Short Post ~ Big News!

Good Sunday Morning Friends & Folk!

another sunny one ~ yay!
 that means laundry on the line & housecleaning too…
a visit to cousin Charlie & then to market for groceries.

a nice pot roast supper and while it is cooking ~
I'll get back to my work 
punching ~ hooking ~ stitching
for the upcoming Virginia Rug Fest.

Here's a sweet little design that I hooked 
...while giving my poor hand a rest from all that punching

"Charlotte" the swine
{she does not appreciate the word pig, altho she says it is fine when used in polite company}

she's a small, quick hook ~ only measuring approx. 8" x 12"

…the pattern will be available soon :)



...and SPEAKING of patterns ~
do you all remember those little booklets that I used to offer?
those little booklets that were chock-full of my doodles and designs
for you to hook, punch or stitch?
{yes, them}

well, here's the BIG news:

theeeey're back!
BUT
they are now in larger, 8" x 10" format and spiral-bound…




the larger format allows you to simply trace the design 
….onto your weavers cloth for your punching-pleasure…

and the spiral-binding allows for ease of opening 
….for enlarging for your hooking-pleasure!!!!




here are a few peeks in to the pages of each book ~
{for © copyright purposes, they are partial photos & some-what blurred, but you get an idea}

from the "Spring Tyme" booklet

These were in publication {published by me} from ©2001 ~ 2008
….so they are oldies but goodies.

each booklet contains line drawings for you to hook, punch, stitch or wool appliqué…

...there are 8 different designs in each booklet, except for "Fraktur Folk" where there are more, smaller motifs for you to use to design your own masterpiece ;)

the "Herb Tyme" Booklet also contains some herbal folk lore, recipes & such.
These booklets shown above will be listed in our Etsy shop today :)

I have a few more that I need to format into this larger size, so look for them soon.
they are: "October Folk", "Just Plain Folk", "Christmas Tyme" & "Summertyme Stitcheries"

….I'm so happy to be offering them again ~ I think you'll be well-pleased with them!

Wishing you all a wonderfully creative day my friends!
