It had been requested that I add my punch needle designs to this blog site for people to look  at and purchase is they wish too.  Currently I have a few available but will make some more in the future and post them here.
I can sell them as a paper pattern that I will mail to you and you can transfer it to weavers cloth.  Or for an additional price I can transfer them for you to weavers cloth and then mail them.  Since this is not a full time occupation don't buy from me if you are impatient or need need instant gratification.  I have do to this work around my other occupations.  We normally go out to town where I can mail things about once a week sometimes less  in the winter...depends on the weather.  I also so not do Paypal or credit cards but will take checks or money orders.  Buyer pays the postage in addition.  I can ship priority mail or for usually less if a paper pattern is requested. This is what I have now:
WHILE REINDEER SLEEP   10" x 5 1/8 "  this design was drawn with a full moon, and I have a watercolor guide in that shown, and have a nearly finished needlepunch photo done in daylight which is an option to how you do it,  Let me know what you want and I will draw the background as day or not.  This will be $16 transferred to weavers cloth

PRANCING HORSE   5" x7"  a design of a simple horse.  You can follow the ink lines to shade the horse or ignore them for a flat design.  I have no done up piece to show yet on this one.  Transferred to Weavers cloth it will be $14.

RYELAND WOOLY SHEEP     3 x3 1/2" a cute little wooly fellow in a floral  border, transferred to weavers cloth for $12.  I have an unfinished example shown

PUMPKIN PATCH   3 1/2 X 4 3/4" easy design in which use use bright colors.  Tranferred  to weavers cloth it is $12.  It is also shown completed and framed

The photos of the designs certainly did not come out where I wanted them to be but I am not very sophistacated when it comes to computers thats for sure
I have decied to shown the finished ones along with some of my rug hooking in the main part of my blog or the mountaintopfarm part; so go there to see finishing possibilities.

How to purchase a product

Below are listed all the fabrics I  currently have for sale from my hand dyeing sessions.  As they are purchased I will delete them from the website and post new ones as they are completed.
I price my fabrics based on the square inches because I think that is a realistic way of charging instead a flat fee for a "fat quarter" which can vary with the yardage because wools vary in their width across the loom when woven from 56-62" and that will affect the size when the fat quarters are made; in addition the fulling process causes some reduction in the final sizes.  The square inches are measured after processing.
The buyer pays the postage in addition to the posted price and I use priority shipping via the post office.  We go to town once a week and I ship on that day.  I accept checks and money oderes and do wait  for checks to clear.  I do not accept credit cards or pay pal.  You can reach me at  Please put Dragons lair in the subject box of an email.
I am not able to sell outside the USA.

Soon I will be adding more punch needle designs
