I haven’t had a tremendous amount of help this week….
Otis has been busy….
…Lilly’s been busy….
So, I’ve had to manage on my own. Finishing is always difficult for me… why? I don’t know. Is it the commitment? The responsibility? Whatever. Actually finishing a punch needle project, big or small, is always painful. However, I was able to get my Santa and my Snowman completed last week.
My Wynter Snowman features a freebie design from Bird in the Hand Primitives. He was punched on weavers cloth with my favorite Valdani Floss.
He balances on a vintage Shower/Tub porcelain knob and is backed with lovely wool.
He wobbles fore and aft, and side to side.
And, he wears a “snow”-covered skirt. woohoo!
Santa’s backed with wool. His rocker is covered in holiday homespun, while decorative antique clock bits adorn the ends. Santa, too, was punched with my Valdani favorites. I’m always astonished by the beauty of Valdani, the depth of color and the character Valdani brings to my projects ~ I never tire of using this exquisite floss!Santa carries a simple Christmas tree and jingles all the way.
Here comes Santa Claus!
What have you been working on? Have you had someone to lend a paw? Or, do you have to make all you decisions on your own, too?
happy weekend to you and yours ~ be warm, safe and content!
