Pendents and Embroidery

Here is another of my planned projects down:
Pendents

I have a few more ideas for pendents that I want to try later when I have more time. I also need to find a proper circle cutter, the one I have doesn’t work very well.

And I made this for a woman I work with. She said she loves it so it made me all happy.

Embroidery Totoro

So last night I whipped up this Totoro and also practiced some french knots. Right now I’m trying to decide on if I should fill him in or not.

Punch needle 2: Skull (wip)

Here is what I have so far on my second punch needle project, a skull. I don’t have any white thread at the moment, so just the black so far.

It’s much neater than my first one on the back and it’s going easier too. I got this done pretty fast too. I just ran into some tiny knots of doom with the other threads while trying to separate them and ended up throwing out the little bit that was left because it got ruined. I need to find a way to separate the threads when there are only a couple left. That’s when they tangled. I had no trouble when there were more together, but they really twist up when there are only two or three. I’ll learn!

Here is my first finished piece. Simple and I only have two colors at the moment, but I like it.
My first punch needle!

First time trying punch needle embroidery. As you can see, some of it came undone. I think I need to make the loops longer. I’ll have to read about that later. Just the outline so far.

This is the yarn I’ve spun so far on my new drop spindle. I was having problems with it so the yarn is far from perfect. I got very frustrated so I only did one strip of roving so far.
