New Needle Punch Projects

I am really enjoying my new pass time Needle Punching, I finished two projects that I have been working on. Both patterns are by "Notforgotten Farm". Last weekend my husband and I was
able to go spend a weekend in WV at our farmhouse, where I worked on my needle punch, read a book and relaxed by the fire. Ronnie took  pictures of me, but I didn't get any of him.
Today is his birthday, we are meeting the kids and grandkids for supper. I made him a homemade,
from scratch cake for his Birthday, it is the recipe off of the back of the Hershey Cocoa box,
it is such a wonderful cake and easy. He loves it! Happy Birthday Ronnie! Hope your Birthday is a special one!

Love the pitcher

    Your needlepunch projects are great. I have checked it out on the internet and went out and bought hoop needles and cloth.
    If I find I can to this, I think I will have another addiction in my life. A good addiction that is. :) My other addiction being genealogy.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
