Punch Needle Pattern finished....rug progress....I won ....and bought goodies...

Hello all !I Hope everyone is having a creative or at least a productive day ! I've just finished my newest punch needle pattern..." Fraktur Floral " ...The pattern will be available for purchase on my sidebar .... Here is the finished piece...
I am happy with how it turned out..hope you like it too !! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I managed to get some progress on my rug, and since the punch needle and pattern are finished, I'll be able to get back to it...I see a spot on the lower left side I hooked that I'm not even sure why I did it...lol...must've been "loopy" on my Ambien ...I have made a promise to my family to never use my sewing machine again late at night after taking my sleep med...I sewed my finger once.....lol
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Guess what ???? I WON a sweet giveaway..Mindy Raymond of RaymondHomestead had a giveaway and I won it !! Look at this sweet wool applique hanging heart and matching wool mat :
Thank you Mindy !! I love them !! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been needing more wool...Bad !! so I decided i am going to dye some of the wool I have here that I'm not using because the color is just not anything I want... I didn't have many dyes, so I went to Laurie Lausen's Website Wooly Red Rug and bought a plethora of dyes...I had colors in mind, from one of my dye books and just bought what i needed to produce at least 5 new colors... I've been waiting to do this, after I've finished this rug I'm working on....Oh, and I purchased the new Spring Issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects from her also...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~` A Few folks have been posting about some of their tools of the trade... Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm had posted some lovely antique hooks she has...I don't have anything too old and my 2 hooks were gifted to me by Kelley Belfast ( Kankerdoodle)"With Hook and Needle" , I never would of started hooking rugs if it weren't for her encouragement and my first supplies... Thank you Kelley !! But...here are my little scissors in a cleaned out candle jar and a cool wool lint felted ball pin cushion I got in a swap...oh, and some other tools for sewing, doll making...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ok..that's enough for today...We have a HIGH WIND WARNING right now, so hoping I can get off here before our power goes out...lol Hugs, Robin

Hi Robin... I love your punch needle piece and the colours are wonderful. Your rug is coming along very very well and I am so excited to see the finished product. Congrats on your win and I had stopped a while ago with my subscription to Primitive Quilts but looking at the cover I am wondering if I should by another copy. Let me know what you think about that magazine.
Hugs my friend

Hi, Robin, I really love your fraktur finish, in fact I just ordered it!!! The rug you are working on is also so pretty, hope you release that as a pattern too. We've had a lot of wind the last couple of days too.
