Happy St. Patty’s Day Eve, everyone. Tomorrow is the day that EVERYONE is Irish. I do happen to be of Irish, Scottish and German descent, so I should legitimately celebrate tomorrow. 🙂
I had a surprise waiting in the mail for me today. I received my punch needle for my newest needle art that I want to learn. I ordered it mid February on Ebay and was kind of surprised I hadn’t received it yet. When I got the package today, now I know why it took so long. It literally came from China. This little $4.50 needle came allllll the way from China. There has to a domestic (USA) source for this and it never occurred to me that it wasn’t coming from the US. The world has definitely become a much smaller place.
Anyway, I got the needle, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. I do know that the final result will be beautiful (after much practice 🙂 ). I plan on checking out some youtube videos to see how to thread and use this needle. It’s a very convoluted and intimidating looking item.
To all you you ‘Irish’ out there, this is my prayer for you:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Be kind to everyone.
