Finished Class Model & Polka Dot Galoshes....

Happy Monday!!!
here is the finished class project
...for this Saturday's Punch Needle Class ~

Blue Tulip Pinkeep

I added the ribbon to hang it from and love the look of it on the edge.

love that green.   and that blue.   together.

it's not large, only measures approx. 3" x 3 1/2" ~
small enough to finish during the class....
(oh yes you can.)
I have a couple of seats left for the class
... if you'd like to sign-up,
you can email me at not4got@aol.com
and you can see class info on my 'classes' link at the top of this blog.

hurry Spring ~
if you have your own punch needle and frame/hoop, then your class fee will be less
(read class description on classes page)
Come on out & have FUN with us :)
I received a package in the mail today from my sister Louisea in CT ~
she sent me these AWESOME polka dot galoshes as a 50th birthday gift!!!!

I love them.
are you ready for April Showers?
I am now!!!
oh yes, I am stylin' in these ankle-high beauties...
they are perfect Lou ~ you nailed me!
rain rain go-away...
...polka dots brighten my day!
yes, it's true.
I will turn 50 on February 28th.
I have no idea how that has happened ~ my friends & family know that I never consider age at all.
why bother? it is truly just a number that we use to keep track of years.
we are who we are because of our experiences in life, not our age.
Our souls are ageless... I still feel like I'm 18 and I know you all can relate.
I may 'mature', but I will never grow up!
Hoping the start of your week is a good one ~
Lori from

Happy Birthday Lori!
Turning 50 is great! . . . Just think of the view from the top O the hill!
Me? I'm on the other side . . . slowly going down, down, down . . . . ;-) But it's good on this side too!
Go have a party in those snazzy boots m'dear!!
and remember . . . always . . . . dance!


Penny said...

Really pretty punch needle! Lovely colors....
Your rain boots are great! What a wonderful present from your sister, and one I'm sure you'll get lots of use out of with spring just around the corner....
Happy Birthday, Lori!

Martha Doe said...

Hi lori!

You have made my day with the spring welcome of polka dot rain boots and the beautiful spring tulip pin keep!
wish I lived close enough for your classes!

I agree we are eternal and no need to worry about a number. I'm almost 74 and still feel like I did at 18 in my heart...the old body may feel a bit different...Ha Ha!

Happy Birthday!

NMK said...

Saundra said...

Oh Lori, happy birthday, but you're a youngster compared to me.

Pinkeep is beautiful and the ribbon gives it pizzaz. Cool polka dot boots, wearing those would brighten up any day.

I too love those colors together. I wish I lived closer...I would come to your class as I know nothing about punch needle and wool!!! Boots are great...they will keep your feet so dry. And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. You are right...I turn 60 in April and I still feel young (except when I have to get up off the floor). Sandi Durkee

Turning 50 and being in good health is the double celebration of having made it through half a century in good shape.

Celebrate and savor it!

Linda said...
