New Punchneedle: Best Friends

I remade an old piece for the booklet and finished it today.
I had called it Best Friends and just realized it is the name of a piece I worked on for Lynette;)
I guess Lynette and I think along the same lines when it comes to whimsey.

I put this one up for sale on ebay and it will be a five day auction.
I wanted to be able to have it sold and shipped in case we take off next weekend.
I am hoping to get up North and visit with my friend Lauri, Miz T and hit some of the quilt and antique stores.
You can see all the beautiful things that Lauri has made and where she lives on her blog to the left.

I did the patterns for the new book, but I still need to clean them up and make the pdf, so if not tomorrow, it will be ready by monday. The Black cast iron horse next to the piece was a gift from my father in law. He loved going to the flea market and found that for me. Sadly he passed years ago, but he was always good to me.

I love it! It's so sweet.
And I love the black horse standing next to that a horse shoe on his side?

Yes, it is an old piggy bank and he has a horseshoe on one side.

OK, I'm gonna say it, I'm gonna say what's on my mind! I want some framed pieces...some of us don't do little pillows; Hello!? LOL! Ok, now that I've put that behind me I'll say that it is gorgeous, and it would have looked awesome on a painted piece of wood...oops, did I just take another stab? LOL! I'm so bad, never mind me, I was just thinking out loud, LOL! You know i love your work, right???? XXO B=)

WoolenSails said...

LOL, I was thinking of that. I wasn't doing well with the framed prints and figured pillows will fit anywhere. I am thinking of doing another piece that will be longer and would make a perfect piece to sit on a piece of wood with squares nails beneath for a key rack or hanger.

The horse and dog are beautiful. You have chosen such great colors and I like the way you have antiqued the ppiece with walnut stain.
