I’m excited to be sharing space with 38 plus awesome folks at the Early Homestead Show in 8 days. Vendors are coming from Tennessee, Ohio, Wisconsin and New York with antiques and primitives and vintage lighting. Maybe I’ll see you there.
My preparations are almost complete, although I never seem to stop punching on something. Here are a few pieces I’ve done from Polly Minick’s book ‘American Summer.’ I especially love the whale. I made it into a little candle mat and finished it by just folding the backing over the front and leaving some rough edges. This was done before I discovered Valdani and I got the effect by blending two DMC blues for the water.
Autumn on Acorn Farm is a pattern by Doreen Frost. This was fun to punch. The white background is definitely not my style, but it works perfectly on this. I love the detail on the old lady.
I finished the punching on Lori Brechlin’s Folky Bird. It exists as one more item needing that final finish. I will sew a backing on it and crochet a string to use for hanging.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit.
