Addicted

My name is Mary and I'm addicted to punch needle. LOL.  I couldn't help but finish the one I was working on.  I took it to work with me yesterday and couldn't help but work on it.  However,  I did get frustrated with it at times because I kept cutting one of my threads. ARRGHH!!!! Once I start doing that I have to put it down.  I really like the colors and I think I'm going to put it on top of a box.  I first need to make sure I know how to do it.  By the way do any of you coffee stain your projects once they are finished?

Anyway, here it is... Steve bought me a new camera yesterday while I was at work so I'm still learning it.  I do believe my pictures are much clearer now.  So please be patient while I figure this thing out.  My old camera is probably 8-9 years old and only had minimal pixels and I couldn't do any editing.  OK it didn't help I spilled wood stain on it either :-/ lol  I really wanted one so that I can take better pictures for my patterns that I sell.


shhh... don't tell anyone but I think I have quite the stash of embroidery floss now.  I went a little crazy buying this last time. lol  I want to build up my stash so any time I get the urge to stitch or punch needle I have what I want and need.  I also want to try to overdye some of my thread too.  Do any of you do this?  I have several tutorials pinned on Pinterest to try.


Since I have the new camera let's revisit my first project shall we?  The coloring is still a bit too bright.  Guess I better figure that out.  lol.


Hope you have a great day. Steve and I are working on finishing up a few projects around here and I have some decorating dilemmas to solve.  I work tomorrow, but if I can't get it solved you will need to help.  I have the hardest time decorating corners and deciding on curtains.  Why is that so difficult?  We will discuss it next time. :-)

Hi Mary,yep it is pretty addicting!I just drew up a new pattern tonight and hope to get started on it soon.Love your pattern.I have overdyed floss and it is easy.I just add some salt and Rit dye to my dye crockpot and add the thread.Just be sure to fold the skein in half and loosely knot it so that it does not tangle as easily.My last blog post shows some of the thread I recently dyed.Have fun,Jen

It's beautiful, Mary. Still want to try but am currently starting to make penny rugs and learning rug hooking so I'll still need to back burner that, though you are inspiring me, and I do have an immense collection of DMC floss!
