This is my second great undertaking with punch needle. I think that I need to take it down a notch as far as size when it comes to making punch needle artwork. But I really like the amount of detail in each picture. I first draw a rouch sketch of what I would like to make and then draw it on fabric, sometimes muslin, sometimes cross stitch fabric. It probably isn’t what I am suppose to use, but when have I ever done what I am suppose to do?
I think I have surprised some people in the work that I put out, primarily because I don’t think I have shown anything like this before. It’s always been there. I have always been pretty artsy. Luckily I have found something that goes great with who I am. I am as imperfect as it gets. I ahve always called myself the disorganized perfectionist because I want things to be perfect, but often they are unfinished and sloppy. And with punch needle and rug hooking I can be imperfect and that is what makes the artwork beautiful! My things will never look store bought, or made by a machine. My things will never look like you couldn’t make it. And that’s what I like about it.
Anyway….Here is a picture of my Birdbath in the works. This one is going much faster then the daisy punch needle, maybe because I know what I am doing (haha) or because I set aside time to do this.
What do you think????
