Ahhhh Spring!



I've spent some time translating Spring into punchneedle over the past couple of months. I think this one is my very favorite, so far.



Periwinkle blue and a green the shade of the newest leaves outside my window, bring this Spring kite to life.

Evening Sky


Beauty at the end of the day.  Beauty as the sun hits the clouds through the barren tree branches and balances itself behind the hills.



This is truly the time to 'walk in beauty'.  



My heart beats a bit faster, standing here, looking out at all of this vast and wonderful glory.

Uh Oh!

You can see that a bit of autumn has crept into my studio. Do you think it slipped in through a crack at the bottom of the door?

In truth -- I wanted to use these buttons and had trouble finding the right floss shades, so just went with what I had. 

At least I was pleased with the loop levels of and the design.

Morning Sky


Washing dishes can often be a great joy to me.  The window over the kitchen sink faces into the woods.  There is always something wonderful to look at but...



...this day I was greeted by the sun shining on puffs of clouds turning them all pink and gold and orange.  

To begin my day in this manner is a gift.

Seeking Joy




I have so much joy to be thankful for.  Rising above myself and the 'every day 'stuff' I hope to soar.  Perhaps I can hitch a ride on a kite?  



I want to seek joy wherever it might be found, but especially in 'the small stuff'.   I want to accept each moment and all of my own foibles with joy and a smile.
