Fall and Winter are upon us!

Now that August and September are behind us its time to move on to creating Winter and Christmas wares! 
The weather is finally feeling like Fall with cooler days settling in. 
Preparations for my annual Christmas Home show are under way which will be held December 9, 10, 11 this year.  I've decided to have it a month later which will give me more time to create. 
We have a new grandson due to arrive around the 13th so waiting anxiously to meet him.. its been 6 years since we had a baby in the family! 
Here are a few pictures of punch needle finishes this week and my latest hooked rug. 

I'm not sure what it is about old screen but it always catches my eye!  This little wooded screen made the perfect backing for a rug. 

For all my punching friends.... this is the latest pattern published in the Punch Needle and Primitive Stitchers Fall issue! Thread kits are availabe in my Etsy shop too!

Enjoy your day!!!

Primitive Handmades Mercantile Update tonight!

You will find many new Fall handmades on the PHM update tonight at 9pm Est.  Be sure to stop by!  Many items sell quickly!
This is what you will find on my page this month! 

I will be offering some of my mom's sweet old blue quilt pinkeeps this month! Just love the soft old fabric! 

I can take a few orders for these Pumpkin Jacks on the oil can! Send me an email to order.

I was so excited when I found this unique scoop in an antique store last weekend!  It makes the perfect little frame for the blue tulip punch needle.  Held in place with a magnet so not to destroy the value of the scoop!

I've also been collecting these old frying pans to create a series of punch needle design inserts! 
Up first.... a BOO Pumpkin for Fall!
Also, attached by magnet!

Still loving little chairs!  
I hooked a chair pad with a simple pumpkin for this sweet natural wood chair!

Enjoy the weekend ahead and stay cool!

I fell in love with this tiny little washboard in the antique shop! The perfect little Fall punch which is attached with velcor so you can switch it out!

And this little veggie slicer!  The punch is attached with a hanger so it can be switched out too!

How about a punched crow on a pumpkin mounted on a vintage oil can!  Love those things for bases!

Loving my newest sewing clamp! Pumpkin Jacks ready to travel to a new home!!

A Pumpkin Doll with a small ear of corn.... perfect colors of Fall.  I used a pattern by Lottie Laychak of Sweetpeas Primitives to create this little gem!

Stay cool and have a great evening!!!
