Putting it all together

Well I have all the pieces and parts and I have begun the process of bringing it all together. I still need to line the inside and also put a backing on the inside of the lid. 
Finished product to follow soon.

Punch work is done, Yea!

Well, the Needle Punch is done, now I am just waiting for the picnic basket to arrive to plan on the application of the piece to the lid of the basket. I still don't know what the basket condition is like but I want it to be a primitive nature so it doesn't need to be perfect.
I plan on lining the inside of it and putting a batting on the underside of the lid and then cover it with a nice coordinating fabric and make little pockets that you can put pins and needles and a little pocket for the scissors and Thimble. Okay, I have all this in my head now I just need to get the basket so I can pull it all together.
I am tired now so if I were like my sweet Baxter I would be doing this.

Now I am off to finish my penny rug purse. I have half of it done.

Peek a Boo from Our home to yours

Well we have been playing and sewing and trying to keep busy which isn't difficult with this little guy.Baxter  is keeping all of us going including his soul mate, Phoebe.
I am just finishing the punch needle that I am going to attach to the top of the vintage Picnic basket. It should be here soon. I got it off Etsy and I hope that it is as in good condition as it looked in the picture.  I will back it with some nice wool then either glue it or stitch it on. I suppose a lot depends on the condition of the basket.
I made this one before using an old sewing basket. I like the idea of the size of the picnic basket.

Just a little update.

Well, I need to readjust my schedule as I was thinking , duh, that today was Super Bowl Sunday. Just goes to show how much I pay attention to the football scheme of things.
Well I suppose that Phoebe and Baxter will be ruling the roost as soon as the sun is up but for now they are snuggling down.

I am playing catch up on all my WIP. I swear that I have at least a dozen or so right this very minuter but these are the ones that I am working on a little more diligently.
My Punch needle is coming right along as long as my eyes will allow. I swear that they get tired faster and I just don't know why.

My penny rug purse or runner, still haven't decided is sort of half way done.

I have 140 wooden spools on their way so that will be one more WIP but one that I can work on when I am watching TV and don't need to be following a pattern.

I am still working on my rug hooking of Sweet William Wallace but am sort of setting it aside for a bit. I still miss his sweet nature and snuggle that he used to do. Baxter seems to be doing the same snuggle that Wally used to do.

So I guess if I am going to get anything done, I best get off of here and back to work or pleasure depending on how you look at it.
Have a great day and please, If you should drop by, just leave me a little note to say Hi, I stopped by.
Hugs to all of you my friends.
