Meet Poor Harold

Last year I started looking at punch needle.  I was at the Primitive Stitchers Society retreat and had Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm give me a quick tutorial on punch needle and fell in love with it.  I did a design by Lucy Beam (then she was Death by Thread),  I did a pineapple one and then designed one of my own.  I was at Michael's right after Halloween and found a great coffin shaped frame and decided to design a punch needle to go in it.  Here is what I came up with.  I call him Poor Harold.  I added the rusty tin bat and ghost to the frame.

Two new finishes

I finished two quick designs by The Primitive Acorns - Teresa Murgida

She is doing monthly designs and has released both May and June so far.  Here are my finishes.  

For May I added stitch counters and June ornamental pins.  Both I've made and have for the pins for sale.

Festive Greetings by Nikyscreations

Festive Greetings by Nikyscreations out of the Dec 2014 Just Cross Stitch mag. Finished Feb 22, 2016.  Haven't decided if I want to frame this or figure another finishing technique.

Samhain by The Primitive Hare

Love this designs by The Primitive Hare.  I decided not to stitch the stars. Filled in the eyes, nose and mouth with kreinik glow in the dark filament. I still need to figure out what to make this into.  I finished this back on Sept 20, 2016. 

Stitcher's Season Ornament by Notforgotten Farm

This was a Primitive Sticher's Society group exclusive from Lori Brechlin at Notforgotten Farm.

I wasn't 100% happy with the finish but it is still cute.  I used hand dyed pompom trim from Dames of the Needle  and hand dyed silk ribbon from Notforgotten Farm. This was finished on March 17th.

Vixen at Crow Creek

Vixen at Crow Creek by Pamela Dervaritis  I only stitched the center part of the design and made it into a pinkeep/scissor pocket pillow. Finished March 24th 2017
