Color Crush: Mustard Yellow & Coral Pink

Color Crush: Mustard Yellow & Coral Pink

 Perhaps it’s the fact that we’re emerging from months of gray skies and white landscapes, but I'm loving saturated yellow hues this spring. I spotted this sunny yellow sofa on Pinterest the other day, and thought it would be the perfect intensity to pair wth my coral star quilt in shades of peach, pink and the darkest navy blue.  If you’re not quite sure you can commit to this much yellow, try the shade in accessories like throw pillows, display bowls or small furniture pieces.  Yellow pairs especially well with pink and cream, neutrals like grey and navy, and looks beautiful with natural woods and shiny gold accents.

I love the look and feel of cozy and colourful quilts scattered around my house, but sometimes I just want to take my quilts out into the world. Since it’s not quite socially-acceptable to show up at work wrapped in a giant throw quilt, I did the next best thing- a quilted jacket!

November 01, 2019

This month I was featured in an article by Chatelaine Magazine on bringing punch needle into your home décor. The article touches on the current trend of punch needle, its history, and profiles a number of talented punch needle artists selling patterns, supplies, and finished work. Writer Iris Benaroia interviewed me for the article and included a great little write-up of me and my work. I love the quote she included of me describing punch needle as “the least frustrating craft I’ve ever tried”. Perfectly summed up!

Free Pattern: Punch Needle Grapefruit

October 05, 2019

Today I’m sharing a free pattern with you: my punch needle grapefruit! This is one of the first things I made with my punch needle and is a great project for beginners.

When you’re done punching your grapefruit you could turn it into a stuffie like I did (‘cause who doesn’t need a plush grapefruit to snuggle with?) or fill in the background and turn it into a wall-hanging.
