~*Another Weekend Update*~

Hello Dear Friends! The bowling birthday party was great fun... we took pictures but somehow lost them on the digital camera. Bummer! Trinity was very happy & proud to report that he ALMOST scored a few spares. There were 17 little ones in the group to celebrate. They all seemed to really have a wonderful time. Supper is now eaten & dinner dishes are washed... so I'm back at crafting for the retreat. Here is my next finish...

This needle punch was also punched a few weeks back. I only just now did the finishing work on it. I stumbled around trying to decide 'how' to I wanted the finished piece ~ thought about a pinkeep, but it seemed too large ~ thought about framing, but didn't like my selections of frames ~ thought about a box topper, but didn't have just the right box.... so I just made it into a tiny rug. It is backed with a piece of vintage wool & has edges trimmed with hand spun wool yarn and my favorite linen thread.

More smiles until later...
