Punch Needle work is what I have been up to

Punch Needle Angel back side that has been glued, dried, and carefully cut out
The front side of the Punch Needle Angel, just waiting for finishing touches :)
These are couple of pictures of my punch needle angel that I made the other day with Weeks Dye Works 3 strand floss. I just have to cut out the cardboard shape, glue to the back and then more finishing. I will share photos tomorrow, can't wait; but hubby has a long doc appointment in the morning so cant share until late in the day. check back then :)

Sampler Email arriving later today and new cross stitch design finished

"It Just Needs Love" counted cross stitch design and embroidery

Close-up of embroidery



finished with wool leaves

Happy morning,

I have been working on the letter for all those  that have signed up for "Serenity Harbor Sampler"
I finally have all of the floss listed with color names and fabric sizes figured out for you, and now I just need to add all the email addresses to a folder for email delivery :)
But this will have to be done this afternoon because I am on my way to Camp Wool to teach class for the wool/feather trees :). So make sure to check your emails and check spam in case it could go there.
I finished the design "It Just Needs Love" in cross stitch and along with the cross stitch pattern I have the line drawing so you can embroider it like I did. Included in this chart pack will be the finishing directions for the wool embroidered bag.
I am of to curl my hair :) until later, have a good day

"It Just Needs Love" and a big thank you :)

"It Just Needs Love" Punch needle design
 This is my Punch Needle design that is on Etsy and ready to go. Not everyone likes to punch needle so I made this design in Cross Stitch. I just finished it this morning and along with the cross stitch design will be the layout for the Embroidery. See my photo below, I am still working on it, and decided to make the blanket into a French Knot blanket. Almost done :)

Have a good night

just sent out newsletters with a small freebie and new Punch Needle design

"It Just Needs Love" Punch Needle Design
The newsletters have just gone out and they contained a small freebie for the Holidays. 
This is my new punch needle design. I used Weeks Dye Works and DMC. It will be available tomorrow on Etsy. I just finished this punch needle design with some wool tabs all around. It will include the line drawing for tracing and the templates for the tabs. I traced the tabs so that all you have to do is trace or copy the tabs onto freezer paper, iron onto your wool, cut them out and stitch away. So I traced all 30 tabs for you :) ,
One more thing that I have included is the sheet of paper that has the saying about the tree. It brings back my childhood memories, when times were so simple. The sheet also has 3 more Christmas sayings on it for you to choose from if you want to add this to your piece.  I burned mine around the edges with a candle and a dabbed with the wet sponge to stop it from burning to much. 
I am tired so off to bed early and you have a good night

I made a mistake :( Mister Turkey background color for Punch Needle


I was at Camp Wool today and a customer came in and was going to purchase Mister Turkey punch needle from the shop and was having a hard time matching the background color. So since I was there I offered to help. Matching O513 with the model was not working and then I thought OH NO what have I done. I opened another draw and found the correct color. It is O153. 
So I apologize if this has caused anyone confusion. When I have my next run of charts I will correct it.
But this is all I can do is post this and send out notices to shop owners.
Pass it on please
