**At the foot of Round Mountain, tucked in among the graceful Maples, sits a cozy brown house, smoke billows from the chimney 8 months out of the year, a river rambles nearby, sheep & Cows graze in the meadows and turkey's forage nearby. Here you will find me...surrounded by wool & cotton threads, hoops & needles on my lap & sketchpads scattered about.**

~Taking My Line For A Walk~

"A drawing is simply a line going for a walk."
Paul Klee. 

Goode day to you.  I do apologize for my late greeting this positively beautiful, snow filled morning.  My time was taken up with my sketch book working on new punch needle patterns as well as new moppet characters.  Goodness, I am having so much fun.  I am quite thrilled this morning as I just signed up for a drawing course.  I would like to give my work a little more polish therefore, I think classes are a step in the right direction :).  Now..I've a house to tidy, orders to pack and run to the post office and then back home and into the studio I go :)

I leave you with this photo from mine & Olivers walk this morning.  Another fresh layer of snow fell overnight, my favorite kind of snow.  One that settles itself softly on everything in site transforming our landscape into a magical world of beauty.

                                                   Wishing you a merry day, :)Doreen

It looks like cotton puffs, so pretty. It just started to flurry here and from the sounds of the weatherman's prediction for tomorrow we should see heavy snow. LET IT SNOW!

Have a cozy day.

I'm hoping it's not much longer before you will be selling Valdani #8. I only have a couple of the colors you used for Love Grows in #12, so will wait. I have a feeling I'm gonna like the #8 a little better. Beautiful pic ... it does look like cotton balls.

My floss arrived for "Love Grows" and i hope to find some quiet time tonight to start punching your beautiful design.
Thank you for the little juice glass idea.. My Golden "Monty" is a ball chaser. ;0) and i have been in need of an excuse to pull out the 3 lovely little violet etched juice glasses i found at an estate sale...Can't set a table with just 3 ..so this is a perfect excuse to use and inspiration to punch some violet tussles.
Thanks again.. Wishing you a lovely Tuesday ((hugs)) Misi
