Harvest Moon~

'Harvest Moon' Copyright 2017 Michelle L. Palmer

We have been enjoying several weeks of mild weather.
Beautiful sunny days & clear starry nights...
Walking the pup without a flashlight when the night sky lights the way~

That is what inspired this friendly moon~
Walking past pumpkin fields as the sun is setting.
Harvest beauties silhouetted against the sherbet orange sky.

Moon shining down on roadside pumpkins for sale~

Hope your Autumn days are filled with beauty, Friends!

Applique snowman stocking~

A little Christmas stocking to share with you~
We had our first frost & cold winds are beginning to blow!

Made my little snow friend from wool~
You can use what ever fabrics & stitches you're comfortable with.
The paper pattern is below.
~Personal use only, please~

Gift cards are perfect at times.
I like to dress them up a bit by making unique holders!
Something that can be kept to hang on the tree or cupboard pull.
I'm trying to start early this year...
I'll share more as I finish them~

It's a snap!

Twine, craft hemp or jute for arms!

I traced the pieces for the pattern before I began stitching~
Cut 2 stocking pieces & blanket stitch them together
after you applique your snowman to the front piece.
Feel free to use the paper pattern for your personal use.
I didn't add a scarf to my snow friend but did add a shape for your choice.

He will dress up the season~

Wishing your heart every happiness, Friends!

Deb Jochim fills her publications with goodness!

the Instant Antique spray~

This happy fella was on the cover of PNPS Fall 2017 
He has some vegetables & seasonal decorations to deliver
for a meat-free Thanksgiving dinner (giggle)

I have so much fun with punch needle~
Hope you do to, Friends!

Wishing you a harvest season filled with goodness~
