Wow! Has another week gone by already? It's Whatcha Working on Wednesday over at My Country Home, and I have just a few things to share. This is my first Needlepunch project. It's coming along okay I think, though I'm not really sure what I'm doing. I just bought a book at Hobby Lobby, and taught myself. It bugs me that I have to stop punching, separate the floss and rethread the needle so often. I'm really impatient with things like that. I bought the hoop recommended in the book, but it still doesn't hold the fabric tight enough, so I have to adjust that often too. I'm enjoying it though, and I should have it done soon, just a few more little areas and then the background will be black with a little charcoal mixed in.
I've also completed several more of these guys. Some are for orders, and the others I'll add to my selling blog in a day or two.
This is what I should be workin' on. I've started this and need to finish. This is my lavendar bed. Well, there are a few other things in there too, but I have 4 kinds of lavendar that grow really well here. See, that little angel is prayin' for me to please get busy and pull out those weeds and ugly dead stuff. Today would be a perfect day to do it. It's 80 degrees out there, almost too hot in the direct Texas sun! I won't even show you my herb bed. It's crazy full of weeds and parsley, and the little gnome that lives there would be embarassed.
So that's it for me this week. Be sure to hop over to Leslie's and see what others have been working on!
