….here is my progress being made
on the first of a series of 4 new punch needle designs ~
I'm calling the series
and within this series there will be 4 separate designs:
"Keeping the Bees"
"Dipping the Candles"
this one below is
working in my favorite palette of threads from
Valdani, DMC & Weeks Dye Works…
see my make-do farmwife thread ball/string holder?
it's made from a small glass jelly jar
...that Peter punched a hole in for me to use while I punch :)
I like to work at the small table in the back of our keeping room ~
the natural light is great from two windows.
...plus I get to visit with Peaches, our parrot, and Barbara, our parakeet ~
they talk to me while I work :)
a happy little spot to while-away the hours
doing what I love…
any kind of needlework! ha!!
the back of my work looks almost like braiding, doesn't it?
this house was punched entirely with Valdani #8 pearl cottons…
the work below, was punched with Weeks Dye Works, Valdani & DMC…
I love how all the different threads look together as friendly neighbors :)
will finish this one and begin the next asap ~
excited to show you all 4 finished designs!
...have a blessed Easter Weekend my friends!
