Hello! I have been working on some orders lately, but I did manage to finish something new to offer. "Honey Girl" measures 6 1/2 inches tall by 7 inches wide. She is punched using DMC threads and Valdani pearl cotton threads. This pillow has been firmly stuffed with wool scraps and wool batting. Backed with gold hand dyed wool. I have stitched black wool yarn to the edge.
The design is by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I will have this pillow available on my Facebook page. Link above.
I am started another order now but will be back soon with some new items. Thanks so much and have a great weekend!

I love how this "Saluting Sunflowers" punch needle mat turned out. It measures 8 1/2 inches tall by 6 inches wide. Valdani pearl cotton thread and some DMC thread was used. It has been backed with a black striped wool. I have stitched an oatmeal colored hand dyed wool yarn to the edge with pearl cotton thread. I will be posting this for sale later on my Brush Creek Needlework page on Facebook.
I will not be selling on Etsy anymore. I really hate how they changed the way money is received. I wanted my money from sales to go directly into my paypal account, but they still deposited it in my bank account. And they didn't deposit it right away. They waited a few days. Which means, I couldn't access my money at all. Not to pay a bill or buy new thread, which is what I planned to do. Not cool!!! I will be selling directly from my Brush Creek Needlework page on Facebook from now on. Follow me and get notifications so you don't miss anything!
I am off to go work on some orders. Please have a great Thursday! Jen

I finished off "Wool Farm" the other day. I love how it turned out. I stitched a strip of wool to the edges. I will post it in my Etsy shop in a couple of days. Design by Brenda Gervais.
I also finished punching this "Americana Sheep" mat. I am a sucker for anything with sheep on it! Beautiful pattern by Tara Guernsey of Perfect Prim Punch. Love her patterns. Especially since you can just download them right away. You can find her Etsy shop here.
I will have these two and probably a little pillow available this coming week. So check back later. Enjoy the long weekend! Be safe!! Jen

I just wanted to share what I am working on today! This pattern is called "Wool Farm" by Brenda Gervais. I punched this using Valdani pearl cotton thread. I backed it with black striped wool. I just have to sew the black wool strip to the outside edges and it will be done! Love this pattern! Anything with sheep, really! I just loaded another pattern into the hoop today called, "Americana Sheep". I hope to share pictures of that this weekend.
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Jen

I will have two new punch needle mats listed in my Etsy shop tonight at 9pm Eastern. First up is the American Sampler you see above. It is designed by Polly Minick. I punched this using Valdani pearl cotton thread.
Next up is the Birds and Bees design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I also punched this one using Valdani pearl cotton. I braided hand dyed wool yarn and stitched it to the edges. New for me, but I love it!!! Expect to see more of this. It was fun!
I hope to have more time to blog and create now that school is almost done. I cyber school my daughter, which takes up a good chunk of my time. I love it, but I am probably more excited than her that we are gonna have a break!!!
I hope you have a great day and remember 9pm Eastern. Just click the Etsy button on the top right of this page.
Thank you, Jen
