First off…Thanks for all the well wishes, thoughts and prayers you’re sending our way..we appreciate it. Surgery for Gracie is going to be scheduled for the earliest date the vet has open.
Each Tuesday I host a review and often a giveaway. Stop by each Tuesday for your chance to win.
Today I am reviewing the book Punchneedle Embroidery: 40 Fold Art Designs by Barbara Kemp and Margaret Shaw. The good people over at Lark Crafts sent the book to me to review.
Have you seen Punchneedle Embroidery before? I have and love it. Country Threads has a great selection of punchneedle goodies and every time I go to the shop I am always drooling over them. That is why I was so excited to see this book.
The beginning 26 pages of the books are dedicated to explaining the hows and whys of punchneedle. There is information from the supplies you need to how to actually punch and mount your finished project. The remaining part of the book features 40 projects including patterns, floss colors and directions.
The back cover features some of my favorite designs from the book.
Stars always catch my eye….
I like this pineapple project too.
I always love anything flag…..These are pins.
All in all there are enough designs I would consider making to warrant purchasing the book. Stars, flags, hearts and pineapples….
If you’re looking for a new hobby punchneedle is perfect for when you’re watching television. It’s easy to learn too. I love that I can easily rip out a section if I don’t like the look. I recently gave my needle and hoop to my niece so that she could give it a try. I have a trip to Country Threads planned for today so my goal is to pick up another needle and hoop…I’d like to get started on one of these projects. The book has me inspired to get punching again.
It’s been such a busy day, I haven’t had time to pick giveaway winners from last week….Thanks for putting up with me. I’ll do the drawings tomorrow.
