Punchin' 'N Hookin'

Happy 2017 to ALL
with Blessings & Peace as always.
* * *
I really did not have much 'Play time' during the 
Christmas Holidays.
'WELCOME' punch needle is finished but now must work on giving the the frame a faux finish...
am still undecided about which one to do.
The design was laced to a foam core backing 
which fits nicely into this frame.
As I was about to finish this piece I conveniently ran out of floss for the background...which happened to be DMC, Ecru that I coffee stained with Chuck's left over coffee some time ago. 
Not having anymore of that particular color of floss in my stash meant trekking to HL (8 miles one way).  
The real challenge was getting the stain to match.  
There is a subtle difference. 
It's 'Primitive', this is my justification.

As soon as the Holiday dust settles, I'll be painting the frame.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year too.

Gots to paint that frame and then do some hookin'...

Gonna keep out of the kitchen for a while...

Hi Barb,
I think it is just fabulous and really has a hand dyed look, which is just perfect!! Looking forward to seeing it framed!!! I still need to finish up a couple of mine, too, and also to pull out my hook!! It has been WAAAAAAAAAY TOO Long!!!!!!!
Enjoy some "ME" time this week!!
Happy New Year and Big Heart Hugs~

I love it Barb!! The variation adds a wonderful dimension if you ask me...and I certainly cannot distinguish between your batches. I admire that you take such pains with your framing... I have always been reluctant and opt for easier framing options LOL... (I have a LOT of tucks and hornbooks....) ;o) Smiles & Happy New Year Hugs ~ Robin
