The Old Fashioned Pansy punch needle design by Rose Clay at - Blog

~  Purple  ~

Valdani Perle Cotton Thread in shades of purple

I love the color purple in all of it's
various shades...
Mulberry Grape ~ Horizon Storm
Iris Petals ~ Ripened Plum
Mauve Orchid 

Each Autumn I plant crocus bulbs 
in portions of the lawn.  Wishing and hoping
to be rewarded with tiny purple blooms
to welcome Spring.  The temps are climbing
and these tiny gems are breaking through
the soft ground.  Their color is my inspiration
for a new design I am working on.
