Diane finished punching this fun new piece to hang underneath her shelf. When we designed it we remembered back to our childhood when our mittens were always attached to a cord that ran through our coats and down our sleeves so that we could NOT lose a mitten – hence the cord falling off the rug (this pattern is available). Diane has decided (with a little encouragement 🙂 from me) to hook a rug for every month of the year – 4 down 8 to go! but what fun… next one is pumpkins and gourds and fall leaves for October…

Chris finished triple whipping this lovely rug – pattern available from Isabelle Rollin…

Finally got around to attaching my Tom Thomson to the beautiful box with drawer…

and just finished a LISA FERGUSON punch needle pattern and attached it to a vintage tin file box… I think my rabbit has been rooting for carrots for a while as his nose is a little dirty – kind of like our little chipmunk who comes for peanuts every morning – his name switches from Alvin to Schmutznase(dirty nose) depending on whether he has been “planting” or not…

  7. Wonderful pieces.
    I love the challenge to hook a monthly mat to go under the shelf.
