Summer Leaf

I ended up finishing my punchneedle leaf into a needlebook. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I added a little brown bone ring on the end...just because:)

It has wool patches on the inside to hold needles.....

I'm also working on another punched piece.  A swirly heart and thinkingit will be nice as a ditty bag.  I just got some wonderful new fabrics and love mixing and matching them together.

I'll be back to show your the finish soon. 
Happy Creating, my friends.

A Little More Punching

Blues and greens were my colors of choice for this new piece. I drew this up yesterday and started punching.  It went pretty quick and I was finished this afternoon.
Loving a lazy Saturday to play with threads.

Finishing will be another day, but I'm thinking this would make a sweet little needlebook too.
Hopefully, it will work out the way I'm imagining it.

Finishing Day

Today I decided to work on a piece I stitched a few years ago and never got around to finishing......bad, bad me.  It seems when I have personal stitches, I can at times, just slip them away in a drawer for finishing another time.  Life is very busy and they sometimes get forgotten.
This piece has crept into my mind lately and I marked this day to finally get it done.
 I'm so glad I did :)

This is by the designer The Pinkeep called "Faded Past".  It came as a kit but I ended up using my  own fabrics for the inside and did my own thing.

I'm feeling accomplished that another piece of stitching is out of the drawer and all done.
I will enjoy using this sweet prim needleroll and displaying when not in use.

Happy stitching and smiles,

Playin' & Punchin'

Lots of playing around here the last few days with drawings, fabrics and threads. 
Not sure how this one will be finished, but I'm happy this little "Queen of Hearts" came out as I had hoped.

Hope your day is full of creativity!
