Christmas snowmen and Winner!

I was in the mood to make a punch needle, and this is a design that was made by Brenda Gervais for our punch needle group booklet. This was in 2007 and I finally got around to making it, lol. It was fun to do and now I am trying to decide what to do with it. I wanted to make it into a quilt, but not sure how that would look as a centerpiece and if I put it on a penny rug, it would be hard for the person, who is getting it, to display anything on it. So, maybe I will just make a pillow or a little hanging bag from it and make a penny rug with appliques.

I tried a close up, really makes the loops look lumpy, lol.


And now for the winner. I was dressed as a pumpkin head scarecrow, so most of you got it right. The winner of a free epattern is..... rebecca! Congratulations to Rebecca, send me an email with your choice of pattern.

Oh...I so love every design of Brenda's - she's gonna keep me in stitches and punches till the day I die....And you did her proud! Figuring out finishes is always the hardest part for me...you can only "frame" so much and have so many pillows....but know you'll figure out the perfect finale....Congratulations to Rebecca...and thanks for another fun giveaway Debbie!
