This Folksy Flower Charm Cushion
was punched using
Valdani Variegated Perle Cotton Thread
on Maple Cream Weavers Cloth.
Don't you just love all the different shades of green
in the leaves ? All from one ball of variegated Perle Cotton.
Valdani #M19 - Olives
Scalloped Blanket Stitch and French Knots
A few embroidery stitches added...
I 'squared up' the Weavers Cloth and
Blanket Stitched it onto a hand dyed houndstooth wool.
Every time I use Valdani Thread,
I smile. How can you not love all the gorgeous
shading that just "shows up" when you punch ??
Their variegated thread line does the shading work for you !
It couldn't be easier.

While choosing pumpkins at a nearby farm,
we were being watched. Her name is Rosie.
Isn't she beautiful ? She is enjoying Autumn, too !

Many thanks to all of the wonderful people who
showed up for the Artisans' Porchwalk, this past weekend !
Yes, it poured rain and it was c.o.l.d.
But, somehow we got through the weekend.
The shoppers who braved the weather
were serious shoppers on a mission
and knew just what they wanted ;)
The plus side to the weekend...
The owners of the homes with the porches,
provide meals, snacks and drinks to
the vendors, all throughout the day.
Our host is THE most amazing cook.
We were pampered and well fed.
Enjoy your day Friends...
