Happy New Year!

Some of my favorites wishing you a creative New Year!

I hope your hearts are filled with fresh & unique ideas~

I hope your arms are filled with supplies that inspire you~

I hope your days allow you time to work on your favorite hobbies~

Wishing you happiness, love, peace & laughter~

It is such a joy to still find buttons in antique & thrift shops!

Sometimes the most amazing ideas started as daydreams!

Thank you, Friends for all the joy you share with me!

O Christmas Tree~

It is so nice to have a blanket of white on the ground~
Time for the land & crops to rest and picture perfect!

A country drive is always a favorite pastime...
Just up the road from our home is our favorite tree farm!

Snow was floating down softly,  like feathers falling~
Look at all of those babies!
Wrapping the hills as far as the eye can see! (even on a clear day)

They're in their 20's now... but walking behind them brings back
25 years of tree-gathering memories.
Little ones toddling through trees their height~ playing hide & seek.
Little hands hugging 15' giants...
Sitting on the trunk and being carried out~

Some years it has been so warm we were in t-shirts...
Other years there has been so much rain we've been up to
our ankles in mud, slipping & sliding~

Our daughter LOVES wee little trees~
I tend to choose trees that are far too tall for our home!

Baby trees here and there~ replenishing...

We found one!
Wishing you and yours a joy-filled season~

Punch Needle Snowman

"March of the Christmas Geese!"
Copyright 2017 Michelle L. Palmer

These friends need to get out of town...
Christmas is just around the corner and some
will be searching for the perfect bird for their Holiday meal!
Our snow friend is taking a trip to the lake with them!

I love to add texture to my punch needle pieces~
By changing the loop lengths an ordinary coat becomes corduroy!

Wishing your heart every joy of this beautiful season, Friends!

Friday, December 1

No pins in these so they're ornaments, cupboard hangers, bowl fillers... little pillows...
Teddy bears love to cuddle with them~

Hope you have an awesome weekend, Friends!


December has arrived in all its beauty~
Frosty mornings...
Sherbet colored sunrises & sunsets...
Songbirds dancing around the feeders...
Geese coming in from the lake...

Greens draped, lights strung & wreaths welcome.

The gardens are buttoned up for their winter rest~
Brilliant red cardinals peek through the pine branches!
Their songs even more crisp & clear~

Wishing your hearts a joy-filled December!
