Finished Punch Needle and a few more fabric designs...

Good Sunday Morning to you all.
I was up early to take my daughter to work, so I decided to add this short post.
As my title says, and you can see the picture, I finished up the "We The People " Punch Needle piece  that is going to be a new pattern. I actually had a lady contact me before it was finished and wanted to buy it... So it is sold allready. I wasn't sure how I was going to finish it, but she did say she would prefer a hanging pillow, so that's what I did.
Well, I sewed it and stuffed it nice and full and got it all packed up ready to go...It's a good thing I didn't get to the post office right away, because I had forgotten to take a picture for the pattern cover...So I tried to carefully undo the bubble envelope it was in , but there was no having it...Those darn things, the adhesive is like cement, so I  ripped it open and got the pics before packaging it all back up in a new envelope.
Problem is, I should have taken the pic before stuffing ... It's so full, I can't get both sides to show up real well in the photo, should have taken the picture while it was still flat.....Oh well, live and learn...
I've been playing around on Spoonflower some more, and have a few more designs up for viewing...I have some swatches coming in the mail of the first 3 I did up and then those will be available for sale to the public.
Here are a few of the newest designs:

Have a great day everyone ! Enjoy your Holiday !!

Ooooo Robin you are so good! I really like your new punch needle pattern! Do your punch needle patterns come preprinted on weavers cloth?

GREAT design Robin!! I was just leafing through my patterns in search of something "patriotic" to punch. (I'm in a funk with my hooking these days....) Wish I would have had this in my stash! I agree with Mindy - although I CAN transfer paper pattens onto cloth, I really am spoiled and like the ones that come preprinted on weaver's cloth. And I like it when the designer includes the floss colors they used. Sometimes they get it "so" right, I want to replicate what they did and not use strain my very weak creative gene. ;o)

Did a little catch-up reading here - and I LOVE your fabrics. Oh, oh....this Spoonflower place is gonna be trouble - I just know it! I could see that first floral of yours working so well as backing pieces for stitcheries and punched pieces - and I'm thinking that "Liberty" one would be a great match for the punch piece I'm working on now.....Will these pieces be available here on your blog - or just on Spoonflower? (Sorry - this whole idea of designer fabrics from the artist is all new to me....)

Wishing you a wonderfully blessed holiday weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Ilove your new design "We the People" and good for you for having it sold before it was even finished. Wow, such validation on your work must have been extremely rewarding to you. I know I'd have been elated and am sure you were also.
