SOLD...***CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS***I am offering one of my new designs this year....Santa riding on a Christmas tree....punched in beautiful Valdani threads and mounted onto an antique piece of plinth molding. This molding has a wonderful aged and crackled finish from many years on someone's porch or in an old home! It measures roughly 12"high x 5 1/4" wide. Thank you so much for your time and visit today to PHM!
SOLD...**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**....I have punched this small Santa and J.O.Y banner and have placed it in this small frame, which can hang, sit on a shelf, or be placed in a basket with some greens! I have used a mix of Valdani and DMC threads. The frame roughly measures 3 3/4" tall x nearly 3" wide and has a wire hanger, which actually could be bent down to make sort of an easel. I hope you have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
SOLD..**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I am offering for sale one of my new designs for Christmas. I chose to punch this pattern in soft muted colors so that the stars in the corners were very subtle. If you use bright colors it might look like stained glass....trying to make my patterns versatile! I hand sewed a nice piece of 100% wool onto the back of the punched piece. The antique shredder board is a beautiful old honey stained finish and measures about 19 1/4" tall x 4 3/4" wide....and the punched piece is not permanently attached so that after the Christmas season is over, the shredder board may be used in your everyday décor. I used Valdani thread mostly with just a touch of DMC. Thank you so very much for your interest in PHM and for visiting my page today. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving...we certainly all have been blessed in many ways this year!
