Chick and Illusions

I had another snow day and was able to start a new punch needle I have.
I enjoy the simplicity of the process. It is very much like you become the needle of a sewing machine that is making loops.
At least that is what it reminds me of.

My next project...

The first book was phenomenal and was a "life changer". So I expect and have heard this one is fabulous too!

Happy Day!


  1. I remember reading JLS when I was 13 and it had a profound effect on me, too. I would love for my kds to read it. Let me know how you like this book. And your chickie is way cute! Thank you for sweet comments on my blog! (:

    1. Hi Gina,
      Just at chapter 7, so will let you far...good :)
      Awww thanks! I bought the kit because I loved the chick. Thought it was cute.
      I always love visiting your blog and seeing what you and the family are up too, even
      if I do not always comment.

  2. Love your new punch needle art! I still haven't quite got the hang of of and will now go watch the video you shared. Great caravan! cool shop with so many things I love! thanks for all the good tips and photos! xoxo

  3. Hi Mary,
    I am having so much fun with the punch needle. The video gave me that "ah ha" moment when I realized that I needed to be more spontaneous and that it is o k not to be perfect with it. Also, turning the needle sideways, like she does in the video made a big difference. Love the little caravan. It was much smaller than I expected, but that was probably a good thing because I have committed that all chotskies or tchotchkes will reside in a Southwestern armoire I have. That really limits what I can have lol! :) xo

  4. Very sweet, you have really gotten punch needling down, Marie! Stay warm and safe and have a great week. xo

  5. Hi Peggy,
    I am really enjoying the simplicity of punch needle and it is something "new-ish" for me. We have had so many snow days this year. It snowed all day yesterday. But when I am home I sit by the wood stove and have a cuppa tea/coffee :)
    You have a great week too! xoxo :)
