Bewitching combines some of my favorites; snowgirls and witches!.  I'm thinking they are not mutually exclusive and this pattern proves it.  As soon as I get this paddle painted up, I'll get the kits ready to go.  Check my etsy shop in the next couple of weeks.  Keep on punchin.

It's the Woolies collection or at least the start of it.  Valdani is now offering the most beautiful wool for Australia in black and cream.  I'm working on a mini collection for them for the Quilt Show in Huston, Texas.  Can't wait to start the stitching and embellishments! Got some new punchneedle pumpkins on the drawing board!  Keep on punchin.

Happy 4th of July...I wanted to give you all a peek at the JULY BONNET GIRL the punching is done, and she'll be off to the framer next week!  Home today with a long list of patterns to draw up and kits to put together.  I'll be working with a background of patriotic songs and marches playing on my ipod!  There will be a picnic supper and a fireworks tonight in the park downtown!  Love this day when we celebrate our FREEDOM.  Keep on punchin.

It's been another crazy week with plein aire, the strawberry fest, artists reception and a fabulous new exhibit at the WMQFA.  More about that later.  I've finally got a July Bonnet Girl in the works.  As soon as she's done, it's Halloween here I come.  I'll be in my studio this afternoon 2-4, and Thursday 1-4, and again on  Saturday 12-4.  My newsletter, Something to Crow About will be ready on Friday.  If any of you out there would like to get it, please send your e-mail to cooperage@wi.rr.com   Keep on punchin!
