French Country Hen Punch Needle Design
Pulling wool and choosing colors...
I'm loving the variety of Valdani Red shades
in this French Country Hen...
Golden Autumn ~ Proud Turkey
Aged Wine ~ Cherry Basket
Burnt Chocolate ~ Raspberry Fizz
I found just enough of this Red, Caramel and
Green plaid wool for the front and back
of this cushion.
I placed a box border of hand dyed wool
around the edge of the Maple Cream Weavers Cloth.
Blanket stitched the border in place,
to frame the Punch Needle design.
Perfect color combo for the upcoming holidays.

The Velveteen Rabbit
He said, "You become. It takes a long time.
That's why it doesn't happen often to people who
break easily, or have sharp edges, or who
have to be carefully kept.
Generally, by the time you are Real,
most of your hair has been loved off,
and your eyes drop out and you get loose in
the joints and very shabby. But these
things don't matter at all,
because once you are Real you can't be ugly,
except to people who don't understand."
