Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was a fun one.

Thanks to Super Mom - No Cape! we have another Vintage Monday and Stitchery Link Party.  This was my attempt at punch needle. It was an OK experience, but I doubt I'll do it again. I didn't make the designs myself, the pattern was stamped onto a piece of cloth. I provided the DMC floss.

Art Nouveau Punch Needle Pillows 12 x 7.5 inches - Punch Needle Designs 8.5 x 3.5 inches

Now - a little surprise. We have about 25 acres in hay, some woods and trails on our 52 acre farm. We try very hard to keep it "wildlife refuge", so we see a LOT of deer, coyotes, wild turkeys, fox, the occasional skunk (yuk), rabbits - we even had some mountain goats in our front yard once. Most likely escapees from someone's farm, but there they were - horns and all.

It's not unusual to see momma does and their fawns. Twins are not that unusual, but look what our trail camera caught a picture of in our back hayfield!!

 Momma and Triplets!!

Momma, Triplets and another Doe Grazing


  1. Very pretty pillows! I like the Art Nouveau designs are lovely! :) x

  2. Aww I love your photos of the deer, it looks so peaceful!

  3. Oh I like your punchneedle pillows Kim.
    Yay! I shared your deer photos with Emerson. He is impressed with your land. So am I! Very pretty my friend.

  4. I've never tried punch needle, but your little pillows are lovely!
    I love the sweet deer and her triplets! I would imagine that is a little bit rare!

  5. how amazing Kim to be able to see all those animals from your those Deer, they look very contented on your land!
    Well done on the punch needle work - must say I have a kit but have yet to get around to giving it a go...

  6. Thank-you for the lovely pictures, I just Pinned them.


  7. How cute, the triplets. We often had deer in the yard while I was growing up, close enough to spit on if I wanted haha. I used to mimic the sounds they made and thoroughly confused them. :D

    Cute pillows. I have a punchneedle kit but have yet to attempt it.

  8. I haven't tried the punch needle before, love your pillows and the colors you used!, it's amazing to see wild animals, you were so lucky, they're lovely!!!

  9. Lovely finishes! I know what you mean, I've tried punch needle and really don't see myself doing it again. Look at those sweet deer! :D

  10. Your punchneedle embroidery pillows are both so pretty. Punch needle is one thing I haven't tried.

    That is going to be one busy momma dear nursing those triplets!

    Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for linking back. Aloha hugs!
