Friday Finish!

This week I worked on a  new punch needle piece. My friend gave me a few from her old stash and she knows I love patterns by Brenda Gervais of Country Stitches. The bunny was a perfect one to do for spring.

The original pattern is set on a wooden board, but I wanted to do something different and make mine into a pocket. I like how it came out and it looks nice hanging from my peg rack. I added a thicker piece of wool yarn around the edge and used that as the hanger.

I also finished the ties on my quilt, now I just need to trim the edges and add binding. The triangles are done with hand stitching and then I used the ties along the middle of the strips. 

You may remember the post were I showed you my messy rooms. Well, now I am thinking it would make more sense and be more efficient to change the rooms. I hate to move my beach room, which was my daughter's room, but it is longer and I think it will hold the machines and table much better than the more square room. So, I am measuring and thinking it out and if I do that, the beach room will be upstairs and become a guest room and the small room will be my room to relax and create in, as well as a play area for the kids. I can get floor couch chairs that make into beds so they will also have a place to sleep when they visit. You can see the rooms on this post, what do you think?

It looks like a cold weekend, so no walks, but hopefully we can get out and enjoy some time outside for short periods. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Your bunny pocket is adorable - I love it!!
Your plans for changing the rooms around makes good sense although a lot of work.
Too bad the weather won't let you get out and about this weekend.

Both the NP and quilt are wonderful. Good luck with your room decision ~ I'd go where it would be more convenient and cozy.

Love your bunny pouch. I think it works better as you have used the design as to use it on a wood cutting board.
I like the windows for daylight in your current sewing room. Would you have good lighting in the other room if you switched?

I Love your bunny pocket finish! Some day I would love to get back to some punch needle! Love your quilt too! It's fun to change things around isn't it? One change leads to another it seems! Your rooms look so nice with all the windows and natural light! And so organized!! I hope you show us pics of what you decide to do! I need some inspiration to get going on some changes here! Even though Spring is weeks away here I have the urge to get on with some home projects!

Your rabbit pocket is wonderful Debbie! I love the colours of your flying gees.e

We've had snow falling for more than 24 hours, I was hoping to go over to the west side of Vancouver today about a forty five minute drive but I think a walk outside may be my only outdoor adventure today!

Enjoy your cpday in a creative way.

I really love that bunny pocket. As to rooms, your plan sounds practical. It is good to be able to think it all through before making changes you might not like in the end.

That bunny is too cute, great idea to make a pocket!!! Love the colors in your quilt, too. As far as rooms go, do what makes most sense for how you use them - nothing will be set in stone, you can always change them later!
