Home for Christmas

Just to the left of my Fireplace. Is the storage for my flosses. A few years ago I invested in this antique piece. It was very expensive, but I have not regretted the purchase. My Santa punch has found a home on a textural piece of old tree swing from a friends house. Added memories. Thank you Deb!

Home for the Holiday

A touch of Christmas at Briar Cottage. Thought I would share little tidbits of my home these coming weeks. ENJOY, your Holiday Season! Kate

Olde Blue Eyes

Good evening, everyone
Hope you are staying safe and warm as the winter season sets in.
I don’t normally post in the evenings... 
I just couldn’t wait to introduce you to my newest punch needle design
“Olde Blue Eyes”
I do believe he has captured my heart, I hope he captures yours as well.

He measures: 7 1/4” high by 8 1/2” wide.
He comes color coded using DMC only.
It is a suggested 1, 2, & 3 strand punch.

 I suggest the eyes and glasses be punched using 1 & 2 strands. 
I punched it using 1 strand for more detail.
The rest is easily punched in 3 strand.

My preferred needles are CTR.
There are youtube videos to help you on your way using the CTR,
separating floss etc. here’s the link to my youtube channel:

Circle design

Circle design for the 8" Auburn hoops

8" Auburn hoop

beautifully designed awesome hoop.

Close up of pattern.

Good Monday morning, the sun is finally shining today, Whoot whoot!

I am still excited about these new Auburn frames: 

I did try and punch in it, but to be honest...I cannot punch nicely and comfortably in a hoop. So I very quickly switched to my frame. I guess it's all in what you get used to. 
It did seem to hold nicely. I think it's a wonderful alternative for finishing. (no sew right)
They come in many shapes and sizes.

Back to the punch.
This is a 8" diameter punch needle pattern. Color coded using DMC. It is a three strand punch, on weavers cloth using CTR 3 strand needle.
Fun all season punch!
Here's the link:

Enjoy the day hope the sun is shining for you,
