More conversation on punching plus some new finishes.

Well, I’m determined to stay current in adding posts and since I will be leaving for Hollywood Beach, Florida on Thursday with my son, daughter-in-law and beautiful baby, Claudia Simone, I’d better do a post today. I am so excited to spend 5 days with my 4-month-old grandchild (ok, my kids too) as well as visit Florida for the first time.

In the last post we talked about trying to estimate how much thread you need. Here are two photos of Primitive Betty’s freebie doodle. I had estimated three skeins of ecru for the background. I actually used close to 4 skeins. I tend to lean towards darker muted colors, so the ecru background shown in the first photo was too bright. The second photo shows the same piece with a walnut crystal stain applied.  The pieces look quite different and show you options that you have.

The little crow on a whisk broom is a design by Shawn Williams and comes from Punch Needle Primitive Stitches 2016 Spring issue. I came up with the Ye Olde Tavern to represent a 1700s tavern sign. I decided to just use a piece of jute for hanging these pieces. What do you think?

The Olde Goat is a Lori Brechlin design that also came from PNPS. I plan to use Alene’s Tacky glue to attach it to the cheese board. The flag and watermelon pillow is a Teresa Miller pattern. The little drummer is from Nancee Ariagno. When I first started punching I found limited resources. Now there are so many talented artists out there.

Keep punching Friends. I’ll be back next week.
