~"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn." ~Henry David Thoreau

~Patterns & Floss Kits Now Available~


~The Snow Fell Fast And The Wind Blew Wild~ The Gruffalo's Child.

This has certainly been the case here in Vermont these last two day.  The storm blew in on Tuesday evening and it has just, in the last hour, departed.  We were near blizzard conditions and I must say I can not recall such a bitter cold, howling wind.   I am truly beginning to wonder if Spring is holding off until June.  We are usually well into sugaring season by this date and we've not boiled an ounce.  It's quite unusual to be sure.  But alas, we are dreaming of Spring nonetheless.  


And..speaking of Spring...

The Patterns, both paper and PDF, and the Pattern/Floss Kit's for my new punch needle design ~Spring Thyme In Olde New England~ are now available on My Website and In My Etsy Shoppe.  I am SO very pleased with this design.  I have a great love for birds and it makes me so happy to finally be able to bring them to "life" through punch needle.


This sweet folky bird is done in warm earth tones amidst a lovely soft spring setting. The entire piece is done in a mixture of gorgeous Valdani, Variegated, Solid & Three Strand Floss. 


Stop by for a visit, should you have the time and ..any thoughts of doing a bit of punch needle :)


I'm off now to make a lemon meringue pie..oh goodness, I have been craving this so much lately!!
