A couple of Things....

Howdy Folks!!!!! Happy Saturday!!!

Wanted to share with you a little needle punched pouch that I'll be listing
on ebay this aft...
it's only 4 1/2" long!...
(great for a little doll or maybe to hold buttons by your
sewing table)

...oh and here's a tip from me...

...when you're punching, and you notice that the thread is pulling a little,
check to make sure that your punch needle tip is SHARP.
I checked mine and it is as dull as a doorknob...so I had to replace the tip...
just makes things go easier, ya know?
I never thought I would have to change it,
but I guess I've worn this one out!


Here's a needle felted Heart charm that I did last night ~

I made it out of the prettiest, palest Blue wool roving...
it measures just 1 1/2" at it's widest point...
then I added a decorative head-pin and added it to the necklace that you see above..
I used some of my prettiest beads for this necklace!

(it's another Birthday gift to myself...I spoil myself !!)


my Sweet Friend Cindy (mountainhollow blog) and her even-sweeter
daughter stopped in today & gifted me with this loverly candle
and a little needle felted sheep that she made for me!...
CIndy took my nedlefelting class in January, didn't she do a great job?
I'll decorate my li'l studio with both of these gifts...
Thanks Cindy!
(and why are you reading this when you should be stitchin'???)

and another Cindy ( downonthefarm blog)
sent a kind note of Birthday wishes for me today!
Thanks so much Cinlyn!
(wish we live closer!!)
~And Lastly~

I've decided to change the hours for the shop back to only
Friday & Saturday, 10:00 ~ 3:00
If you'd like to visit the shop at another time,
email me at not4got@aol.com
to make an appointement...

okeedokee folks, I'm off to start another needle punch project...
they're calling for snow
(THAT is a four-letter-word and I don't WANT it!!!)
so a new project will keep me busy and warm...
What are you creating today???

OMGoodness! I love, love, love that punchneedle scissor purse. You could even put scissors in it too. :D

I have a sheep too! Not one made from needle that I know of, but I do have one that my mother gave to me. It belonged to her, but she knew I liked him and let me take him home.

I just finished a punchneedle project. I've had it punched for over a year, but late last night I finally mounted a piece of reproduction fabric onto a mat board and then mod podged the punchneedle to it and then framed it into a black with rusty, brass-like finished beading without glass. I am really happy with it and will post it on my blog later on tonight.
