Punch Needle

624 Sunday Social

Isn’t this pattern from “Threads That Bind” just the cutest thing? Love it, love it!  I am going to try and teach myself how to punch needle. Of course I am not starting with a design like this but hopefully I will be able to do this design someday! 

I ordered me a starter kit. The needle and threading it looks mighty intimidating to me, I hope I can do it!  Any pointers from you punchers out there?!

Wish me luck!

Sweet Annie’s Primitives

Rode over to Sweet Annie’s in Roca with Joan today. She had to pick up some books.  I liked this wire bill holder but didn’t want to put my bills in it, I mean come on, seriously, would all your bills fit in there?!  :-) Besides, I have more important things to fill it with like my Maggie books!

It held them perfectly!

I also picked up this little bird. I especially like his paper wings and tail!

My New Little Friend…

Here’s a little doll that my friend Paula at Red Door Primitives made. Isn’t she sweet?! I latched on to her at Paula’s Spring Open House. I think I shall name her Betsy.pcp 776

I also got this wall hanging at Red Door Primitives, a few years back.

Paula makes a lot of neat dolls and primitive items. It’s always hard not to take them all home with you!

New Cupboard

pcp 755

Yesterday Rusty and I went to Roca, Nebraska to Sweet Annies. It was our 23rd anniversary and it was a nice day and we decided to venture out. I asked him if he would go in and look around with me. He was making fun of me because I seemed to love everything I saw  and I told him well of course I do! Then I happened on to this cupboard. It was love at first sight and we all know what happens when it’s love at first sight, it knows your name, it speaks to your heart and that’s exactly what this piece did.  We loaded it in the pick up and brought it home. Rusty wanted to drive the pickup today instead of the car, do you think he had a premonition? :-)

Anyway, I love my simple primitive piece and it loves me!

I also love my husband and fortunately, he loves me!!  :-)

Country Sampler Home Tour

pcp 741

I’ve enjoyed the latest Country Sampler Home Tour Edition. There are a  lot of neat homes inside this issue. I really like how Andrea and Zach Felsher turned a two car garage into a country cottage. I would live there in a heartbeat!  If you haven’t seen this magazine you should go get a copy!

As I was walking by the table with my spools, I thought it was pretty how the sun was shining in the window so I took a picture.

It’s supposed to be in the 70’s next week. We haven’t had much of a winter this year. Hope that doesn’t mean we are in for a stormy spring!
