Well, not exactly. I mean, here it is, the middle of January…. not exactly the night before Christmas or anything like it. In fact, I completely missed Christmas and New Year’s, here, in the blog-o-sphere… ah me. However, it’s never too late to send warm wishes, so, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays!
Naomi wrote and asked me if I’d ever published the Valdani colors I used for Robin Leuschen’s, “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” punch needle. Do you remember that project? Here it is:
I never did share my palette with you, so just to set the record straight, this is the complete list:
jp6 (muddy pots) ~ Santa’s outfit
5 (ecru) ~ Santa’s beard and trim, stars, reindeer’s antlers
6 (natural) ~ berries on the vine
p4 (aged white) ~ vine, moon, 1822, Santa’s face
h205 (ancient gold) ~ reindeer, sleigh runners
p5 (tarnished gold) ~ words, reindeer collars and reins, sleigh
h212 (faded brown) ~ eyes
m1001 (vanilla sky) ~ background
The lamb’s tongues around the edges are the colors used in the design.
You can find Robin’s patterns by visiting her blog, Bird in the Hand Prims ~ click here. She has some fabulous new freebie patterns on her site right now!
My camera isn’t working….. well, it’s working, it’s just not WORKING. I mean, I can take pictures with it, but they come out very unsatisfactorily (which reminds me of the grades I used to get in High School :~>), so I don’t have any new photos to share. Time to shop!
Several of you have asked about how I age my pieces (thank you for your interest!). As soon as I get a new camera, I’ll try to put something together to show you!
Until then, wring every bit of enjoyment out of each possible moment!
