Antique Coverlet Punch is done and dolls in the works...

"Antique Coverlet" punch Needle

In the works.....angels and Santas...

Just a quick little blog today to show you that I finally finished the "Antique Coverlet" punch needle pattern.  I grunged it up a little afterward as to me, nothing is shiny and new looking.  I love it!!
I am also in the process of making some Angels and Santas for the holidays.  Keep watching, these are going to be awesome, in my humble opinion....
"Trimming the Tree" is coming along nicely, Mom is almost done with it, but she had to take a break as her hand is bothering her.  I told her to get back to work, but she didn't listen.................just kidding.  But, it is looking good.  I'd rather have her take a few days off from hooking instead of doing damage to her hand.  Problem is she is addicted and doesn't want to stop.
Thanks to everyone who ordered my sister's Santa's.  They were all gone by 10 am.  She is going to try to get me more, but in the meantime, if you'd like to get in touch with her directly, please feel free to email her at: 
Getting back to work....
Until next time.......


  1. Oh I love the coverlet punch needle! I loved the hooked version, but was intimidated. How do you like to grungy up PN pieces? I tried coffee, but didn't get great results.

  2. I bought a bag of walnut crystals on ebay a few years ago (it last forever) and mix it with water. A little goes a long way, and you can control how strong you want the color to be....and it doesn't have the coffee smell.

  3. Where do you sell your patterns? I don't see any links here at your site.

  4. Is our website.....


About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
