I am offering a new Fall design of mine that I have named Roly Poly Cat because I have attached him to a slightly curved antique porcelain door knob and he can rock back and forth! He is punched in bright Halloween colors, using Valdani and DMC thread This Halloween Cat measures nearly 10" tall. He is stuffed with clean, new polyfil and comes from a smoke-free home. I have sewn a piece of 100% black wool on the back side. I am kindly asking 95.00, plus postage for this unique piece. I gladly accept paypal or personal checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks so much for your visit here today!

**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...This new pattern of mine was a very big challenge. I wanted to take a design, inspired by vintage postcards, and make it into something that might fit on a rolling cart. I even went to the grocery store to study the bins of watermelons to figure out how I wanted to punch up the sides of the watermelon car! There is a funny cast of characters that I like to use in my Halloween themed designs and cats, jacks, and owls are a favorite of mine. The punched piece has been made into a small pillow that can sit on the rolling cart or be removed to be used in another setting, if desired. The cart has rusty wheels and a pull string. The cart measures about 8" x 3 1/4". I may never punch another one of these...it took some time to work out the design and to punch. I am kindly asking 125.00, plus postage for this unique piece. I gladly accept paypal and personal checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks for your interest in my punch needle designs!
