A Love of Punching!

As you my know, I have recently been learning to do punch needle.  With the help of some good punching friends....Thank you Theresa Meloon.... and watching some great Youtube tutorials.....Thank you Lori Brechlin, I've been quite inspired by my new love of punching!  

Finished my little punched oak leaf into a pyn pillow. 
Kind of mixed media...punched wool, linen with cross stitch and fabric accent. 
 Even added a little brass acorn charm.

Trying to get ready for my Primitive Handmades Mercantile update this month.  It always comes around so fast.  Somehow managed to plan another trip at the same time as this update. 
I'll be headed down to Va to attend Kathy Barrick's workshop given by the Virginia Guild of Needlewomen.  I'm excited about it, but I have lots of homework to stitch before I get on the road.
Wishing you all a wonderful week full of beautiful Fall inspiration!
Smiles, Nan

LOVE this pillow Nan. It is so sweet and great job combining punch needle and stitching. I too am going to start my first punch needle project today and hope to eventually start making my own.
have a great day!
