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.

My friend Danielle (who also makes the sweetest art illustrations for kids), came to one of my punch needle workshops this spring. She had never needle punched before, but brought her own sketch and made this adorable little fox. After Danielle was finishing punching her fox on a stretcher bar frame, she asked me to help her turn her project into a little pillow. I though I’d share the process in a blog post, because people can’t get enough of these plush punch needle projects!

Starter punch needle kits are now in the shop! I realize this probably should have been the first kit I offered, but hey- better late than never, right?  I put this kit together because the right materials are so important to the success of your punch needle project (hello tension!), and gathering all these supplies often means buying from many different places.

When we purchased our 130-year-old fixer-upper for a bargain five years ago, we went giddy with renovations. New kitchen, updated bathrooms, refinished floors, painted walls- almost every room got a fresh start. But then we ran out of steam (and, um, money). Five years later, our long and narrow front hall is still painted primer white, has no trim or mouldings, and is generally a dumping ground for stuff that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.
