Friday Finish .... New Pattern in Process!


I started a new pattern last week and it has been slow going this week so the pattern won't be ready till next week. It will be a two part pattern including the punch needle which you can see below and a small wall hanging with applique and stitchery.

Tonight I am showing the punch which I kept simple because I know many of you enjoy punch needle but not always the small details so I try and design them so they are easy to punch but still work into a nice design.

The original design was adapted from a fraktur but it turned into a crow piece. The accompanying piece will also have a saying. I also did a special border on the punch as well as a twisted yarn edge, and I will include the basic how to's in the pattern.

This punch is messed up, I traced the pattern backwards for punching and then traced it from the right side and didn't realize it until I saw that the letter was backwards. I redid the letter but left the crow as is, so it might seem a bit off. The crow should be facing the other way and the C on his left. I did not antique this piece yet so I could get a clear photo of the piece for the pattern.

Even though, it still looks good, but I understand how it would bother you. Will you be doing the whole alphabet?

I like how the background is mottled. So many people like crow designs. I hope it is a big success for you.

Great pattern. I think the design looks just fine even though you say you didn't do it right.
