Introducing a new Pattern!!!

Good Morning blogger friends!!! I'm happy to announce my newest pattern!
A mini oval design with 3 Coneflowers and a scalloped edge! You will receive instructions for creating the design in all three ways to include applique, needlepunch, stitchery and covering the box! The design is 2 3/4" by 3 3/4" and can be used for more than a paper mache box. It would make cute ornaments, framed mini's, pillows and I would love to see what you create with it!
I also made a Sheep design and sure hope the pattern is a little easier to finish up!

You can purchase the pattern with Instant Downloand on the left hand side of my blog!

Finished a needlepunch project!

I punched this months ago and it has been waiting patiently for me to finish it!!! It is my very first punched piece so I will be using it in my home! There are so many things you can do with these sweet little things and I couldn't decide what I wanted to do............well today I made a decision and mounted it on a board. I was busy all day painting and finishing up more laptop desks and candle shelves so while the paint was drying I ran to the shed and cut out the board and threw it on the paint table! Wish I could finish all projects that quickly!

I mounted it to the board with glue..........which I'm not a fan of glue at all......... not sure if it will stick or not!!! Any other suggestions on how to mount these on boards??? I really would appreciate some ideas!

Enjoy the rest of your day!!!

A new Summertime Mouse!

A new mouse for Summer holding a slice of watermelon! Still using the Havest Mouse pattern by Soft in the Head to create a mouse for every season! I'm a little late getting him posted but with this nice weather I've had lots of yard work to do and my hubby has been busy in the woodshop which means sanding and painting for me! Can't wait to show you what he has been creating!
A couple of weeks ago I made a trip up to see my mom and we went shopping for fabric! This is one of the pieces I purchased and used for the pinkeep...........I just love the old time look of it!

Happy Easter!

We couldn't ask for any better weather here in PA lately!! Yesterday was a perfect day to stain the prairie bonnets I stitched up last week. I strung a piece of twine from my patio umbrella to the tree to hang them to dry.

Everyone have a Blessed Easter!!!
