New Punch Needle Pattern!

I finally finished my piece and the pattern is ready. I made a few changes and finished it off with a white cording. The finished piece is 6 1/2 x 4 1/2. I think this would make a great gift idea for an ocean lover or a church lover. I may do it in an art quilt with a saying, love redoing designs in different ways.

I had Bill check out my DIL's Facebook page, I still am not on her list, so I have not seen any photos of Nick in months. There were a few and here is one with Nick and the baby, along with his cousins. A few more weeks and they should be coming home, can't wait to see them.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend. Bill told me he can take off a couple of extra days, now that the job is finished. But, all of the camps are full and I cannot imagine how crazy they would be on the last weekend of summer. It is also cooling down, so I told him not to take off time now and wait till next week, so hopefully we can get out and have some fun, after the holiday crowds have gone home.

He is getting so big! It will be good to get your hands on the new baby.
Love your new pattern if I didn't have so much on my plate I would try it.
I just haven't hooked much so busy this working full time is getting very old.

Don't blame you for not wanting to travel during the holiday. Sadly even today (Thursday 9/1) people will be taking off to head to the beach and I'll be caught in that heavy traffic getting to my eye appointment. What is going to be worse is driving home with dilated eyes. But at least I'll be going in the opposite direction then.

Your light house punch needle piece turned out very good. I especially like the sky colors.

Love the changes to your piece, it looks so serene

I agree long weekend travel is for the birds.

I'm sure Nick can't wai to be back home to show off his little brother to you and your husband and his dad!

How unkind of your DIL. I hope they come home soon. I know what joy Nick brings you.
Happy Labor Day :)

Your punch needle is lovely and clear now iwth the changes. Nick looks well and happy. It is a pity you don't get to see the pictures - grandparents are important... but cuddles will be had soon
