Not Happy and Happy

It is once again Saturday.  The Saturday that falls smack dab in between two shifts at work.  I worked a 24 hour shift yesterday and work another 12 tomorrow.  Yuck!  I came home this morning with a spring in my step and ready to work on a new project! What would it be today? A cross stitch project or I know a punchneedle project.  Yeah let's pick one of the new ones my kind friend sent to me in the mail.  Though gee I'd really like to design one.  No, I better stick to a pattern I already have.  Down to my stash I go.  OH yeah this one will be great...

Easter Montage by Twisted Threads... this is how it was suppose to look.  click HERE

You all know that I am not into bright cheery colors.  No, my life if dull and dreary colors.  Well, I bet you are wondering how do you make Easter colors boring?  Oh yeah this girl can do it. LOL.  Needless to say I didn't follow the colors or the loop size the pattern called for.  Oh no this girl is a rebel!  Being a rebel sometimes does not pay off I'm here to tell you.  This is how mine turned out...

I decided words are too hard to punch for me.  I tried three different times to punch the word Easter.  I am so angry right now I could spit.  I then tried to go back and just fill it in with the background color and yes you guessed it I ran out of that color. grrrrrrrr  If anyone has any advice on punching words please tell me.  I tried it with 2 strands of thread as directed at the end since the pattern said to do it that way. Nuh uh not going to work!  So here I sit frustrated. A whole morning wasted.  In other words NOT HAPPY!!!! lolol

I don't believe I showed you my new sign I painted.  I have wanted one like this forever.  So, I talked with Becca from Folk Art from the Harbor and she designed it for me.  She is also selling the stencil on her website. :-)  This makes me so HAPPY!!!!  I already had a old board in the garage so I got to it.  It has been a very long time since I stenciled a sign.  I just don't use many signs in my decor anymore.  hmmmm wonder why that is?  Anyway I like this one.

Can you see the mess on my table reflecting in the microwave?  Yeah that is my punch needle stuff.  I just left it where it was until I came to talk to you.  I am blowing of steam until I can figure out what to do with it.  I believe the trash is calling my name. :-(  Well, maybe if I eat my lunch something will come to me on how to fix it.  I sure hope so.  I'd hate to waste it...

I will share my newest news with all of you about my business on Monday.  See you then!

Funny, you mentioned about how to make Easter drab...I went over to my mom's and she has all these colorful eggs and bunnies and I came home and looked at my drab bunnies and grungy lamb. ;)
I know we can be critical of our own work, but I like your punch project!
