*New* Punch Needle Pattern and New Doll , pattern almost finished...

I never would have believed anyone, if they told me last year when I first really gave it a shot at punch needle, that I would be able to start a project at 4:30 pm , that's drawing pattern on the weavers cloth, setting up my supplies then starting to punch, and be finished with it by 11:50 pm ... I think what really has helped me is getting my thyroid taken care of. When it was so bad and levels were dangerously low ( I didn't realize it) I couldn't have concentrated long enough to even think to draw up a design. I then proceeded to stay up ALL night ( I know...stupid) and finish up my doll for a new pattern. Not only that, but I hooked up a quick heart to add to it, allthough the hooking part is optional for the pattern.
I did manage a sleep for a bit, and now back up, working on the pattern finishes, and God willing, that will be finished before later tonight and then, I AM going to bed at a decent hour !!Hubby got up for work this morning and almost scolded me for not going to bed. He worries I'll get run down and then I catch any little bug that happens along. I heard him getting his belongings ready, next thing I know he is standing behind me with a prepared glass of "Emergen C"... distasteful drink...I can taste the B vitamins in it and EWWWWW.... He teased that he would plug my nose for me while I drank did stand over me till I drank gagged it all down.... Hugs to you all... Be Creative !! Colonial Punch Needle Heart Hanger

Good for your dear husband for making you take your tonic!! Good man! I love all of your patterns and finishes, as usual! I have thyroid issues myself...perhaps my dosage needs to be changed. I would be out of my mind, up until 1 am. LOL
Take care of yourself...but keep making those wonderful things!!

Your doll is a real cutie. The punched heart hanging is so very
pretty and 'wooly' looking.
I love them both.

Angie Berry said...

I LOVE them, Robin!!!
Yep, your thyroid can wreak havoc on you. I know when my levels are too low. It's absolutely horrible.
Awww, your hubs is a sweetheart!! You've got yourself a keeper for sure. ♥

Robin you are working so hard. What a Great hubby you have! I'm with you though, those B vitamins are nasty, but so important. I finally started taking a liquid B Complex. Better than the pill even though it's not that great. I can handle it better. So happy your thyroid is under control.
Your creations are Sooo sweet. Great job!!

Love both your doll and both of the hearts! Not sure if I could sit and punch for that long though...but only because I have jumbledupcannotfinishaproject syndrome. LOL I start and DON'T finish. New Years Blessings, Janice
