Too late for our 2015 Halloween


Jack's Sweet Shoppe: Olga's Tart! 

~ ~ ~

Didn't make it in time for 2015 Halloween.
So here it is now...Drum roll please,
cause it is adorable.

It is 4" round.
I almost went blind on the small 36 count linen.
Instead, I have managed to loose my hearing...NO JOKE.
I hate hearing aids and not hearing like I used to, 
but better that than my eyes... 
I am thankful for small blessings.

Thank you so much... Hope you will enjoy as much as I did creating it.  It was a 'FUN' project in spite of the 36 count linen.

Have an early HAPPY HALLOWEEN 

and Peace for all,





This is my first really big punch needle project...
I L O V E  the design &
 the size did not discourage me.
It is "Autumn Sampler" by Doreen Frost.
Had to purchase a 17" Morgan Hoop.
Can't really tell much from this picture
as is in its very early stages.
I do have all the black done.
 Now it will all be fill-in with the orange...
 easy peasy
Here's an idea that may be helpful to you Punchin' Ladies.
I set my Punch Needle, "Floss Keep Pot" 
(Pots made by me, available on my Etsy)
and placed it up on this wooden pedestal.
It has been a tremendous help keeping the floss clear 
 and out of my way when rotating and turning the hoop during the punching process.  
I just might use this method for all my punchin'.

Looks like I just may be punching more biggies too...
gots to put that 17" hoop to work.

Thanks for visiting...Enjoy the week
Peace for all
God Bless America & the Donald too...
Keep safe everyone
