Please sit down, I have an announcement...I finished, finished a punch needle project. Yay!! I finished this cute little bunny several months ago and the box sometime in April when I was practicing my painting technique. WA LA...I found the perfect recipient. Put it together, filled it with some truffles, and I had a going-away gift!
If I remember correctly, most of the threads are over dyes from Victorian Motto Shoppe. Nancy has such pretty colors. The chenille around the punch needle is hand-dyed by Lois over at Elegant Stitch. It is perfect for this project! The box was just a plain, light-weight wooden box from Michael's that I painted and distressed. No wax on this one...
I have a few flower pictures. To be honest, it has been over 100 degrees the past four days, so my flowers bloom and crisp on the same day. I managed to get one gladiola picture.
There was one beautiful white bloom that lasted less than two hours, just too hot.
Several years ago, I found this poor little cactus pot at a yard sale. It didn't look like much, but I brought it home, gave it a tiny bit of water and every year, this is my reward...
I really like the coral flowers.
Its next door (pot) neighbor is a bunny cactus. Loved the name, just had to have it! If you look carefully, you will notice a few new "bunny ears". LOL
I am now heading outside to do a little hand watering. My irises are really parched and I'm still holding out hope that a few of the gladiolas I planted in the spring will give me blooms. Have a wonderful weekend. Be kind to one another.
