Winnings and needle punch

I was thrilled to find out that I was the winner of a giveaway that Debbie of "WoolenSales"
had. I was able to pick out a free epattern or epattern booklet. Since I am new to punch needle,
and don't have very many patterns, I decided to pick her Winter e-pattern book.
It is full of projects. So now I am all set with Winter patterns. Check out Debbie's blog,
she is very talented and offers patterns for sale.
 A few weeks ago I showed you my first needle punch, it was a snowman pattern by Doreen Frost.
I was so proud of it, but look back and think how terrible that it looks, he he
You could see alot of the Weaver's cloth showing, so I decided to try it again. It isn't perfect, but
I can tell with each needle punch that I do I am improving. I will have to say, I like this one.

  2. Hi there, I just love your new punch needle snowman. :)

    I have bought supplies to do this and I have watched lots of the youtube videos including some of the ones you mentioned to me.

    I am a little nervous to start I think. lol The stores here have stopped stocking needle punch patterns or books. So I guess I will try to make my own pattern. I will start with something real small first I think. Just to see if I am going to be able to do it. Gosh! I am sounding like such a chicken. lol

    Anyway this is too long. :) Can't wait to see your new projects. I love EVERYTHING winter.

    Take care, Janet W

  7. The snowman looks lovely to me. I've never tried needle punching. Is it hard to do?

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.
