WHO LET THE CAT OUT

Who Let The Cat Out is one of the many designs that I've been reviewing.  It's a big job slugging through over 200 designs updating the patterns with new photography and covers.  In some cases the models need to be punched with new colors, framed, mounted on paddles or made into pillows.  Plus new designs are being drawn up!  Keep on punchin.

APPLE BASKET

Apple, pies, tarts, & dumplings...YUM YUM YUm.  They all start with a basket of perfect apples.  I always think of August as the Dog Days of Summer...so I like to pay homage to those lovable beasts. They are on my frame.  The Cats independant as ever have moved on to Fall.  Tubs is taking center stage surrounded by Pumpkins & Stars.  Keep on punchin.

AUGUST BONNET GIRL

This AUGUST BONNET GIRL is one of my favorite,  a little nudie fishing under a starry sky!
It's that time of year to gear up for the fall shows & events.  I can't wait.  It's my favorite time of year. But first, I'm going to the dogs with a couple of new designs plus I'm starting to punch WISE GUY, a fully punched stand up version of WISE OLD OWL...I have a little confession to make...I've always wanted to make jointed mohair Teddy Bears...even before Boyds hit the market.  I put that dream away for a while, but it surfaced after I bought a little Lotus sewing machine and watched a tutorial on how to make the very bear I've been longing to make.  Yes, I've ordered all the supplies and plan  to start sewing up and (punching up) a few Beasts.  In the mean time keep on punchin.

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER


Who can believe it's almost August?  I've got lots of ideas  dancing around in my head  for Fall and it's time to get them drawn up.  But before i do an all out assault on pumpkins, witches, etc, I'm going to spend a little time this month on Cats & Dogs.  Keep on punchin.

WISE OLD OWL aka Hooters

Here is the latest in my repurposing of my punch needle pin patterns.  Hooters has become a WISE OLD OWL.  I'm just getting started with this idea.  Stay tuned for more to come.  I'll get these little guys photographed, patterns drawn up, and posted www.etsy.com/shop/thecooperscottage tomorrow afternoon.  Keep on punchin.
