A Passion for Punch: Part Three

A Calendar Hanger for Summer

By: Project by Simone Vojvodin

Oh, how sweet these summer days are, filled with some of my favorite things like flowers and sunshine, camping and gardening, iced tea and bare feet!

I wander in the garden listening to the pollinators busy at work; the expression “busy as bee” is certainly accurate! Those little fellows never seem to stop. Their gentle droning as they go about their work acts as a lullaby, increasing the lazy moods that come on hot, hazy days. The honey bees are single-mindedly determined, and the chubby, fuzzy bumblebees make me smile as they bumble about in their endearing clumsy manner.

These buzzing friends perfectly represent summer, and what better way to depict them than to replicate their round velvety bodies and the curves of an old-fashioned hive with two different sculpting techniques.

Oxford punch needles come in eight different sizes and we are going to explore the use of the five Fine punch needles to create the extra depth and dimension. If you don’t want to sculpt, or only have one needle, please don’t fret! The design will look great simply punched.
