I am sooooooooo excited! When my friend Karen came down last week, she handed me a big old bag and said this is for you from me and Kelly! Kelly is my other most dear friend I left up in Ohio when I moved and I miss them both terribly. Anywho.....Kelly has started her own business designing PunchNeedle patterns and selling supplies. You can find her work on Garden Gate PunchNeedle Patterns. I have mentioned more than once how I have wanted to learn how to do this and Kelly's response is always...."It's sooooooooo easy and FUN!" I have gone into shops that carry this stuff and have even had the sales girl show me how to thread the needle but I never bought one. I did buy a cute $11.00 pattern though that I have been able to look at for the past two years sitting in the ziploc bag! Why do we do things like that??? So after I opened up my goodie bag and saw what was in there, I was THRILLED!. Karen hadn't been at the house 10 minutes and I made her show me how to get started. Next thing you know we are heading off to Wal-Mart to get some more weavers cloth! When we got home I organized all my stuff in a new folder I had that I just got from Office Max! I am still not very good ...everything looks FAT. Kelly said it does until you fill it all in then it all takes shape! Sooooooo, I am onto a new hobby and I have to say....It is easy once you get the hang of it and FUN! If you have been thinking about doing it....give it a try...I think you'll like it!
THANKS KELLY AND KAREN...YOU TWO ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!
