“what is it?” 168 – the answer

Welcome back for the Friday reveal! This week our featured vintage puzzle item is a soap saver! Congrats to all of our smarties this week, and thank you to the brave should who just love to take a stab in the dark when they have no clue. We could all use a dose of your what-the-heck gutsiness. 🙂

To read this week’s guesses, please check the Wednesday post comments section.

Happy weekend, everyone!

“What is it?” Wednesday #168

We’re not sure where the month of July is going so quickly. Many of you are subscribers to Create & Decorate magazine, so you understand that our summer days are filled with holiday and Christmas craft instructions and photography sessions. Knowing that, please accept our apologies for our lack of blog time. However, we know that if our blog followers miss out on a “what is it?” Wednesday post we get hate mail.

Haha.

Ok, hate is an awfully strong word. So, we guess we will refer to these complaint emails as ‘grumble mail’. 🙂

Although a difficult game for some this week, we had quite a few correct guesses! Congrats to those of you who knew this week’s puzzle piece was taken from a wooden bobbin/spool. You may read the guesses in the original post under the comment section. Thanks for playing this week! 🙂

Happy weekend, all!

Berry punchin’ time!

To answer recent blog requests for berry embroidery, we’re sharing one of our punch needle favorites (designed by C&D Editor, Beverly Hotz). We love the literal use of the seed beads! 🙂
