~ Second in the Motto Series ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

a bit cloudy today, but we are holding out for warmer temps on the way here soon :)
was hoping to bring my needlework outside to the patio,
 but I guess that will have to wait…

I am finishing up the second design in my series of 'motto' punch needle projects..
this one is 
'More Wool Please" ~



 again 
I'm using a combination of Valdani #8 pearl cotton threads 
with DMC threads {all 6 strands}




the white background is DMC ~ the lettering & 'points' are Valdani…
{had to add a little purple in there}




 I enjoy punch needle ~ 
it's rhythm soothes me!





will share more photos soon…



it's coming along nicely,
 and this will have the same finish as the previous motto design below:

"Keep Goode Company"

I can't believe the 
is only NINE days away!!!!

Joan & I are so excited to be a part of this again ~
we can't wait to see all of you and meet new friends too!
