~PUNCH NEEDLE~

Once Again I've Gotten My Punch Needle Out...
Am Punchin' Up Some New Patterns...
(Perhaps I Should Say Pattern...As Time Will Tell If I Do The Others That I've Drawn Out)
The One Shown Below...
I've Done In A Very Folk Arty Style...
Of Course The Colors Can Be Changed....
Amazin' How Usin' Different Colors...
Can Change The Entire Style Of A Piece...
 
It's Quite Large...
6" x 8.5"
I'm Not A Fan Of Punchin' Lit'l Designs...
 
Punched This Piece With...
Valdani Thread...

Below Is The Back Side...
Next Will Come The Distressin' Process...
That Can Be Quite Time Consumin'....
As I Like My Pieces To Look Quite Weathered...
And After Distressin'...
The Colors Will Take On An Entirely Different Look!

Haven't Decided Quite Yet....
How I'll Finish It Up...
Perhaps On A Embellished Piece Of Wood...
Or Chip Board....
Or A Canvas...
Or An Old Book Cover????
 
Could Just End Up Bein' Tossed Aside ....
Hidden Away And Forgotten...
Never Know How I'll Feel...
Mid Way Thru This Piece...
I Got Quite Bored...
Almost Trashed It..
Several Times..

This Is What Happens...
More Times Than Not...

 
'til next time...
be happy....

Lots Of Personal Stuff Goin' On In May...

Been Wantin' To Cut My Own Stencils...
Finally Got Started On That...


Havin' Fun Experimentin' With New Stuff...

I've Converted All The Patterns Into Epatterns That I Had Pulled Out...
Still Have About 100 I Could Do...But, I'm Not...

Been Buyin' Lots Of Craftin' Supplies...
Stuff I've Never Bought In The Past...
Can't Believe After Creatin' For 30 Years That I've Never Had These Things..

*Brayer
*Gesso
*Die Cut Machine
*Craft Knife
*Craft Tweezers
*Permanent Stamp Pad
*Xyron Adhesive Machine

Cleaned' Out The Attic This Past Winter...
Threw Tons Away...
Auctioned Some Off...
Still Have A Storage Unit Full Of Stuff...
Will Have A Super Cheap Sale In June...
Most Likely Give Lots Away...
Tired Of Messin' With Stuff I Don't Want...
But Others Might Find New & Fun...

Still Have No Idea Where I Want My Creatin' Journey To Go...

No Plan...Usually Is The Best Plan Tho....

~~YouTube~~

So Bored With Facebook....
I've Found A More Interesting Place...
For The Moment It Seems....
YouTube....
So Many Talented Folks...
So Much Inspiration....
So Much Sharing...
If Ya Are So Inclined...

My Pathetic Flower Beds Are Cryin' For Attention....
Guess I Should At Least Attempt To Clean 'em Out...
The Hot Kansas Sun & Wind....
Not A Good Pairing For Gardening...
Each Year I Plant A Lit'l Less...
It's A Battle I'm Tired Of Fightin'...

Photo From The Past...In Front Of Workshop...
Nothun Will Grow There Any Longer..
The Husbadn Said All The "CRAP" Hanging On The Siding
Was Bad For It....I've Since Sold All Of What You See....BLAH...

Loved The Miniature Lilac Bushes ...
This Was Many Years Ago....Since Then The Trees Have Grown Huge..
Killed All The Bushes Out...

Was Taken 11 Years Ago...
The Husband Killed Everything Out While Workin' On The House....
I Give Up....

I Now Just Rely On Bushes For Outside Decor...
Much Easier That Way...


A Few Flowers Here And There...
That's All I Care To Mess With These Days...
