Lots of new goodies!

Tonight I am brain dead, so if I make any mistakes writing, I am not editing;)
I finished a new punch today and started on a new project. I am doing a test punch for a quilter who will be making some of her designs into punch needle patterns, so stay tuned for news in the future.

Last week I got some wonderful goodies in the mail. My good friend Kelley was a bit behind on my birthday and Christmas this year, but as they say, good things come to those that wait.

The first surprise was not one, but three of her punched kitties. I love them all and each has a special place in the house now.



Then she sent me plaid and tan wools that I can dye and use in my other big rug. I love new wool:)
Then there is the beautiful prim basket that I can hang in my sewing room and if that was not enough, she filled it with prim homespuns. I am going to make a prim pieced quilt with them.



As if that was not enough, she sent me more fabrics to make quilts with. I am going to have to get moving on my quilting. To top it off, she sent me an Arnold's print works cat, I love them and this one is the large one, still in the package. I feel like I won the lottery. I think the cat fabric would make a neat tote bag for my supplies.



I also belong to a great group called USAPRIM on ebay. We did a swap this month, to chase the winter blues away. The theme was blue and these are the wonderful gifts that I received. More fabrics and wool, I am in heaven. I love the bluebird, it is now with my textile setting.

That Kelley-Girl is one of the most awesome box-senders, doncha think? You are so fortunate!!!

Hey...I was just looking at the kitty PN with the sewing machine...how did I miss that? WOW...you do such beautifully detailed work! I am in awe!

The kitty is actually more muted in person. The camera tends to pick up the details, so in this case it looked better;) It is one of those pieces that looks better from a distance, so you can see the details. I would like to make another one and change the colors to a lighter background. It was done in 6 strands mostly.

Boy did you receive a batch of goodies!! Love you punch needle kitties!! Oh how I would love to do that some day. I have one of those Arnold's print works cat that I won on ebay several years ago. It came in the bag too and I made it up in no time. Looking for another one. See if I can start a collection.
