A few finished projects

Good morning my friends!I hope that your day is going well.It is so hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us.You sure would not know it with the weather we are having here today,the temperature is supposed to hit 68 degrees!  Yep,you read that right ,unbelievable.  I plan on enjoying the warmer temps by getting outside a little later on.I have a sinus thingy happening today and it's trying to make my life miserable but I am still going to enjoy the day.

I have finished a few more needle punch projects and would like to share them with you all.Please forgive my poor photography skills.I really should try reading the instructions that came with the camera ,probably would make more of an effort if the print were larger. 

The first one... I call " Frosty Fun" ,it is my design and I did over dye thread for  some of it too.It is roughly 7 inches wide and 10 inches long.I have not mounted it to anything just yet.
 This pic shows the truer color of the piece.

The next one is" A Partridge in A Pear Tree" ,again it is my design and I over dyed thread for it.The needle punch piece is 7inches wide and 13 inches long.I stitched this piece to a black wool pear that I made out of recycled wool.The wool pear is around 10 inches wide and 16 inches tall not counting the stem.

And my last one is one that I just finished punching yesterday.I cut ,sanded and painted the wood piece this morning.I haven't came up with a name for this one yet.LOL! It is my design with more over dyed thread. 
I can't remember where I got the graphic for the tag ,I am sorry about that ,if it is yours please let me know and I will give you the much deserved credit for it.

Yesterday I received  a sweet package in the mail ,it tickled me pink!So I would like to send a big thank you out to Linda Claus ! Yes ,she has been spreading her cheer  all the way to Kentucky! Just look at the sweet pillow tuck she made and sent me! It had a beautiful  Christmas card with it too.

Thank you Linda !It really made my day , you sure know how to make a person feel loved! Hugs to you!If you haven't been to Linda's blog then click here to check it out.She has a wonderful blog and is the kindest of ladies.

Well friends I guess I will say good bye for today.I hope that you all are enjoying your holiday preparations and are not being to stressed out by the whole shebang.  The big day will be here in the blink of an eye,guess I really should start my shopping .Have a wonderful rest of the day!Christmas Blessings,Jen

Love all your punch needle finishes. Just wonderful. I am so excited as I have my hoop and 2 kits to start learning punch needle as soon as the holidays are behind us. Hope I will be able to create somethings half as pretty as yours. Linda is a darling. We all love her. Have a great day. It's close to 70 here today also.

Wow Jen - great designs! Great punching!!! I'm especially loving that Santa with the sheep - I have a real thing these past few years for Santas and sheep - put the two together and it's magical! You're going to have to start marketing your patterns for the rest of us!! What a sweet little pillow from Linda. She's a busy, busy, elf! Hope you enjoy the day and kick that sinus stuff - no fun - especially this time of year. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Glad you like the pillow tuck.
Just wanted you to know I think of you and wish for the very best for you. Merry Christmas!

You need to sell your work. People would hop on that for sure.
Also the Santa hook rug that you put on that beautiful colonial whale tail peice is AWESOME. I am DROOLING!!!

I wish I could hook rug!
If you lived closer you could show me.

Great post my friend.
