Feeling a little Punchy & new Kitchen Cupboards

~ Good Saturday Morning Friends & Folk ~
Windy here today...& COLD!!!
the temperature difference from yesterday to today is almost 30 degrees,
....we topped 77 degrees yesterday and right now it is only 41 !!!!
seems like March is xcoming in like a Lamb for sure :)

I've been working on 4 new punch needle patterns,
and thought I would share with you all how I keep my floss (semi) organized:
this is a plastic container that I purchased from Michael's crafts store...
it was intended to hold photographs
(found it in the scrapbooking section, on clearance)

but it is PERFECT for holding my punch needle flosses & supplies!!
see how good they skeins fit??
I took a black sharpie and wrote the colors on the fronts of the little boxes inside ~
I tend to group my floss by colors, blacks, browns, reds, etc....

...I even have one named for just STUFF
this one holds threaders, pencils, needles and such.
and, this is where I like to punch...
on the sofa in the living room...
in front of the woodstove,
next to the windows and of course, in front of the TV!!!
see that little black ball of fur snuggled on the pillow?
that would be Suzy ~ my shadow...
...the view from my punching seat :

and here are the lower cupboards in my newly-remodeled kitchen!!

...they were plain unfinished oak purchased from Lowe's...
Peter painted them for me, then I did the distressing....

we really like how they finished up...
they look like they've been in this old farmhouse forever.
HAPPY HAPPY woohoo!!!
well friends, I'm off to scramble up some fresh eggs,
steep a cup of tea and head to out to the shop...
...have a beautiful late-February day!!!
blessings from the farm,
