SHOW AND TELL AND SALE ON REBEKAH SMITH WOOL APPLIQUE PATTERNS…

Some lovely pieces to share with you this week… BUT FIRST the sale. I am discontinuing wool appliqué patterns so have discounted the following to 6 dollars(CDN) plus tax and shipping. I can also make these up as a wool kit so let me know if you are interested…

Holly finished her Goodfish Lake designed by Wendy Tremblay(see miniature punch needle patterns)…

Andrea’s Karla Gerard’s pattern – see the close ups of the embellishments…

And her 4 Martina Lesar pieces…

and finally her lovely penny rug…

Jill’s Sugaring Off punch needle attached to a vintage snow shoe – love the way this turned out…

Each cow is different in Jill’s version of Who let the Cows Out (one of my Ann Hallett patterns)…

NEW KARLA GERARD PATTERN AND CONTINUING SALE…

Rain rain rain – we had rain!!! finally. The drought has been so hard on the trees (well the drought and the darned gypsy moth caterpillars) and the gardens and just on our spirits. Who says there is no climate change! We experience it more and more every summer. We used to put the dock in the water in June and the water would be so high it would be lapping at the underside of the dock – now we put it in in May and yikes it is already a foot lower. Ground has cracks in it and we have to water everything from the lake. I used to fill buckets and schlepp them up the hill to the gardens – terrified of my well running dry. Last year we bit the bullet and put in a lake watering system and I can fill the pond up when it evaporates and water the gardens without worrying about the well turning to sludge. So when it does nothing but spit for 5 minutes every three weeks hmmmm. I did my happy dance again last night when the heavens opened and this morning when I got up it was still raining! How wonderful everything looks and smells and feels.

So here is a new pattern that celebrates water!!! Me in the kayak with … no actually someone else! I don’t have a dog or rooster but I love this pattern. It would be a fun new piece to hook. So, it and all the other Karla Gerard patterns are still on sale at 20% off the pattern and 10% off the wool dyed for the pattern. Email me if you have any questions…

And if you too got rain last night ENJOY the freshness while it lasts 🙂 .

SHOW AND TELL…

Some lovely pieces this week to share…

Margaret asked me if I could adapt my Porkalicious pattern – hmmm, why did she not want a porcupine :-)…

Never hesitate to ask if a pattern can be changed! If I can do it I am happy to make the pattern what you are looking for…

Nancy finished her Heavens to Betsy whale – love this pillow…

Louise punched this beautiful punched crocus piece based on photos she had taken out west…

Dolores finished her Butterflies (her third piece!)…

Linda finished her trawler – memories of trips to Ireland and Scotland…

Helen had three lovely linen covered boxes and asked if we could adapt this Lisa Ferguson punch needle pattern to fit her box lids – we did and she punched these and they are gorgeous!!!!!…

Helen is punching Karla Gerard’s Gertrude and Elizabeth but adapted it to be her twin daughters. She found a spot for it but it needed to be bigger so she is now adding this fabulous border – another adaptation…
