Wool Farm

     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

New listings on Etsy!!

     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

Mrs. Peabody!

     Just listed Mrs. Peabody here on Etsy!  I just loved how she turned out.  Design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm.  I really enjoyed making this one.  I used all of the colors suggested.
     She sold before I could even finish typing this post.  I am making a huge punch needle mat for myself.  It is an antique adaptation by The Old Tattered Flag.  I changed all of the colors to suit my decor.  I will post pictures soon!

Horse on the Hill

     I hope everyone's Valentine's Day went well!  We had a nice quiet evening at home.  Me and my hubby went out Sunday afternoon for lunch.  That was our celebration.  We beat the crowds that way!

     I started working on a new punch needle project.  "Horse on the Hill" by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm.  I am using most of the suggested colors.  Some minor changes.  I love the color in this one.  Me and my daughter are also finishing up a plant cell project for her Science class as well.  Helping her with cyber school is like being in 6th grade all over again!  Ugh!

     I am off to punch some more while cooking dinner.  Have a great evening and stay warm!

New Blog!

     I am starting a new blog.  It will pretty much just be about punch needle.  That is my obsession at the moment.  I could truly do this for hours at a time, while binge watching something on Netflix of course.  I only get time for this after home schooling my daughter for the day.  I do not have an outside job.  Just taking care of my family and cats.  I ended my previous blog a few months ago because I was having trouble juggling the home school thing and all the other stuff.  We seem to have figured it all out and I am happy to say my daughter is doing much better now.  Even made the honor roll!!!  My other two children are grown and in their early 20's, but of course they still need me occasionally.  I also changed the name of this new blog to Brush Creek Needlework.  It was Brush Creek Creations before.  I pretty much always have a needle in my hand and I can see Brush Creek from the back of my house, looking out the window next to my desk or washing dishes at the kitchen sink.  So that name works pretty well, I think.  I hope I am better at keeping up with this blog.  I really enjoy reading many of my artist friends posts on Facebook and Instagram as well.  I will stick a link to some of my social media pages on this page somewhere.

I just finished this "Home" punch needle mat above.  I have it listed on Etsy now.  It is a design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm.  I absolutely love her designs, so you will be seeing a lot of them.

Well, I am off for today.  I will be back soon.  Have a good Friday evening!  Jen
