While I was out and about, I stopped at one of the thrift stores and came across their fabric sale.... 50% off! So, I came home with these:
Inspired by Pam's project last week, I tried my hand at punch needle. I had several kits with different styles of needles, so I pulled out one and drew a heart on the fabric based on a design from DMC. Once I got the hang of it, it was pretty easy.
I used some floss I got from the Free-For-All Exchange at the retreat. It was leftover from a kit. I thought this was a great way to use the floss.
The interesting thing about punch needle is that you work the design on the wrong side of the fabric. When you finish and turn it over, it looks like the above. The texture reminds me of latch hook... miniaturized!
I've been diligently working away on JG. Sixteen specialty stitches and I'll be done with another page. Woo Hoo! I think I'll stitch on it again this week and then move on to Fleurs.

Until next time,
