Earth Day & Today~

I always try to sneak in a nature walk on Earth Day.
We had grey skies yesterday... nobody told the flowers!
They were just as happy & brilliant as always~

A true Springtime~
Color is slowly opening up.

The sweetest faces!

On a warmer day the pussy willows would be humming with bees!

This is today.
It looks like fairy dust!

Angry fairy dust~

My dad always called late Spring snow,
"Poor man's fertilizer."
(Every little bit of Nitrogen helps)
I think he was trying to find the silver lining~
When the flowers are ready for warmth... so am I!

Wishing you a beautiful day, Sweet Friends~

Along with favorite feathered friends!

Bits and pieces of inspiration~
Chipped... stained... mismatched & LOVED!

Happy Spring!

It's okay that most of the day was filled with snow flurries...
It's okay that they have posted concerns for large storm next Friday...
It is officially Spring!
The migrating birds and the buds peeking through know...
They are ready for the season to change!
~So am I~
Beautiful blossoms & bees will be here soon!

Wishing you a beautiful Springtime!

Hearts sharing...

A song in your heart...

A hop in your step!
Wishing your hearts all this and so much more~

Flow Blue... punch needle project!

While taking a break from studio orders I started planning...


"Flow Blue..." will be my newest punch needle piece. 
I know it will have royal blue!
I know it will have sunshine yellow!

I really just wanted an excuse to paint in French Ultramarine,
Ultramarine Light and Ultramarine Deep!
I will share bits and pieces of "Flow Blue..." soon~

Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!

Punch needle projects

After working in the studio all day it is fun to play~

Punch needle is delightful!

I love the texture.
The aged feel.
Folk... prim... early... but new!

This little sparrow influenced my 'Valentine Tea'

This little chickadee influenced my 'Love Song'

This gorgeous blue floss is influencing my 'Flow Blue' design!
It would be neat to make a long rectangle...

I will keep you posted!
Hope you have a wonderful week, Sweet Friends!

Valentine hearts...

 My studio is cool in the winter~

After dinner I bring projects to the living room and
cozy up beneath fuzzy blankets!

Here a stitch... there a stitch...

January has been passing quickly~
We will soon hear the hum of bees in the flowers!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!
Wishing your heart every joy~

Little pencil sketch...

From one of my fabric illustrations!
I wasn't courageous enough to add ALL of those words~

Working on special orders and Etsy pieces by day...
When the natural light rests for the day I will retire to the living room
with a hot cup of tea and my little Chickadee friend!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
