Hello my dear blogging friends.I hope that you all are well and in happy spirits.It seems that once again I am apologizing for not being around.My computer had been having problems for the last several weeks and finally about a week ago it was just a big pain to try and get anything to load.After trying many times to log on to blogs and leave comments I finally through in the towel and quit.Long story short ...some updates,things reloaded and a new keypad for it, the computer seem to be working smoother.I want to thank all of you that left comments on my previous post.If I have not responded yet,I promise I will shortly.I appreciate each of you that take the time to read and leave comments and it is my hope to always reply even if it is late.
I have also been bitten by that nasty flu bug,so that is making my computer time short as well.Friday of last week found me running around doing errands even though I did not feel well.I figured that it was just exhaustion from caring for the goats.By Saturday morning I knew better,I have spent most of my days on the couch under a couple of blankets doing nothing more than sleeping and hacking.Today I feel some better but far from well.
I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day and share a few more projects with you all.The first one is a punch needle that is my design.It is mounted on to a wooden board that I painted and distressed.
A couple close up pics of the painted board,I was really pleased with how it came out.
This is a little pouch that I made using a counted cross stitch pattern.I also made a wool heart and added the same bird motif to it as well.
I used the same wool for the backing as I did for the wool tongues on the front.
The last one is a simple Valentine tuck that I cross stitched and used my walnut dye to stain.
The little wooden heart tag that I made,yeah I know a rusty pin would look better but I am out.LOL!
My thoughts and prayers are with all that have been dealing with the blizzard.I hope that each one of you have a wonderful day tomorrow and know that I will soon be back to keeping tabs on all of your blogs.I just need to shake this flu bug first.Blessings,Jen
