Primitive Folk Art Black Cat Needlepunch



Somehow, I managed to finish this little project
for my WSOAPP shoppe deadline which is today.
Be sure to check out all the shoppes in WSOAPP!

I decided to paint the tin dust pan black,
and like the way the colors pop.

Special thanks to Primitive Betty's for
generously sharing this design.

I did alter the pattern slightly, to
ajdust it proportionally to fit the tin.

This has been a truly strange summer for me.
Yesterday was one of those surreal days....

Today, my heart is heavy, and my thoughts are
preoccupied with a special person.
A man that is responsible for making a difference,
in the quality of my life, and
cared so much about his employees.

Yesterday he collapsed at work, in the arms of
a co-worker. He was rushed to the hospital
and stabilized, but it is still unknown if
he sustained brain damage.
He will turn 80 in 2 weeks.

It's one of those times in life,
where a course can change in an instant.

Another reminder how some things can be
so trivial, and some things taken for granted,

that we can't say these words often enough...
and have no regrets.

"Thank You"

"I'm sorry"

"I love you"
