MORNING GLORIES...had a little rain over the weekend, but we were spared the severe weather!  In the 50's and rain this afternoon.  Ivy is learning how to play frisbee... we'll have to play between the rain drops today.  House breaking continues.  Rizzo likes to people watch.  He's our protector. Punching on a historic property in downtown Cedarburg..stay tuned for a sneak peak.  Have another sheep in the works DAISY.  Will post a progress photo soon.  Keep on punchin.

Good morning Blogg Buddies...another whirl wind week...Id like to say I'm making progress with IVY, but only a little.  As long as I stay on the clock to take her out, it works.  However she has not connected the fact when she needs to go to run to the door or give me some sign!  She just squats where ever she likes!  I was able to finish up the new TULIP patterns.  Apricot Tulips is listed on Etsy and as soon as I get the threads for the thread kits, I'll be listing White Tulips!  Have a wonderful weekend.  Keep on punchin

GOOD MORNING BLOG BUDDIES...here's a sneak preview of tomorrows Sale.  These sweet little Seed Packet Pillows approximately 5" x 5.75" priced at $45.00 each will be on sale tomorrow for $30.00 each.  A very busy day for me and the pups today.  Ivy gets her last round of shots, then she and Rizzo are off to the groomer.  While they're getting bathed. I'm getting my teeth cleaned, hair cut, oil changed, and car washed!  Then home to sew Apricot Tulips into a pillow.  Stay tuned and Keep on punchin

GOOD MORNING Blog Buddies... this Apricot Tulip in my garden inspired my new Wait for it...APRICOT TULIPS  design!   White Tulips are next up.  Still struggling with Ivy and potty training.  She doesn't get the difference between inside & outside.  So when she's not in the crate, she's tied to my apron strings literally.  She is adorable and smart as whip otherwise, plays fetch, will get the toy out of the basket you ask her too.  Hopefully in time..Keep on punchin.

Here's just a peek at IVY aka Couch Walker.  She is a character and naughty.  She is still NOT getting the hang of potty training!  We are on the clock so I'm the one being trained.
LAVENDER is posted and doing very well.  I'm working on TULIPS and BITTERSWEET.
Keep on punchin.

GARDEN GRETA on the frame

GOOD MORNING...met Garden Greta.  Looks like another busy day...Working with Ivy, I'm sure she will get the hang of it soon.  She is such a cutie, but naughty.  She's into everything!  I'll be punching and filling orders while she's sleeping!  Making a batch of Ham & Bean Soup in my Ninja Foodie.  I love it, it's like I'm 8 years old again with my first Easy Bake Oven.  Keep on punchin.

While I'm working on a few new designs, I'll be posting my Nursery Rhyme series... with lots of babies being born at this time of year, including a royal baby boy; I though I'd post this series.  Paln to get more pictures of Rizzo & Ivy up too.  For those of you who are familiar with Cedarburg will know we are known for our Historic Homes and Buildings.  I try to punch up one of these structures every year and this year I'm working on the Kuhefuss House.  I will keep you updated.  Garden Gertie is in progress and will have that up soon.  Expecting a piece of Iris wool from Weeks Dye Works any day to complete Lavender.  Hope to have her ready to post and patterns finished by end of week!  However, my main focus is IVY and potty training.  We are on the every hour out clock.  She cannot be trusted to be out of my site!  Keeps me on my toes...Keep on punchin.

Another dark and drizzy day!  Perfect for punching and/or cleaning the upstairs bathroom!  I'm afraid it's a must today...  Rizzo is curled up in his favorite chair and Ivy's asleep in her crate. I'm afraid house braking is still a work in progress!  Lavender is punched and waiting for wool to arrive for pillow.  I've started Bittersweet (same sheep) knee deep in beaches of bittersweet, will need more thread to finish.  I'll be posting in progress and final photos as soon as I'm finished.  Up to clean the bathroom while puppies sleep.  Keep on punchin.
