It looked intriguing but I did nothing about it until last week when I went on my little mini shop hop with my friend Sue and found this cute little book that had some punch needle patterns in it. Well, as I read about the thread you used for these little punch needle patterns, I saw that one uses the same embroidery floss she would use if she did a lot of counted cross stitch.
I used to do a lot of counted cross stitch, but now my eyes are not so fond of that sport and I have been wondering (for the past several years) what I was going to do with all the 100s and 100s of skeins of DMC embroidery floss that is just sitting around waiting for the day I MIGHT try a new cross stitch!! Then it hit me - a new way I could use all that embroidery floss and learn a new trick at the same time!!
At a second quilt shop, I found a punch needle (that is ergometrically friendly) and after reading the instructions on how to use the fancy-schmancy needle . . . no more need be said!!!
You CAN teach an old dog new tricks AND its a ton of fun that I can do while my Dad and I watch the Rockies baseball games almost each and every night during the summer!!!
HAPPY CAMPER HERE!!!
