Diane came for a visit. First company we have had in a year! But such fun. Not only did we start new things, finish UFO’s but we went junkin! It was the first time I have shopped for anything besides groceries since Covid began. Such a weird but wonderful feeling. The junk or rather antique! stores followed all the protocol and we had to wait outside until the 25% maximum numbers were reached – so exciting when 2 or 4 people would leave and we were allowed in!

So a few pictures of what we finished…

Diane finished her River Otters miniature punch needle piece (my pattern) by attaching it to an antique wooden shovel…

and her Teresa Kogut Santa was attached to an old coal shovel…

Her Pig in Posies (another one of my patterns) will be housed in a wonderful whitewashed box…

I finished a punch needle piece (pattern by Wild Cranberry) and it is on its way to a new home in Virginia…

We started, but did not quite finish, quillie punkins. Had to buy a new glue gun – ever since I cleaned my studio and reorganized I cannot find things – have somewhere, 5 glue guns – now have another!!!)… Once we are done I will post pix of those.

and a few pix of pieces finished by others…

Julie sent me a picture of her completed Christ-Gnome (one of my patterns)… love the way it hooked up…

and Pen sent me pix of her completed Lisa Ferguson pieces (all these patterns are available on my site)…

Elaine sent pix of her completed rugs…

Wendy is working on Pig in Posies and doing a fabulous job…

and Len shared his finished Kirk Brant piece – hooked, punched, stitched and embellished!!!…
