Punchneedle Finishes

It is the most beautiful fall day today.  Clear blue sky, sunny and cold enough to wear a sweater.
I just love sweater weather!

I just finished a few punchneedle pieces...getting ready for craft fairs.
I love to do punchneedle but I never know how to finish them.
The piece might sit in the finished basket for a couple of months until 
I figure out just the right way to present it.

I posted a few more punchneedle pieces on my facebook page

You'll also find a few wool applique pieces I finished recently. 
Don't forget to "like me" on facebook.

Enjoy your day...Packer Sunday,

God Bless America....

May we always remember....

 I visited the 9/11 Museum this summer and came upon this amazing quilt....the Victims Quilt.  
 I started to read the plaque next to the quilt and immediately I remembered my mom telling me about this quilt. We didn't know it made it into the museum.
A wonderful quilt artist from my parents small town Connie Daniel was one of the people to design and make this quilt.  It has so much detail every victims picture is on this quilt. Little angels are next to the picture of moms that were pregnant. 
 My parents, my brother and his family, and my cousins and their families were all able to stitch on this quilt.  That how Connie was, she wanted to share her love of quilting with everyone.
You can read more about the quilt here.
What a wonderful tribute to all the loved ones who were victims of 9/11.
Remembering Connie who was a true quilt artist. 
Sadly Connie passed away and never saw this amazing quilt hanging in the museum.

God Bless America,

Happy Fall!

First day of school and it's time for some fall decorating!

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here. My summer was filled with family visiting, vacations, Summerfest, crafting and of course August our birth month.  Everyone in our family has a birthday in August so were eating cake all month long.... Yum!

I love decorating for fall it starts my favorite time of the year, first fall and then Christmas.

Craft fairs start the middle of this month and I've been crafting like crazy.  Stitching and painting, painting and stitching. Check my Facebook page for some pictures of things that I've been working on.

Enjoy your day, Leanne
