When you are looking all over the office for your little doggie…and can’t find her. Don’t forget to look under the Christmas Tree!!! My heart is full of love for this little elder dog of mine!!

10 year old Thalia making neck warmers with Aunt Leslie!!
There are some very simple neck warmer patterns out there. This one I found on line https://www.applegreencottage.com/2017/02/neck-warmer-free-pattern-cowl-scarf.html
and it's so easy that my 10 year old niece made 7 of them in one evening. They are being wrapped for Christmas gifts!! There are several different choices of fleece fabrics to choose from, so we may just have to make more. These make wonderful gifts for family, friends and those in need of warm items in the winter months. Enjoy!!!

I was asked to make this very special rug punched wool yarn stocking for a co-worker. Her daughter is giving it as a Christmas gift to a dear friend. What fun to do...although the cuff was a bit thick and hard to sew, it came out quite nice.
As I worked on the above pet stocking, I was lucky enough to have the supervision of my little nugget, Chesney!!

I love this ornament, so much! The anchor design itself is by Stacy Nash. The pattern was actually for a pinkeep, but I made it into an ornament instead. I love the hand dyed blue linen I purchased in South Carolina (while on a trip doing volunteer hospice work) and the variegated thread colors by The Gentle Art. It all came together so nicely. I purchased the wooden snowflake ornament on Etsy, and used that for my backing.

This wool hooked rug was started by Dirk Wygmans, but finished by Peg Wygmans. Both did a beautiful job on the start and completion of this rug. I'm the lucky daughter who received this as one of the most wonderful Christmas gifts ever received.

A lesson on creating your own Punch Needle pattern:
Creating your own design can be tricky at times, especially when there are words and numbers involved. The pattern side is the BACK SIDE of your finished piece. Therefore, when using words and numbers, you need to remember that your finished piece will be a mirror image of what your pattern is. I drew up my own pattern, forgetting that my finished piece would be a mirror image. As you can see by the pictures, I wrote HALLOWEEN the correct way…or so I thought. It was the wrong way since it would be the opposite on the FRONT SIDE.
This my friends, is actually how it should look!! Notice how NEEWOLLAH is now written on the pattern. When you flip over your finished piece, the wording will now be correct.
Happy Punching and thanks for stopping by.

My 9 year old niece, Thalia, wanted to create her very own punch needle design. She decided that Chesney, my 13 year old Chihuahua, would make a great model. Thalia drew up her design and together we created this wonderful little pillow. I'm one very proud aunt!! xo
