For the first time since July, I've made new jewelry.
I didn't realize how much I missed it until I started making it again.
All of these and more will be listed in my Etsy Shop starting today!

My punch needle class scheduled for October 3rd was postponed due to the weather. Virginia's coastline was hit with lots and lots of rain.
The class has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 24th. I hope many of you can make it! It's not too late to sign up! Call Haus Tirol at 757-220-0313. Lydia and Paula would love to hear from you!
The class project is photographed above.
Wishing you all a great week!

There is an error on the thread list for And Heaven and Nature Sing.
I am so bummed there's an error on this design.
The first symbol in the thread list that is a dash (-) is supposed to be the three dot symbol. I think this is what some of you are calling the mailbox. The second symbol in the thread list that is a dash (-) is correct. The three dot symbol on the chart represents NPI 902 (DMC 3828). The dash symbol on the chart represents white.
I am truly sorry for this mistake.
On a happier note, I would like to thank all of you who have ordered this chart. Your response to this design has been overwhelming and I am ever so grateful! You have filled my heart with joy!!
I've been an order-filling girl for the past week and my apartment looks like a hurricane blew threw it! I'll be leaving Friday morning for Williamsburg, Virginia for the punch needle class I'll be teaching at Haus Tirol on Saturday. My daughter Liz is going with me and I'm thrilled to be spending three wonderful days with her!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
