A Little Punchy......(292)

Today's Stroll piece is a little departure from my usual first..and only....attempt at punch needle. The design is from Pep'r Pot and I did it in 2004 after we had Charlotte Dudney teach at Twisted Threads. It remains unfinished as I just don't know what to do with it!

 I worked on my recent class piece from Milady's Needle and only have to complete the nun stitch before I can attach it to the spool. Gloria has us doing the nun stitch upside down with the "legs" facing towards the design rather than away. I opted to stitch the spider webs in black rather than white as I thought they showed up better.

 I'm off to a meeting of the Virginia Guild of Needlewomen today for a class to make a scissor fob.....hope to share that tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!




  1. I like your punchneedle finish. You have made good progress on the Milady's Needle class piece. Enjoy your guild meeting!

  2. Oh your punchneedle is so very cute and colorful. I have yet to try it, but I will some day.

  3. I like the spiderwebs in black much better too, green with envy your getting to take another class!:)

  4. Punchneedle - that's different! Was it fun to do? I like the pumpkins (now there's a surprise, right?) Not sure how big it is, but might it finish into a mug rug?

    The spool cover (is that what I should call it?) is fun and looks great - spiders and black cats, yay!

  5. Nice article great post comment information thanks for sharing.
