Happy New Year!!

A couple of days ago I was searching through the bottom of my wardrobe when I came across my old knitting bag and lo and behold in the bottom were some Webster's needle punches. Let me explain, when I was first married, many moons ago, I made all my own clothes and knitted my own jumpers and then Emma came along and I saved a small fortune. When Emma got to 5 she suddenly became "picky" about what she wore and decided she wanted jumpers with appliqués on, hence I bought the needle punches. Having found them I resisted the urge to go and play with them, as that is fatal because I lose track of time. 

Steve has gone up to The Lakes today with Bramble, to go on the shoot, so I'm having a mini day. Out came the punch needles and embroidery hoop. I thought I better start with something simple as it's been a long time since I used them and after a few false starts I soon got into a rhythm Just under an hour later and I was nearly finished..

Can you tell what it is yet?

Another half hour and I had really got into my stride and it was finished! I can't tell you how therapeutic it is stabbing a needle in and out of a piece of material. If you had a bad day at work you'd make up pieces in no time :-) 

A quick and easy Bath mat.

I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year

See you later....
