Punch needle whale & dolphins~

"Down by the Sea" copyright Michelle L. Palmer

He is swimming with the dolphins today...
Sir Whale is finished & ready for framing!

"Flow Blue Skeps" copyright Michelle L. Palmer
Is just home from the frame shop...
Framed with museum glass (zero glare) to protect
the colors and keep it preserved.
Sherry's Bear & Frame Shop in Seneca Falls

Sharing Sir Whale's progress (backwards...)

I use all cotton floss...
Six strands & three strands.

His coat of many colors...

I sketch my design lightly in pencil and then add some contour lines
with three strands... then I start filling in and painting with strings!

'Sir Whale' was his name before I started adding color...
As I was stitching along I was humming, "Down by the Sea..."
Still hum it when I see it!

Hope you have a wonderful week, Sweet Friends!

I am so excited that you have your designs to purchase on etsy. I just found this needle punch kit at the dollar store nothing exciting. I thought what do I do next seems micheals doesn't carry anything. I not talented enough to draw myself. I'm from an Island in Canada. I love the whale. My Pop is a veteran so I want to do the Poppy! Amazing work. I hope mine comes out half as good as yours.
