This is the reason I have not been getting any tangling done at all. It's a punchneedle embroidery, and measures about 9 & 3/4" square. I have always loved doing this type of embroidery and have Linda Repasky to thank for teaching me; she was kind enough to show me how to punch while we were having breakfast near the Shelburne Museum, probably about 15 years ago. I've been doing this form of needlework ever since.
I spotted the pattern for this piece at The Old Tattered Flag a couple of years ago and knew immediately that I wanted to make it. Julie, the designer, is just great. I also recommend the spinner frame she uses and sells.
Below are photos of the piece in progress. I began punching the coverlet about 3 weeks ago, with plenty of days where little or nothing got done because of other commitments. It was such fun to make.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
