Punch needle pattern~

"Feathered Folk" copyright 2018 Michelle L. Palmer
This little bird that my husband sketched brings a smile to my heart.
The little bit of folk that I can't seem to come up with on my own.
No matter how prim I tried to keep the colors~
They became Palmer-like! (giggle)

Wool hooked rug~ It looked plum at first... then rose... then...
Oh goodness, more and more girly.

This is my treasured sketch~ from years (and years) ago.

This is my fifth wool hooked project~
Love it more and more with every loop set.
I have joined our local Rug Hooking Guild... met the neatest gals!
I have signed up to participate in my first Hook In!

See... it did start off manly and prim-colored.
Then it became all Michelle-like!
Maybe I should have put bumble bees or stars
in the background instead of flowers! 

I know Feathered Folk will show up in more projects~
We'll get him to look more manly!

Hope March is off to a great start, Friends!
Thank you for stopping by~

I love the feminine take on it, Michelle. I have never tried that kind of needle work but I love it. xo Diana

This is a gorgeous pattern and of course I love your husband's sketch! I should publish some of my husband's drawings, which I envy because they are totally folky, which I work hard to accomplish!

NanaDiana~ I really enjoy punch needle & rug hooking, find them very relaxing. Thank you!
Debra~ Yes! No matter how hard I try I cannot get a folky-look to my illustrations... our husbands could write pattern books together! (giggle) Thank you, Sweet Friend!
