I like to move between different mediums
of fiber art. It seems each feeds my
creative spirit in a different way.
Wool Applique and Punch Needle
are at the top of my list.
But I also like Rug Hooking and Hand Embroidery.
I'm happiest when I can do all of these things
with some balance.
I've been working on a beautiful,
old fashioned Philphlot design.
A Philphlot is a swirled design that can be
carved in wood, punched in tin, painted onto a surface
or, as in these applications,
pieced together in wool applique or
completed as a punch needle project.
'Tulip and Philphlot'
is an adaptation of a design on a
Pennsylvania painted dower chest,
I am offering this design in both
with detailed directions unique to each pattern.

It is a bit nippy cold here in Pennsylvania.
We woke up to 26 degrees at 5 a.m.
~ A perfect day for something warm and nourishing ~
I'm thinking a big kettle of
Creamy Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom
Tortellini Soup for dinner this evening.
And...if I have time, homemade rolls...
(a recipe from my neighbor, Theresa - Thank You !)

Enjoy the start to your week !
