A few new things...


Henry, my assistant photographer.....


New squirrel with acorn....



Kitty with sweater...


Wooly bugs...


My first attempt at punch needle....took me awhile to get the hang of it...still need to do more.
I used two different perle cotton 8 Valdani varigated threads that I had on hand. Sort of an experiment. I think I need to use more contrasting colors as the center heart doesn't show up very well. I am hoping to make some fun little designs for pins. The book below has some good instructions and photos to get you started.





Just had to show you our eggplant! I put the eyes on for his photo and sent a copy to our son in college!


Newest rabbit that I finished hooking last night. When I finished and took it outside to photograph I noticed that I had hooked the eye, nose and mouth in dark navy blue and had to take out the strips and re-hook.
That's what happens when you hook late at night!

It is so helpful to have an assistant! I have been playing around with punch needle also and finding there is a learning curve. I love your little kitty with her fall sweater.
