Progress ~

As we continue progress on finishing the bathroom makeover project,
and between paint layers drying and such,
I am working on new offerings for Valentine's day ~

I will have 
3 New cross stitch designs
1 punch needle design
1 quilted design
(and hopefully)
1 hooked design...

along with a couple of new Wooden Items that Peter is working on in his Woodshop :)

here is what I've been up to while he has been working on the bathroom floor :

sewing together strips of calico fabrics for the quilted project

I am loving these colors ~
see that tiny little iron on my pressing board?
I got it at Joanns 1/2 price with a coupon ~ 
...it fits in the palm of my hand and is perfect for smaller pressing projects :)

a little blue, cream, brown, green & white...

and here is a peek at the punch  needle project...

if it looks familiar to you, 
it is because I designed and punched it earlier this year 
and didn't have time to release it when I wanted, Sooooo....

it is ready for this year!

tulips make me happy ~

very folky design motif and 
I'm loving the reds, greens and creams in this one too ~

tiny little hearts & dots

 a cheerful & quick to punch design, no?

pretty tomato reds

I had the pleasure of being with both Felicia and Joan yesterday ~
we went to lunch at a local restaurant for the holidays...
just the three of us, chatting, eating and of course, laughing :)))

we exchanged our gifts back at Joan's home ~
and let me just say, that Joan has the sweetest, coziest home I know of !
filled with her (many) collections of eclectic things.

I will be visiting her again soon with my camera,
and taking tons of photos of her home (and especially her SEWING ROOM!)
and will share them here for you all to 
drool over
be jealous of....
um ...

Til then,
Wishing you all a safe & happy
New Years' Eve ~

* Blessed be *

Thanks for the eye candy! I love the way you used the rusty orange and gray together on the punch needle-so prim yet modern!That really inspires me, as I am tired of the same old same old, ya know! Your bathroom looks wonderful-so much lighter!
