Ah Yes, I'm Punch Drunk Again

I know I said that I was going to start working on my own designs but I love this one so much that I decided to go ahead and do this one too.
I also have picked some of my favorite subject mater for my future designs for my Punch work.
I think that the title of my blog is more true then fiction as the more I punch the more I want to punch. So the question is, does that make me Punch Drunk. I find that after punching for a couple of hours I have a hard time focusing on text or other small figures. I know that my eyes need testing and I am sure that using a magnifying lamp constantly isn't probably the best thing for my eyes. The get tired very quickly and so do I and when I close my eyes for a couple of minutes, I fall asleep.  Do any of my fellow punchers out there have the same issues or is this a personal one?
All I know is it seems that every time I find something I really enjoy it ends up being hazardous to my health. heheh. Oh well, I am going to just keep punching till I can't. I am just enjoying it so much.
This is a few pics that I am going to design for my own punch work patterns
                                    Aren't these just the cutest little lambs  and children too?
                              The sheep are called babydolls and they are from Sussex England.
                                  I want to live on the farm or at least have one just like it. It is everything that I would want in the way of a small working farm with the little spring and mill too. I could have room for sheep and dogs and chickens and some Pigmy goats too.
 This is Spring Time at Bromleys Mill at the Cuttalossa Farm
                                       Can't you just picture this as a punch work design? I am working on doing this one in a punch work too. Just haven't got the design just the way I want it yet. I am finding that I have to eliminate a little detail which is so hard for me as I am very detail oriented.
           I am anxious to get started on the new designs as well as finishing what I have started already
