Blue Paisley ...

I love paisley...
my imagination runs free with 
all of those wisps, curls and 'seussical' shapes.
(Dr. Seuss-like shapes ;)

I experimented with depth setting on this piece.
The paisley design is punched 
with an "Ultra Punch" punchneedle 
set on depth setting #2.
The background is punched on depth setting #1.

Moving the depth setting to #1 for the background,
gives the Paisley Design a very subtle 
"stand out" quality.

Punched while watching the Olympic Games...

'Seaside Fancy' Punch Needle Embroidery

I love the fresh "watery" colors.
'Seaside Fancy' is approximately
8.5 inches x 6.75 inches

'Seaside Fancy' 
is now available in the Studio 
and for retailers through my Distributors.

A glimpse of my next project...

"To achieve great things,
two things are needed:
a plan and not quite enough time."
Leonard Bernstein

Enjoy your day !


  1. My grandma was a seamstress back in the 60's and she loved paisley. Beautiful work and I like the peek you shared with us of your new project, too.

  2. Seaside Fancy is lovely.....and your next project looks fantastic, too! Can't wait to see it! And thanks for that great quote from Leonard gave me quite a good laugh! :o)

  3. I'm trying to remember if I've ever seen what kind of frame you use for your punching. Just wondering since your pieces often run on the larger size. I'm always a sucker for paisley designs Rose and this new one is so beautiful - the colors are definitely 'watery' like you mentioned. Love it!

  4. I'm gonna have to get a second job!!! I really like the idea of different settings on the paisley but the sneak peek alphabet scares me!! Lol. I'm not that good yet but I'll give it a try!!

  5. Seaside Fancy is a fun piece...happy suessical shapes :)

    Your new project looks the houndstooth border (?)

    Hope you are having a great week!

  6. As's beautiful Rose. I still see the whale in there.


  7. As always just a treat for the eyes. It makes me so happy to see your happy designs. I love the whimsical shapes.


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
