Teeny, tiny snowshoes

Tiny, Tiny Snowshoes

 Just another punchneedle work, complete with miniature footwear.
This time we have a snowshoe hare wearing snowshoes and a wee pair of handmade snowshoes.

It is still very much Winter here.  The temperatures have been in the low single digits in the morning and staying below 20 during the day.

 Oh My!  It has been a long time since my last post.
I seem to think that everyone else has so much more of interest to share than I do. I visit many creative blogs.
BUT, blogging is not a contest of who can do it best (is it?).  
So, for those of you who might check my blog to see what I have been doing, I apologize for the long absence.

Here is a peek at what I have been creating lately. 
 I have become completely smitten with punch needle work.
It doesn't surprise me that I am charmed by this needlework.  It involves thousands of tiny little punches of thread to create an image.
One thing I do know about myself is that I am someone who likes to work small.  Something about miniature, wee little creations makes my heart sing.

So, this is my latest.  It is 9" tall in total.  The punch needle work is 5.25" x 4" and the tiny lttle wool ice skates are 2" x 1.5"

Like I said, "Wheee...."
