I really love this small Punch Needle pouch...
Just finished it and hung it on the side of my Pie Safe (running out of walls).

Very dark brown pumpkins with the rustic orange,
Will do the white one too, but not just now.
It is a PineBerry Lane Design
"The Old Pumpkin Patch".

LUV it!
BTW ... that's dried flax stuffed in the pouch, 
or at least that's what I have been told.
I think it gives it a nice finish.

a kwik post...

Just a kwick Post and picture with the Halloween Punch Needle ornies, plus some of the handmade pennys (by someone else) from a few years back.  We set it up in the kitchen on the island which to me is huge, 5' wide x 9' overall length (contains the sink and dishwasher plus a bar on opposite side). 
Decided to put it to some use for our holiday displays and camouflage the sink area which is usually not very presentable. 
We are down sizing (retired ) and I have very limited wall space ... otherwise I love the place...well, it is not primitive.

Here is an overall Look.  Sandy & I are HAPPY with it.  Needs more ornies and am working on that for next year.

EnJoy Trick or Treatin'...

Happy Halloween to all...

I have been busy...

I have not posted as my DELL needed a new screen.  
YUP, I thought it was dead so I bought another laptop.  Son suggested getting a screen off the internet.  Well that's just not for me cause I know nothing about what goes on inside my 'puter.  So I called a 'puter whiz kid and she got my DELL up and running again.  Had to send it out to get screen replaced.   I will keep the new one as a back up.  I cannot believe how helpless and lost I felt. Anyways, here are a few of the things that have been keeping me occupied during this traumatic time...
I completed another patriotic is positively wonderful
In Full Glory ~ Blackbird  Designs 
Reward of Merit Pinkeep Cross Stitch
I went on to create some punch needle 'Halloween" ornaments ... All OOAK... for Sandy's black feather tree, not yet set up. 
 We have some penny ornaments for it too.  
The ghost I made for her special request.
I am currently working on a
36 linen count, Olga's Tart.  Another design by Paulette Stewart, so verrry cute.  I knew I was a gluten for punishment as I have never done a 36 ct before...but, slowly I am getting there.
Oh yes, one more patriotic punch needle

Land of Liberty
a picture of my finished piece is available on my DELL and I do not know how to retrieve it from here, my new 'puter.

Gots to go, so for now...
Peace and Blessings to ALL,
