Needle Punching, Knitting & Things

I picked up needle punching a few years ago by taking Mary's class at 
Frame & Fiber
I needed another hobby (cough - cough) and I ended up loving it!

This snowflake is my latest completed piece...

but I have "punched" quite a few.
Once finished, 
I mount them on a wood base and they make really nice Christmas ornaments & terrific small gifts.
I finished so many last year and those were given to the special people I love.

I keep all of my supplies in this bag by 
Daisy Lane Design

That's the ole' garden state, 
there is a cool button over top the area in which I live.

I am still working on my Trellis Shawl,
I am on the home stretch.
Behind it is my knitting project bag...if you are female,
you know how important it is for each project to have it's own bag.

Our mornings have been very foggy, I can't even see my beloved bridge.

I skipped one week of Home Chef meals and I really missed them,
these are a few good ones from two weeks ago.

- Mini Cheeseburger Flatbreads with thousand island dressing -

- Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Campanelle with Spinach & Asiago -

- Asiago-Crusted Chicken & Creamy Tomato Angel Hair Pasta -

These meals were all so good and I am happy to have received new meals this week, 
we had a good meal today too!

It has been foggy here in the mornings too. I like your cute project bags, the sheep one is my favorite. The ornaments are adorable. Your meals all look delicious, I like your choices. Take care, wishing you a happy day!

I'm glad to see a knitting and needlecraft post. More please! If you move the button on your bag across left a bit, you'll be marking where I live.

Always enjoy your needlework and knitting posts. Your color choices are very similar to my own. The trellis shawl is fabulous! Love the foggy morning also. We have one today, the first one since last winter. I love them.

I have never tried needle punching but they sure are cute and the shawl is coming along really good, will be perfect for winter. I don't like fog and of course is not a worry here in Az.

I love the needle punch...the snowman is my favorite! I've never tried doing that but I would probably enjoy it too. Your meals look great and I'm glad you're back on them. Foggy mornings look neat but then I'm ready for the sun to come out! Enjoy your day! You HAVE been creative! Very nice!

Love the fog photo. The meals look great. Your craft projects always amaze me Debbie. When do you get time to do everything?

Your needle punched ornaments are beautiful; as is your shawl. My goodness, it is foggy there. Winter is a-coming!

You are knocking these needle punch stitchings out! I haven't seen your Santa's before and they are too cute, great gifts. I bet you're getting excited about the shawl getting done. Looks like you had a week of interesting meals :)

I do love your projects and I like the needle punch ones. Do model that shawl when you complete it. I think you are right about having a bag for each projects.
Blessings and hugs!
