A special request!

I had a fun time designing and hooking this sentimental hooked rug for Andrea Owrey.  She wanted a hooked insert for your great grandmas old washboard with her name on it.

New offerings available on PHM tonight!

Happy Spring!
I'm quite excited about the PHM update this evening!
 Lots of colorful and Spring handmades will be available by a wonderful group of artists.  I did some hooking, punching and appliqueing! 
I've been scouring the antique shops for washboards to add a sweet something to the top! I look for the glass scrubbers and the metal ones with a nice patina.  Here are close ups of the two I'm offering on my page this month.  The little lingerie size has a needle punch design inspired by a Pennsylvania Dutch pen and watercolor art of a fraktur bird and flowers which is a pattern by Margaret Shaw.
 This is a design I put together with the inspiration of the bird with the heart wings and flowers in wool applique.  This design will be the free pattern that comes along with the PHM newsletter this month so be sure to sign up if haven't already done so! The newsletter lign up link can be found on the home page of PHM.
I used a pattern by Linda Evans of Grant Street Woolworks to create the sweet little chick hooked bag and the wool pillow.  She has a kit available to create the hooked pocket. If interested please contact  Linda on Facebook to purchase the kit. 
 The wool I used for this pillow is an antique black over-dyed piece.
Last but not least is the burlap pillow that I hooked a bunny pulling a chick in a cart!
Here is the direct link to my page to read more about each offering. While you are there take a look at all the pages! You won't be disappointed!

A Busy Winter!

WOW! Where to start! One wonderful insight into this cold and snowy Winter has been the online requests for my handmades! I'm so blessed to have had the opportunity to be a stay at home mom when my kids were little and now a stay at home wife....... just because I don't have time for a job outside of the home!  
I guess I will start with the new "treasures" I created for the February PHM updates! I did a bit of everything I love to do! I've been on the search for old washboards to add some hand mades to like you see here behind the pillow!   
Also, getting ready for the OFG Etsy Team's Spring Celebration which starts on Monday, February 24th!   You will be able to find all the artists new items by typing NBCOFG in the Etsy Search Bar! But remember they won't be added until Monday morning!
Here is what I've created so far! Still have needle punched piece to finish up before Monday!
Find these in my Etsy shop on Monday!

I've been working on lots of Spring Thyme Ornaments too!  Love these little bunnies.  Going to be putting some pin backs on them too!  They can be used for bowl fillers, ornaments and pins!
Guess that is it for now!!!  Off this computer to start some stitching!!!  Have a great day and weekend!!!
