Gripper -----

Since I decided to get back into punch needle....
I went full out and purchased a gripper frame.
Long over due!
This will be so much easier than the hoops!
I whipped up some quick covers from wool pieces that I had around here, and put them over those sharpies!
I plan on doing a little stitching on them and trimming soon to make them look better.

This is a 10x10 Round About, so it'll give me all kinds of ways to manipulate.
Hoping this works out... I'm excited to use it!

Hoosier cabinet!

My new favorite piece!

I've wanted a Hooiser cabinet for years. Mostly they are either falling apart or way out of my budget....or the all time favorite... now just where in the world will we put it!

We found this in an antique mall after Christmas.... I adored it, showed my husband some features, and walked on. This time I guess my husband really noticed or something. He thought the price wasn't bad once one of my daughter-in-laws told him it was very good price. ~ Thank you Ashley! ;o)

Fast forward to yesterday... we made plans to go back out there and see if it was still there. It was... he made a lower counter offer....the gal took it and the rest is history!

I'm not sure if it's a Hoosier or another name brand. I've found out there were other brands made out there. (It's kinda like cars... they're all cars but there's Chevy, Ford, Dodge, etc).
There is the number 44 , stamped into the wood on the top too.

We have a temp set up I just took a couple of quick picks. Excuse any mess please ;o)

Preliminary decorating...

Just had to share!
Have a blessed day my friends!
