Snail's pace

"Snail's pace"
Good Thursday afternoon to everyone.

I hope your weather has been as beautiful as it's been in Pittsburgh...just gorgeous!

I've finally got my yard in shape and feel I'm finally catching up on all the chores!

This week I was able to take a few breaks between chores to punch this wonderful picture of a snail....just to remind myself to slow down a bit and enjoy the simple things in life!

It is a three strand punch, using DMC only! 
It measures 9" high by 6 3/4" wide.
It is now available in my cottage Etsy shop:

Happy Fourth of July,
Kate
