Wendy finished her second O’ Christmas Tree…and is planning to open a Christmas Tree lot for next year 🙂 …
and Wendo finished her first (of many) Penny tree…
Linda sent a picture of her wonderful wooly wreath…
Sharon finished her mini punch needle Three Blooms…
Wendy sent pix of her fun trees created with kits and a class from Old Tattered Flag…
and I finished showbinding my Sailing Ship rug… ready to hang in the summer although I might just have to hang it in the TV room where it can stay year round…
and finally got around to framing the beautiful punch needle that I got from Helen way back when. It has been sitting on my table in my studio waiting for the perfect piece of wool to be used as backing so that I could attach it to the barn wood frame Gord made for me. Well, I auditioned over and over again – thought about a braided edge but did not like the choice of wool strips and finally yesterday, I found the perfect piece of wool. This dates back probably 20+ years to when Gord had a client in Montreal whose company made coats and jackets. I used to buy end of rolls that I used for quilting and applique and hooking – this one was sample squares of beautiful British woollens and I found the perfect piece that incorporated gold, greyed out blues and browns – it went so well with the punch needle but also with the frame. Yeahhhhh – up on the wall it goes …and yes I do have this pattern for mini punch needle!
I love seeing everyone’s finished projects and I love how creatively you finish and display yours! I’m hooking like crazy to finish a Christmas present. I’ve managed to stitch a few pennies and I love doing it!
I seriously love the sunflower. And all those Christmas trees are darling.
Beautiful works Loretta, Sending blessings and prayers to you and everyone who loves you. Merry Christmas.
Are you kidding me?!?!
I am “gobsmacked” with these creations – and their creators…..
Love the joke about the tree lot…..just saying 🙂
