ABOUT TIME?


I'm here!! WOW - time flies doesn't it? I've been stitching and knitting but just haven't taken photo's and posted. I finally decided to get with it!!

Here are some fun punchneedle finishes. They are, however, in need of being finished-finished. This heart punch will be completed into sort of an angel and put on an oil can. The two birds are mine and Cherie's that need to be finished into the darling birds and poked onto the oil cans. Plus, I've been busy as a bunny with the rabbit inspired punches....so much so that I nearly wore out my wrist! Thank goodness for drugs and wrist braces!



Here's a Shepherd's Bush scissor fob...stitched but in need of finishing. I just need to get Elsie (my featherweight) out of her case and get her rev'd up!


And these socks...aren't they to die for? They're knit from Panda Silk...I love that yarn. The pattern is from 25 Favorite Socks.

And a La-D-Da finish......
And Ira Ray Crow from The Goode Huswife. Ida is delighted her DH will be joining her...she's been quite lonely....
I'm still stitching away on Charlotte Clayton. I'm to Adam and Eve. Only one flower pot and one huge cat left to stitch. When she's finished another huge order will be on it's way to Jill for framing.

Thanks for stopping by and to all the Mom's out there. Have a wonderful Mother's Day! Hugs to us ALL.

Cari..WOW! Love the punchneedle pieces! I always fall all over those when I see them, but never really took to the process. Yet everytime I see another lovely completed one, I think maybe I'll try it again. Did you love the process right away or did it take some time? The socks look great! Are those toe-up? And LOVE the LaDeDa piece and Ira! You've been busy!

Andrea said...

Oh my gosh, what wonderful finishes!! I love every single thing you've done! But oh! I want to see some pictures of your Charlotte Clayton :-) I pulled mine out of the stash the other day and worked on pulling threads for her. You just have to show some pics! Please, pretty please?!

Congrats on all of your wonderful finishes!

Glad to finally see a post from you Cari - I was beginning to get worried but now I know you are just keeping those hands busy with all kinds of wonderful things instead of pounding the keyboard. Love everything you showed us - I am always drawn to punch needle but NO NO - I will not venture there. Take care Melody

Hi
Just found your blog site and popped in take a look. Love all your latest stitches and you've really inspired me to start some punchneedle kits at the bottom of my stash pile!
Look forward to your next post.

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Your punch needle pieces are TDF!! I need to get my sister over here quick to take a look. She's not a stitcher, but she loves to punch her guts out. :) Beautiful, beautiful work!
