Friday Finish!


This week I decided to make another new pattern. I still need to finish both of them and make them into finished pieces, as well as make the patterns, so that will come next week.

This piece was done with a pattern I did in a cross stitch. I liked the elements and rearranged them to fit a punch needle piece. I really think this piece would look nicer with variegated threads, especially Valdani, but I use what I have.

I decided the pup should look like Bean, so I made mine black and white. Bean has more black, but I didn't want too much on the punched pup, so I just made similar markings on a couple of areas.

I still need to fix a few things and it will be antiqued a bit.



One of the reasons I have a hard time punching is that a certain fur ball wants attention most of the day and night. He is getting better and resting more, but I can't wait for the snow to melt so we can get out for more play and long walks.



And today he was being a bit bad, so he had a time out. He was not happy about that and decided to cover himself up with his blanket. I hope you all have a nice weekend.

He's a sweetheart!

It really does look like Bean! He looks so cute with his blanket - sounds like he might have cabin fever. :)

Great new design. Bean is a HOOT! How could you not go over and laugh and give him a huge hug? I know you aren't supposed to encourage bad behavior but it is hard not to do with kids and pups.

Love your stitchery and love the way you put Bean into it! I hope Bean got out of jail for good behaviour...My Rylie is still full of beans and he is going to be SIX years old this year! You named him well!!

Very cute! I hope your snow melts too. It's hard to be cooped up at home, regardless if you are a dog or human! lol

We all can't wait for Spring to arrive here, I feel like I'm being "bad" too (you're not the only one Bean)...LOL... Lovely work, I like it just how you made it.

Bean is such a character! Difficult to stay mad at him even when he does misbehave, right? ;-)
Great new pattern!

I feel for you and Bean. Same here with Bailey...we utilize the stairs slot to tucker him out.

Bean looks so sweet, I'm sure it was pretty easy to overlook his naughty behavior! ;)
