New Punchneedle Design: Antique Ducks and Winner!


I finished my new piece this week and I am please with how it came out. It is so hard to get the true colors in a photo, but I love the contrast between the dark background and the brighter design.

I had an idea of doing it with a hit or miss star and more prim shades and making it into a rug, for my niece who got a large dollhouse last Christmas. I will have to see how she has decorated it so far and then I can make some rugs to fit her style.

The design is done in punch needle and comes in an epattern with a color photo, basic colors and instructions, as well as a line drawing of the design, so you can reduce or enlarge to fit your project.

The finished pillow is 6 1/2" X 5". It is an adaptation of an antique rug and could be done in wool appliqué, as well.

And now for the winner of the free pattern. The winner is Lecia of Farmhouse Prims! Lecia, email me with your choice of epattern or booklet and congratulations.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and are not in the path of the storm, that is coming our way.
And for this weekend, if you buy any one of my epatterns, you get one for free. The free pattern must be of equal or less value, as the one you bought, so great time to get some patterns for the coming seasons. To get your free pattern, put the name in the comment section of your order.

The piece is more prim and muted in person, the flash tends to pick up certain colors and make them pop. I also made my piece a bit off centered, but the pattern has been modified and straightened.

I have some friends who like felt applique and thought of them when seeing your new piece. It is really charming and the colors stand out against the dark background.
