~Olde New England Yuletide Stocking~


GLAD TIDINGS. Tis cold & damp here in Vermont this morning with rain, freezing rain and a change over to snow all predicted to happen during our overnight hours tonight. I love this time of year and it's unpredictable storms. Perfect for staying home and being cozy by the fire, stitching bears and working on new punch needle designs.

Speaking of PUNCH NEEDLE DESIGNS!! My very FIRST punch needle pattern is now available!!! I am so pleased with how it came out and am so happy to be offering it to you.

**Olde New England Yuletide Stocking**...PN-#001~2013, is listed in my ETSY shop (link in the column at the top of the page) as an instant downloadable pattern and as a paper pattern. I will be offering it here, on my website later this afternoon.

IN THE HARVEST STUDIO....a lovely day of sipping cocoa while photo taking and editing...description and detail writing...as we prepare ourselves for this evening's web show :)...such a festive and lovely day.

IN THE HARVEST KITCHEN.........a pot of chili is in the crock pot on this damp and chilly New England day.

Wishing you the merriest of days. :)Doreen

P.S. The stocking snowman's expression is so sweet...not blank like most. Super job giving him a heart!!!
