Studio Wren Punch Needle

"Studio Wren" copyright 2017 Michelle L. Palmer

Our petite little friend always arrives when the forget me nots are blooming!
She will perch in the pines, dance across the fence top...
March across the window ledges!
Can you hear her sweet song?

This punch needle pattern is very painterly~
I used Instant Antique (Primitive Gatherings) to stain the background colors.

Some friends spritz their completed works to age & make them prim.

I like to spritz the floss prior to punching my designs.
Be sure to lay paper down to protect your surface from staining.
Take them out of the wrapper & spread out gently so they don't tangle.
Allow to dry completely before punching.

Hope your day is going great, Friends!
Thank you for stopping by~

Earth Day~ Bees

Earth Day!
We have a cool & damp day but we are planning the vegetable garden!
The bees will have more blossoms soon~

"Earth laughs in flowers" Ralph Waldo Emerson
The bees DANCE in the flowers~

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Friends!

Hooked rug progress~

Started my second hooked rug while waiting for Loves to arrive
home from college for Easter weekend~

Little by little when I can find an hour or two in the evenings~

Strong storms rolled in last night~
While the lightning was on display and the thunder was rocking,
I distracted my self with some flow blue loops!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Friends!

Twins are expected!

My dad had twins as siblings~
My mom had twins as siblings~
I was so very grateful to have one baby at a time!

(Dress is Carter's baby & the little boys onesie is by Oshkosh)
I added the little illustrations to match their nursery themes~

One of my sweetest cousins is expecting fraternal twins!
Girl and a boy!

They were showered with treasures and so very deserving!
The sweetest of families~

These little outfits will only fit them for a short time~
They will forever fit their favorite teddy bears!

When I saw that they had white Onesies on their gift registry
I knew could have some fun with them!
There is an owl tucked in her collection &
I kept most of his illustrations nautical themed.

They can wear them...
Have them made into their first T-Shirt quilt...
Keep them for always~

I cut some of my Finch & Friends flannel fabric in pink for her!
(Red Rooster Fabrics) 
Blue in the same two patterns for the little fella~

The twins have a large & beautiful family & the most amazing friends.
Oodles of loving arms just waiting to hold them!

Precious little hearts~

Hope your week is off to a great start, Friends!
