2 more Punch Needle Pictures Done!

I finished 2 more punch needle pictures! Actually one of them was done over a month ago, but it was for my very special and sweet friend in Australia who reads my blog, so I didn't want her to see it! She now has it in her hands and I can share it. It is the one above of the pot of flowers with the quilt triangles around it. Isn't it great!


The one with the sheep is for the local quilt shop for display for a class I'm going to teach on it! I think it is so adorable with the sheep. I used wool for the sheep and love the texture and look, I wish I would have made the wool punches a bit longer! But I can always do another one! But not for awhile! I need to get back to quilting!

Geez, I finally found some time last night to browse the ring and can you believe it - just as I started going around they turned blogger off for maintenance! Arghhhh! So I"m off to try and catch up a bit more before too many people get into work!

These are so wonderful! Maybe you could come here and teach me how to do this? Nahhhhh - I really don't need another thing to get me hooked on fibers! LOL! But you *could* make one for me - or how about all your blogger buddies? VBG

Oh - you make starting a new hobby soooo tempting. Really great to see these all finished.... and FRAMED!!! Way to go. I just went to the photo shop today and bought some photo frames - it will be good to have some favorites on the WALL instead of on the computer screen. I really like your pictures and I am sure your friend was really surprised!

Cheers!

What wonderful little pictures Dawn! (Note to self - repeat after me. No, you don't need another hobby. No you don't. No. No.)

those are beautiful ! I love the one with the sheep especially. We have raised sheep and I spin so I suspect I am a bit partial to the critters
