near future as I have now used up 4 of my junk items and the remaining 2 punch needle pieces are being mounted to 2 more of my junk items – yikes!!!!! need more junk!!!!!!

Louise framed this beautiful piece in an antique window and now needs to find REALLY strong hooks to hang it with…

Sherri taught her 12 year old grand daughter how to hook and she drew and hooked this wonderful piece in no time flat – ahhh new there’s inspiration for all of us!!!!…


Linda finished off a small punch needle angel and mounted her to an ash shovel…

Kim punched her nuthatch and mounted it to a slice of tree trunk – I LOVEEEEEEEEE this idea!!! Gord – get that chainsaw out and get to work!!!!…

So, this year for the first time ever, we have had deer with antlers – four deer in fact with antlers ranging from 2 inches to 4 prongs! Of course they had to have names – big spike, medium spike and little spike. Wellll, the spikes grow quickly so they soon did not resemble their names! But now we can distinguish them from each other as 2 of them have lost an antler – so it is big one spike! (how innovative 🙂 ), medium one spike and little spike. Just wish they had dropped one at the foot of my stairs so I could collect it and use it for hanging something but no such luck!…

  1. HI Loretta…as always, I love your work and all the wonderful ways you showcase your pieces. Could you share with me how you affix your hooking, for example, to a silver tray? Thanks from anne

  2. Loretta, you are soooo creative, love what you do. A good walk in the woods might result in an antler😂. Thanks for sharing your brilliant ideas!

  3. Awesome finished pieces! Love, love the window frame piece. Did she have the window frame before she hooked the water-view piece?

  6. Hi Loretta I just finished my first punch needle, the crescent moon. Now have to look up instructions on finishing the piece…i do have some extra large loops here and there on the good side. I think i can just snip them??

    I have some antlers left behind from our deer. Let me know if you are coming to Olde Forge or Burritts meetings and i will bring for you. Jocelyn Gordon and I are going to the February hook-in, so that’s a possibility.

    You probably have some around on your land somewhere…maybe a walk deeper into the areas they travel will yield some surprises.

    All the best to you and Gord! Nancy S
