You probably know by now that I love Polly Minick’s patterns…. especially her American Summer designs (click here). I’ve punched her Moby Dick pattern before…
This is one of my favorites. I just love the simplicity of it… don’t you, Lilly?…
lilly? is that you under there?
Lilly is usually a lover of Polly Minick designs…..
“did you say polly minick?” ~lilly
Ah ha! I knew Lilly’d come out for Polly! Of course, sometimes Lilly needs a wakeup call…
Ellis is the busy-lizzie here-abouts.
In addition to Polly’s Moby Dick, I also put together a few others…
This, “Up North” pillow is stuffed with lavender. I don’t know about anywhere else in the USA, but in Michigan, if you’re going on vacation May~October, you’re goin’, “up north”!
to the beach
Randy and I used to have a place, “up north” and we had a sign just like this, pointing friends in the direction of, “the beach”. This piece was inspired by Polly’s designs and by my own….what do you guys think? should we go to the beach?….
“are you kidding?” lilly, ellis, otis
After all, it is only March and this is what March on the beach looks like ’round here….

I altered this Polly Minick pattern a bit, but love it just the same…. here’s the back…
I mounted the finished embroidery on a piece of found wood and added a tiny pocket to the back. Here’s what the lighthouse down the road from our house actually looks like in March…

It may be only March, but I am ready for summer! How about you?
