I hadn’t been to the post office to check our mail since Thursday of last week so when I went yesterday, there was a card in our box indicating that there was a parcel inside waiting to be picked up. I couldn’t remember having ordered anything so whatever was there was going to be a surprise.
And surprised I was!
I very seldom enter giveaways but when Ranette offered a punch needle kit, I just couldn’t resist.
I have only done one punch needle project and I loved it, probably because it looked like a mini hooked rug. The punch needle project that Ranette was giving away was an all inclusive kit…the pattern, floss and fabric, so it was ‘good to go’.
I would have been happy with just that but Ranette really spoiled me by including a few extras…like the punch needle stand, a French General scissor case (Ranette too is addicted to collecting scissors), a set of four Fons and Porter chalk pencils and an antique reproduction silver thimble. Yikes!
Thank you sooooo much again, Ranette. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot. No, let me change that…I know I’ve hit the jackpot!
I think that’s going to be my next project after I finish this…
The third pocket of my BBD needle case is now completed which leaves only one more. Barring any distractions, it is my goal is to have the entire project done by the end of the weekend. It’s slow going for me because I’m a real newbie when it comes to x-stitching and this project was my inspiration to learn.
Samplers and anything with a vintage look just capture my ♥ and this design incorporates both. What I also♥ about this design is the fact that it is not totally symmetrical, making it so much more pleasing to the naked eye.
Having said that, time’s a-wasting and there’s work to be done.
