This is the wacky doodle needle punch I designed for our launch. It's Mr. Wickenbaum's Tombstone!!!! It's listed on ebay right now along with my wonderful new banner!!!! If you'd like to go see,you can just click on the ebay box over there at the right.
Better get to work on the 50 or so things that I have goin'!!!! Hmmm,maybe one will get finished!!!!!
I thought I'd try posting this here on my blog and hopefully some of you will stop in and see it!!!!!
I'm the leader of PRHG which is Primitive Rug Hooking Group. Friday I shut the group down to do a little maintenance on the board. Then I reopened it & began the task of re-inviting the members. Well some of you members are apparently not getting your invites. I dunno WHERE they're going!!!! Possibly your junk mail?????????
So what some members have done is clicked on the JOIN GROUP box and then it comes directly to me and I can click you in. PRHG MEMBERS if you didn't receive your invites (i've sent 2-3 of them) then PLEASE click on the JOIN GROUP box and I'll get you back in.
TO NON PRHG MEMBERS: At this time we are not accepting new members,we're full. It has nothing to do with you or your work,it's just that we're full. I'm sorry,but the reason the JOIN GROUP box is there is because I have to leave the door open till all the members have gotten back in.
I Thought I'd show you the difference with the same pattern. I decided to hook my design. If you notice I did the flowers penny rug style because I didn't really like the way the petals looked hooked,not really enough room for for the wool worms to fit with enough defination of the petals. But you can see that Marte was able to punch them and get the definition. I've already sold mine on ebay.
My Good Buddy Marte did a needle punch of one of my original designs!!!!! Martie is a super duper expert puncher and she punched my design exactly as I drew it and it turned out FANTASTIC!!!!! She has it listed on ebay right now!!!! Type BLESTB or PRHG in your search bar and you'll find it!!!!
For the whole month of June our BLESTB eBay group has a theme for our auctions on eBay of AMERICANA PINCUSHIONS or PINKEEPS. I think it's a generational thing. I've always called them pincushions. I even have a collection of vintage pincushions. I'm not really sure when they started to be called pinkeeps. When ya think about it though it makes sense. You do KEEP your pins & needles in them!!!
Anyhoo I just listed the one above on eBay last nite. It's my own design that I stitched with just a basic idea of ABC in my head. Then it just evolved in kinda a freehand stitchin' way,much the same way that I design my hooked rugs and actually most everything I make.
Thanks Bunches For Stoppin' in. I appreciate it!!!!!!
This basket is part of my liquidating "My Stuff" sales!!!! I got it from QVC. It has a plastic liner in it so that you could put a real potted plant in it with a saucer. OR put an arrangemant of drieds or silks in it. HURRY HURRY click on my ebay link at the right & run to see it!!!!!!!!
