Christmas Punch Needle!

This week I received my issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects. One of the patterns was a rug design by Tonya of Mad Hen Primitives. I thought it would be fun to do as a punch needle and this is how mine came out. I kept some colors similar to hers and some of my own, since the original was done in rug wool.

I used some hand dyed floss for the green leaves and for the outer edge, I used scraps from my floss box to get a hit or miss look. I started out with 3 strands of floss for the design, then used 6 strands for the rest.

I just received my magazine yesterday and have hardly had a chance to look through it yet! I'll have to grab it and compare your version of the design to the one in the magazine -it sure turned out darling! I'm sure the editors would LOVE to see what you've done with it!
