ONCE IN A BOO MOON is the first in the FALL FAVORITES I'll be posting while I'm working on new designs.  We've had a couple of beautiful days warm but not too humid.  It's what I call Top Down Days...doing errands with the Mini Cooper's top down and Rizzo riding shot gun.  Will get a photo to post.  ALL DRESSED UP is punched and I'm sewing it up into a pillow.  On the frame is Autumn Leaves.  Drawing up orders and then off to the post office.  Watercolor supplies are on their way.  Stay tuned and keep punchin!

ALL DRESSED UP on the Frame

All Dressed in progress on this rainy Sunday.  After 3 days of rain, I'm inspired to write...
Rainy Dark Day
The Sun Has Gone Away
...more to follow.  With the Dog Days of Summer upon us, I've just finished Butters Baby Yorkie and am thinking FALL!  ALL DRESSED UP is the first.  I have another new fall design, but you'll have to wait to see it in the Fall Issue of Punchneedle & primitive Stitcher!
 There will be a new Santa this year...just not ready to think about Christmas.  Want to dwell in the world of witches, goblins, & ghosts.  Keep on punchin.

Meet FRED the FOX honor of the dog days of summer, I'll be working on a few new breeds.  I hope to have tree filled with punch needle puppies for the Covered Bridge Studio Art Tour in October and for the Holiday Art Fair in December.  My news letter went out today.  If you aren't on the list please email and I'll put you for August.  Time to go out with the dogs for a little romp in the yard, before it gets to hot.  Keep on punchin.

GOOD MORNING BLOGG BUDDIES...I promise to be more more faithful to posting on this site.  It's been a wild ride these last few weeks, storms, heat, appliances  shorting out!  Not to mention no hot water for several days!  I've been busy with orders and working on new designs.  The cabin is 95% ready and hopefully the workmen will return.  Did I mention I need to add a new electrical circuit to my breaker box!  With the Dog Days of Summer upon us I'll be working on new patterns.  Keep on punchin.
