Fall stitching....there's just something about it. The coolness of the air, the beautiful Autumn colors...bittersweet, olive, gold and brandy. It's always so exciting to make a new start. This is what will be in my stitching hands today. I can't wait to see how this takes shape. I love the linen, which is Lakeside Lentil and I'm pretty thrilled with my color pallet too. There may be a change here or there, usually is, but this looks to be a good starting point.
I've been taking it pretty easy lately and I have to admit I've really been enjoying my down time. I've been playing in the studio and getting ready for the next Primitive Handmades Merc. update, which will be on the evening of the 17th. I've really had fun and have quite a few things to list....
But, I've also taken up learning to do punch needle. I have to say it was quite frustrating a first, but once I asked lots of questions of those in the know and kept at it, it's turned into something I really enjoy. I can see myself having a punch project going at all times. It's a nice change, very different from cross stitch and goes pretty quickly.
For my first try, I decided to just draw out a simple design. A Prim flower with a few tongues surrounding it seemed easy enough. Here's my piece in progress.
Well, I'd better get stitching...I'll be back soon to show you the pretties I've made for my PHM update.
Enjoy your week and as always, Happy Stitching my friends!
