I started this punch needle piece (pattern by the Old Tattered Flag) while on vacation. I did not get much accomplished and am going to remove the background that I have done and replace it with a more tan floss. The gold is too similar to the gold in the motifs. Hopefully I will get more done while heading to Chicago this week. We are taking my grandson Jake to visit his cousins.
I finished the binding on my little horse rug (pattern by Winter Cottage) using the wonderful, chunky wool yarn sold by Ali Strebel. Now it just needs a final steaming and a label.
The most time consuming part of the binding on my camp rug is done. It shouldn't take too long to tack it down. I will be happy to finally have this rug done. The color is ALL wrong. In person the background is much more black!
Our last day in California we stopped at an antique shop in Santa Rosa. I adored this well loved guy, but was afraid I did not have room to bring him home. I couldn't stop thinking of him after I got home, so I had him shipped :) The velveteen bow will definitely go.
Jake did not want to go on the poker run with his dad's motorcycle club today, so we are hanging out and will soon head to The Emoji Movie. Then maybe time for a swim. (Him, not me.) It is a beautiful Sunday on Ohio's north coast.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
