Bittersweet And Pokeberry...

Punch Needle and Wool Applique by Rose Clay at

Wool Applique and Punch Needle Embroidery...
Two of my favorite things, brought together in one design !

This mixed media piece uses 
Valdani variegated Perle Cotton Thread along with
rich, yummy shades of hand dyed wool fabric
in plaids, windowpanes and solids,
for the leaves.

Bittersweet and pokeberry curl around a white pumpkin.
I love white pumpkins.  Maybe it is their calming,
creamy neutral shades, that commands attention.

I always dream 
of doing an all white Autumn display... 
(but then when the actual time draws near, 
I can't resist all of the spicey colors !)
Hmmm...maybe this year.

Welcome Sweet September !


  1. Oh my......just go ahead & pack up my kit!!!! This is gorgeous!!!!!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous colors and design; and well your punching is perfect! I'd have unruly threads popping up from catching them with the needle. You always make things look so easy to do.

  3. I love the combination of wool applique and punchneedle embroidery. Never seen it before but it makes a gorgeous piece.

  4. I think this one is just so pretty. Did you grow any white pumpkins this year? I love your colors that you chose. Those colors are so rich.
    I do love fall.

  5. I do love all those yummy fall colors! A lovely creation!

  6. How cute those little loops are. Still haven't tried punching and may never get to it. I love the white pumpkins too but those odd flat light green and apricot are closing in.

  7. This one is lovely! love the white pumpkin and all the colors you put together. I want to try this one.

  8. Oh, they go great together. Such talent...sigh.
    Hugs :)

  9. Wow! Love this piece! Looking forward to seeing the finish! Difficult to chose a favorite pumpkin color.... I say the more the merrier! :-)


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