When I went to Cincinnati with the gals from Country Threads, I saw Connie demo-ing how to do punchneedle embroidery. It got me wanting to complete a couple of the projects that I had here.
I hurried to get this pumpkin project stitched…but then ran into a little trouble. It was stitched but, I didn’t know how to finish the project so it just sat. I did find a wooden box that I thought I could mount it to. The wood box had the word Dad carved into and it had a cedar wood finish but I thought that a little paint might cure that and I thought the punchneedle would cover the word Dad.
But still…I didn’t know how to finish the punchneedle piece and I didn’t know how to mount it. I asked the gals at Country Threads and much to my delight, Mary B, put together a tutorial to show how to finish a project. You can find that tutorial here.
I followed the directions but wasn’t happy with how my project looked.
Being that project got finished, that made it legal for me to purchase this…Right??
Hopefully this will get finished in a few less years.
