A NEW PUNCH NEEDLE PATTERN…

Well, in times of stress, hooking and punching have been my saviour! The motion is almost zen like and I focus on what I am hooking or punching and forget all the bad stuff. So yesterday I started punching my Twin Horses rughooking pattern as a miniature punch needle pattern and today it is finished! and I am feeling much less stressed!

I tried a new thread in the background – a wonderful wool that I now carry in limited colours for backgrounds and love the way this turned out. This piece will be available as a pattern and kit. I am going to mount it to an antique draw with a metal handle and tin base – great for collecting keys and remotes…

One of the shows that I love to do because it breaks up the month of March (well also because it is a great show and because Gord and I usually go junkin on the way to the show! yeahhhh) is the Peterborough Fibre Arts Festival and Sale. If you have not been in the past you should try to make it to this show – you won’t be disappointed!… And now off to celebrate Robbie Burns day with the piping in of the haggis! (Noooooo I am not cooking the haggis! Last time I poked the skin while it was cooking in the pot and all the wonderful haggis started oozing out of the puncture like lava – had to resort to repairing the hole with duct tape! which gave the haggis hmmmm, a rather unusual flavour!)…

  4. Hi Loretta, We are having haggis and nips tomorrow at the Bowman’s. We haven’t gotten around to ordering the haggis this year, we have a Scots bakery nearby in Maxville and they make a very nice one. They also have the pasties and pastries, pies sweet and savoury. Is everything alright with you two. Julie
