After too many fiasco's with three dimensional punch needle I have made a U turn and gone back to using other artists designs and following their directions and their paths.

Its quite freeing to know that all I have to do is fill in the spaces of a drawing on Weaver's Cloth using colors chosen by someone else or of my own choosing -- but with no thought except to do careful stitching and watch the design appear beneath my fingers.

I've also discovered a Punch Needle periodical called "Punch Needle and Primitive Stitcher".  Each issue includes several patterns that I can follow and complete.

This all takes me back to the hours I would spend as a young child, laying on the floor, coloring in my coloring books, humming and happy!

"Don't ever rule out the option of U-turn in your life, because one day you will need it!  The moment you realize you are going in the wrong direction, turn to the right direction instantly, with a beautiful U-turn."

A Color Filled World

Over the past few weeks I've been absorbed with color. 

I have been experimenting with color, using the combinations that I see all around me.  I want to thank Pamela Zagarenski the artist of www.SACREDBEE.com. Her cards are delicious tutors when it comes to the lovely colorful, yet soft combinations she uses.

In fact I recently took a bunch of her cards with me to the fabric shop where I used her colors when choosing floss for my next project.  What fun!!!

What colors do you find yourself using these days?
