A New Horse Punchneedle

I wasn't going to make any punches this week, but I saw this antique rug and I just had to make my own version.
I loved the simplicity of the design and I had some over dyed threads that I have been wanting to try in the right project. This was perfect for them. The dyed threads are in the background and in the border. I love how it all came out.

The bad thing is, I had to use flash to get a picture and then mess with them in photoshop to get the right colors back.
I did the best that I could, but it is so much more prim in person. I wanted it to look like an antique rug and even used a 3 height to get a better hooked look. I put it up on ebay tonight, so for those of you, who wanted a piece on a board, here is your chance to get one;)

I am impressed you know how to "mess with them on photoshop." Photoshop is on my "must learn" list. Love the horses.

I absolutely love the way the edges of your piece look kinda loose and ruffled. Do you change needles? I want to make mine JUST LIKE YOURS..tee hee.

The edges are done with a vintage yarn I had. I sew that to the edge when the piece is done.
