I am offering my original heart pattern, "Spirally Heart", for your consideration. I have used dimensional punching to create a chenille effect on the surface of the heart, using Valdani and DMC threads. This gives the heart an antique feel. It is backed with a piece of 100% wool in a matching color. The heart measures about 5" across and 5" high. Thanks for your visit today to PHM!
My first original, copyrighted heart design of 2020 is this cherub heart that I have called, "Love's Sweet Fancy". The heart was punched using Valdani and DMC thread and roughly measures 4 1/2" across and 5" high. It is stuffed with polyfil. It has a backing of 100% wool in the dark barn red color that matches the outer border. I am kindly asking 69.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. I gladly accept paypal or cashier's checks. If interested in a purchase, please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com. Thank you so very much for your interest in my punch needle designs!

It is stuffed with polyfil. It has been created entirely by hand. I am kindly asking 69.00, plus postage and I gladly accept paypal and cashier's checks.

I am offering a heart which has a vine with berries border around the central heart. It was punched using Valdani and DMC thread and measures about 3 1/8"w x 4"high and is backed with a beautiful piece of 100% wool in a barn red color to coordinate with the thread colors in the center heart. It is stuffed with polyfil...made entirely by hand. It comes from a smoke-free home. We here at PHM appreciate your encouragement and interest in our artististic endeavors! Thanks for your visit to our site today!
Another of my new original, copyrighted designs is this sheep in a landscape, entitled "Lazy Grazing". It depicts a sheep, lazily grazing alongside a village stream. I have also included 3 wool pennies with buttons sewn on with a blanket stitch and attached to the wool pillow front. The backing is the same wool, a beautiful fabric purchased from the Old Tattered Flag in Evans Mills, NY. This wool fabric is called "Sweet Mama". It is a white on cream geometric design and is so very soft and provides just the perfect neutral background for my punched sheep design. The pillow, stuffed with both fabric remnants and a little bit of polyfil in the corners, measures about 8 1/2" x 6 1/2". It can be displayed all year long! I am kindly asking 72.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. I gladly accept paypal and cashiers checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks for your visit today!

I have punched my original Valentine Angel heart design and attached the piece to an antique oil can. The heart is punched with rustic Moire Wool thread! It has a wool backing and also has a length of antique red/cream French twill tape tied onto the antique oil can. This punch needle piece measures about 5" tall. The word "Valentine" is punched subtly at the top of the heart. . Thank you for visiting PHM today and have a great upcoming Valentine's Day!
This offering is different from my usual punch needle items, but I also love using clay and paper clay to fashion primitives, as well. This painted paper mache box has a tiny stenciled heart on each side of the lid. It has also been slightly antiqued to give it an old feel and to bring out the details in the heart and hand plaque on top of the lid. The hand and heart, as well as the roping, stand up a little above the lid surface. This is a sweet little box...just right to sit next to an item on a shelf, hold a special gift to someone dear, or to include in your everyday décor. Thanks for your time and interest in our artwork here on PHM! **Punch Needle**
