 I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Today I ran to Hancock Fabrics to pick up 2 packs of threaders for my punch needle. I was also looking for pink flamingo ribbon for Zoe a hair bow. But, that's whole another story. I happen to cruise by the trims and this bright Kelly green pompom fringe jumped out at me. It is greener than this picture. Sort of a 70's Kelly green. I don't know what made me buy it! Maybe, I have been watching to much Dark Shadows with those turquoise colored candles and Kelly green velour drapes! I was even over in the fabrics feeling that velour. Someone help me!!!

They had their Butterick patterns for 1.99. I purchased this cute one. I bought it to use for the top. I have another pattern that I like for the ruffle pants. 

This is the fabric for Zoe's outfit. Pattern print for the top. Poke a dots for the pants with the print as a ruffle. I will put the rick rack on it too. I thought it would be cute for Fall. We're usually still in the 70's around Thanksgiving and Christmas some years. I've got to get to cutting out the patterns and sewing.

 I have this punch needle by Pineberry Lane all ready to go. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I also have the 4 pumpkin one by Pineberry Lane all ready to punch too.

Football season starts soon. I'm an Alabama Fan! My grandbabies live in an Auburn household... Nothing I can do about that!! My dear SIL, that I commented on in an earlier post made this for their door. I have to put a dowel through the top and get ribbons to make a bow and it will be ready for Game Day!
That's it for today.
Have a great afternoon, I will be punching away!
Till Later......

I love your purchases. The green might be great for a Christmas or St.Pat's Day project. Pretty fabric for your granddaughter's outfit. I have never tried punch needle but have been very tempted!

I LOVE pom pom fringe! I bet you will find just the right thing to use it on. Would be awesome on something for Halloween!
