Doreen Frost ~ Designer, Teacher & Merry Maker of Original Needle~Work Creations, Folky Fraktur Woole~Worked Animals & Needle Work Patterns.

I have always dreamed of owning my own business, working with my hands, creating what made my heart sing . Fifteen years ago that dream began to take shape. My business grew slowly at first and I have dabbled in many different art forms (which I still do from time to time :). Six years ago I decided to concentrate on my love of Punch Needle Embroidery. I did loads of research, purchased the tools & supplies, that I knew I would enjoy using, and taught myself everything I could (and felt I needed to know) about this wonderful needle art. In 2011, I began offering my original Punch Needle Embroidery designs and things just took off from there!! Over the years my business has grown tremendously. I now travel throughout New England teaching classes & giving workshops. I also hold small classes here, in our Vermont home in Autumn & Early Winter. Outside, the wind howls, crisp leaves fly past the windows & snow swirls about... inside, a cozy fire burns and a homemade meal is prepared..we settle ourselves with our hoop & needles and enjoy a day of learning, goode conversation, friends and food. Each day I give thanks for this wonderful life I live. ~ doreen

A Home For Mr & Mrs. Proctor

Goode Day To You. A brilliant sun is shining down upon us, here in Vermont, gracing us with its wonderful Vitamin D.  Oh how I do so love Winter and it's dark snowy days, but when the strong sun finally returns, I feel like I can not soak up enough of it's warmth and beauty.  This morning after Oliver & I took our walk I stood in the driveway, closed my eyes and let the suns rays give me new life.  It felt SO good!

My days have been busy printing, packing, shipping, punching, sketching, painting and writing.  One of the designs currently in my hoop is A Home For Mr. & Mrs. Proctor.  

They are currently scouting out just the right spot to start a family.  What could be more perfect than this lovely antique Urn with it's gorgeous Spring flowers.

  I am also working on a new bear.  My plan is to offer a new bear once a month.....considering February is almost over...I'm obviously a bit behind ;). 

I'm off now to pack up a few orders and send them on their way and then it's time for my hoop & needle.

Wishing you a glorious day ~ doreen
