Counting on Ewe

Peaceful Prairie

My very first punchneedle!  I had been collecting punchneedle patterns for quite a few years, thinking "I'll eventually do this at some point."  I did take a class with a wonderful teacher at a quilt shop.  I even used a vacation day for the class because I had been waiting to learn how to do it.    There was a free kit with the class, and we used a specific hook and also a hoop.  Several months later, I was at the Vermont Quilt Show, and bought a punchneedle frame, and also a different kind of hook.  I actually really like punchneeding in this way better.  I didn't mind the other hook and hoop, but I like the frame for myself, because you don't need to be tightening the cloth over and over again.  When I purchased the frame and hook, it came with a free pattern, so had picked this little sheep.  I am very new to finishing punchneede, so I just mounted the piece on to some wool and put a backing on to it.  I have a little hook that it rests on that is hanging on the wall.  Now, even though punchneedle isn't a project that I work on frequently, I do always have a project set up.
