*NEW* Punchneedle Pattern ~

and a pleasant Sunday to you my Friends!

it is a bit drier today, (thank the stars) humidity-wise, but we need rainfall terribly...
there is a nice breeze and I can hear Mother Nature softly sighing, wishing this hot, dry Summer would come to an end....

So, as with most of you,
my thoughts are drifting off to Autumn...

and I'd like to share with you a new pattern for your amusement!

"Little Thief"
primitive punch needle pinkeep
on tin thread stand


a little grey squirrel has stolen an acorn for his winter larder....


his tail is dimensionally-punched for a great 3-d effect!!!
 hand-beaded edging for a folky look ~






Pinkeep is removeable too!




perfect to hold your pins & needles


see how high I punched his tail?


((please excuse the cat hairs!))

I will be listing this pattern in my ETSY shop today ~
I will be selling the paper pattern ONLY!
you can purchase the tin pinkeep/threadholder base from Ali at
www.alistrebeldesigns.com

Hope you like it!
I'll be designing more of these pinkeeps to fit this base, so you can switch them out seasonally too!


Blessings from the farm,
Lori

Hello- I looked on Ali's website but did not see the holder??

That is such a fun piece, reminds me of the silly squirrel in the ice age movies, lol. I am finishing a wedding pillow, then I can have fun trying your pumpkin piece. Always like things i can make as gifts for friends.

I love it, I really like the look of the beads and would like to try it on something. What kind of beads do you use. Love your work!

Having raised several sets of orphaned baby squirrels(the latest posted on my blog) I adore this pattern.
