needlin' around ~

here's a small sampling of some of the many little needle punch items
I'm working on for my Autumn shows...
these, and many more,
will be made into little spice-filled pillows and pinkeeps,
ornaments and little 'pockets'...
I have to start thinking about how my booth will look at the Ghoultide Gathering show..
I'm aiming for a Victorian/Mourning theme with a whimsical twist
so I'll need to find just the right fabrics for the table covering and then props to display my samplers and such on...

it's always so much fun getting ready for shows...lots of work, but worth it!
I get the chance to meet my customers, fellow artisans and make new friends to boot!

They look great Lori !!! I love Autumn and Halloween too !! Victorian/Mourning theme sound great.. In the south, I still have relatives that when someone in the family passes, they hang fabric over all mirrors.. When you said mourning that was the first thing that popped in my head.. lol And the 2 witches punch needle is that a chart that is aviable?
Have Fun... April in ALABAMA wishing a hurry up on Fall.
