~*Happy New Year*~

Hello Prim Friends!  Yes, it has been a long time (yet again).  With a new year comes new goals! I'm starting off with a little something to share with you...

a freebie doodle!  (and if you read all the way to the end... a 2nd freebie too!)  I have a goal to have lots of finishes this year.  There isn't a set number, but I want to makes lots and lots of finishes!!!  I hope you do too!

My sweet husband gave me a tablet for Christmas.  He is urging me (and cheering me!) to get back into the swing of creating MORE!!

Learning how to use the tablet for drawing doodles is a bit of a challenge.  Patience and focus needed!  But, I already have one finish!

It is a very simple doodle... or simple scribble...

(a great big a positive sigh...)

I gathered my basket of tangled DMC threads and my Cameo Ultra Punch (medium needle only!)… and punched away.

I made the pattern just about 5 by 7 inches on my print... and straightened the edges (hence the uneven black border around the finished punch piece.

Cut off the excess Weaver's Cloth to about 1/2 inch around.  Then put face down on a small bit of wool for the backing.

Stitch as close the punches as possible leaving about a 2 inch opening.  (I use my sewing machine.)

Snip the tips of the corners off to reduce bulk and then turn right sides out.

I will often times save my leftover bits of wool from rug hooking.  It makes a great pillow stuffing for these small pieces.

I filled the pillow, but not too tight or over-stuffed.

Sew the opening closed.  For added goodness, I trimmed the seam with a thick noodle scrap.  Using a blanket stitch and more black embroidery floss, I stitched all around to hold the wool noodle in place.


My first finish of 2019!!

As always, enjoy the doodles!  I love to see finishes, so please show me!

Wishing you all warm smiles and a great New Year!
