This week I got a surprise from a friend, a box of goodies and lots of patterns to work on. I was in the mood to make something new and the punch needle patterns were just what I needed. I made up two and finished this one today.
I plan on leaving it flat and attaching it to a wood board with nail pegs, to hang the keys on, at the front door area. It is a pattern by Primitive Spirits. I was lazy and took phone photos, so not the best, but I will take a better one when I finish it off.
With the holiday weekend, we didn't get out, way too many people headed to the beach and way too many accidents. It was a good weekend to get our backsplash in. I didn't want to do anything too permanent since we plan on adding an island in the future and also nicer counter tops, for now we just got stock counters which Bill was able to put in himself. The backsplash is fake tin, and easy to put it. They come in large squares so fit our area perfectly and the ones we had to size, cut with a razor knife and we put them on with heavy, double backed rug tape. So much better than the ugly walls and when we are ready to redo the kitchen, easy to pull off.
I went with tin, the copper was darker and a bit busy, and our kitchen is small, so this was lighter. I hope you all have a wonderful fourth of July. Our neighbors are shooting off fireworks and poor Bean is hiding under the table.
