Farewell 2019




First let me apologize for not posting for a couple months. I am still around just taking a break from punching. I’m teaching myself how to weave tapestries. Plus doing a little rug hooking in the interim. What fun! So much fun that time got away from me. 
Forgive me?

That being said, I would like to say goodbye to 2019!
What a year, many changes this year.....enough that my mental is suffering a bit. I am starting to settle in, hoping with the new year I can find my peace of mind again!

This year I am hoping, not a resolution mind you, no pressures....there is enough of that in our lives now a days, right? 
 I’d like to design & post one or two punch needle patterns a month. Take time to work on my rug hooking, post WIP pics & post the pattern (Let me know if you would like that)? Plus, find time for weaving, spinning and dying wool & yarn.  If you would like me to post pictures of my ventures, let me know your favorites....I’ll be glad to do so, Write a comments, here, on Facebook or Instagram. Sounds like I’ll be busy....lol.
Fiber, Fiber, Fiber...whooopppppie!


Bring it on 2020, looking forward to a new year,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Kate

Ravens Perch Revised



Good afternoon everyone,

Late Night Walk Embroidery Pattern



"Late Night Walk"
Embroidery Pattern

I am now adapting some of my Punch Needle designs to Embroidery....Yea!

Most are redesigned. They have the same feel, but are finished in places that are not included in the punch needle. For instance: the holly at the bottom of the punch is not complete, where here it is. The outer background and edge lines are removed. 
They are available as a Printed Pattern or Digital Download.
Just like the punch needle they are also available printed on Weavers cloth...which works beautifully as Embroidery fabric also.
Late night walk is color coded using DMC only. The model is worked using 2 strands, one strand in small places. Stitches are: Long & short, Satin stitch, Chain stitch, and french knots.

Loving the Embroidery & the detail it provides.
Have a wonderful day,
Kate
