Grandma's House Punchneedle...

Grandma's House Punchneedle design

I am working on Grandma's House...
A little cottage with a rounded door and 
shingled roof.
A place filled with warm memories.

A cottage nestled in pines...
 using variegated Valdani 
in Withered Green and Green Pastures.

Variegated Valdani Perle Cotton Thread #8

And, is Black 'black' ?
My new favorite is Valdani Perle Cotton
O511 - Black Sea.
Because black is not just black.
Black Sea is a variegated Perle Cotton
that has an almost dark antique flavor to it.
It is beautiful in punchneedle projects.

Soft blue shades using Valdani
Seaside and Vanilla Sky.
Muted green shades in Wintergreen Mint
and Silver Foam.

Enjoy your weekend !



  1. With all this cool, silver and mint with a splash of dark... you have me thinking of the Peppermint Patties that were always in a dish at my Grandma's house! :-)

  2. Just lovely Rose. I think I would love that black too. I love that design. The trees are great.
    I am glad you are getting some stitching done. I was going to do that today, and instead I cleaned flowerbeds. :) My zinnias needed to look pretty without weeds. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Oh Rose you're killing me here with all that beautiful perle cotton.


  4. Such a sweet design. Have a nice weekend.

  5. Oh so very cool! Can't wait to see the progress on this one : )

  6. I think I see a new favorite!! The trees are awesome! I can't wait!


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