Happy Easter !


Happy Easter !!!



I finished this punch needle design. I gave it to my mom today.

I had a hard time finding an egg and then painting and speckling it to look kind of real. This was a punch needle design by With Thy Needle & Thread. Brenda is a great designer. I have some of her cross stitch charts. I love all the punch needle designs !
Hope everyone had a great Easter ! We went to my mom's. Joshua and Hannah looked for Easter eggs. Zoe watched all the fun from her walker. I didn't take my camera with me. Boy... Does that make me a bad grandma? I think Raeanne took hers and my mom had her old 35 MM camera. I will have to get some pictures from them. After my brother Trey and his family left. Josh took off his clothes and played with the water hose. It is Hot here today. We had a great meal. Ham, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, rolls, Corn On The Cob, Lemon Bars and Pie. I am stuffed.....
I did sew another finished stitching project together, But... I sewed it together Backwards.. LOL I know !!! I was not paying attention and the next thing I knew, I went to turn it right back out and Woooo. That does not look right. LOL So now I have been taking it back apart with a seam ripper. Cute Lady Bugs with big black rick-rack around it. I will post picture when it doesn't look backwards !! LOL
Happy Easter !!!

Happy belated Easter Michelle! I love your punchneedle, I made this one also, wasn't it a fun one?! I love Brenda's patterns, too. I have made several of her dolls in the past and I adore her style. Sorry to hear about your mishap, I almost did the same thing, but caught myself in the nick of time. Looking forward to seeing what you have done. Smiles....

Hahahaha I've sewn more things on backwards and upside down than I'd care to remember! It's so frustrating at the time, but now, a little while later, it's so, so funny! Happy Easter!
