'Rolling Hills' Punch Needle Design by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com - in 'Studio/Shop'

Rolling Green Hills and 
Climbing Honeysuckle Vines...

Shortly after getting married, I took a job
as a nurse at a hospital that was 
nestled in the side of a hill.
It was a beautiful setting that 
overlooked the rolling farmland.
Directly in front of the hospital was a 
steep hill that was smothered in honeysuckle.
I can still remember each evening,
at the end of my shift, 
walking to my car with the heavy scent
of honeysuckle hanging in the air.
I have the fondest memories of that time.

'Rolling Hills' is finished into a wool pillow
and is edged with wool ruching.
Punched with Valdani Perle Cotton, 
however a DMC conversion is also included.

Pattern available at...
'Rolling Hills'.

Wool Strawberry Pincushion by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

Strawberry season is here,
and I couldn't be happier.
I'm dreaming of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie,
Strawberries dipped in sour cream 
and brown sugar, fresh Strawberry sundaes,
Strawberry baked oatmeal, Strawberry pancakes
and fresh from the field berries.

Enjoy your early Summer, my Friends !
