Craggy Tree Limbs...

Punchneedle tree

I have been drawing and punching 
craggy, twisted and forked limbs.

Variegated Valdani Perle Cotton 
is perfect for bringing texture and life 
to an old, craggy tree !

Getting ready to punch a night sky...

Hmmm, so many choices.

Mountain Hike ~ Black Night  
Dark Periwinkle
It is amazing to see these three colors,
when they are punched.
They are so different 
than what I would expect...
all would make a lovely night sky.

Curvy and curled tree limbs 
in Wool Applique.
Almost all of this wool has been repurposed
from thrift store skirts.

"Accept - then act.
Whatever the present moment contains, 
accept it as if you had chosen it.
Always work with it,
not against it...
This will transform your life."
