Punch needle, Pumpkin & Crow!

Cool August nights~
Corn fields changing colors...
Colorful leaves beginning to spot the lawns!

Fall colors are so delicious!
Started my 'Pumpkin & Crow' punch needle last night.
Now I want to make a pumpkin pie!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Sweet Friends!

Punch needle whale & dolphins~

"Down by the Sea" copyright Michelle L. Palmer

He is swimming with the dolphins today...
Sir Whale is finished & ready for framing!

"Flow Blue Skeps" copyright Michelle L. Palmer
Is just home from the frame shop...
Framed with museum glass (zero glare) to protect
the colors and keep it preserved.
Sherry's Bear & Frame Shop in Seneca Falls

Sharing Sir Whale's progress (backwards...)

I use all cotton floss...
Six strands & three strands.

His coat of many colors...

I sketch my design lightly in pencil and then add some contour lines
with three strands... then I start filling in and painting with strings!

'Sir Whale' was his name before I started adding color...
As I was stitching along I was humming, "Down by the Sea..."
Still hum it when I see it!

Hope you have a wonderful week, Sweet Friends!

Creative bits & pieces~

Wouldn't it be fun to pull up to an acorn stand?
I would purchase a cup or twelve...

Pumpkins are peeking through the fields of leaves!

This little love is ready to share his heart~

Acorn tea!
This little sparrow is preparing tea for her friends!

Started a new punch needle project... can you see him?

"Down by the sea..." that's the tune playing in my head while I work!

Hope you're having a creative summer, Sweet Friends!
