Time for a Make-over & Something New

Sorry for the lack of posts lately!
I have been busy, busy, busy -- and during all this busyness I managed to complete this punchneedle of a Pink Elephant. Hundreds of millions of tiny punches (okay, maybe just a bit of an exaggeration - LOL) with a floss-loaded needle are necessary to create these highly textured designs.

I created this design and worked this 4" X 6" punchneedle to compete in a challenge by one of my eBay art groups. It is a bit of a departure for me and a bit too cute for my usual creations of witches, Jack-o-Lanterns, skulls, bad birdies, etc., but it was fun just the same.
You may have also noticed that I changed my blog design and banner. I was only going to create a new banner that was more "generic" but I just couldn't stop there. Make-overs are good sometimes.
I hope you like the changes.

Karen,
First I have to tell you that I love your new blog makeover, it looks great!
Now I must say that pink Elephant is the cutest! Must have been a lot of work and love in that piece.

Nice makeover! But the elephant - it's a wonder you aren't blind after all that. The patience of a saint, absolutely.
