Two little kittens

I finished the needle punch!

The image is cute, however there was not enough thread in the colors to be able to make it look like the picture. The boarder is supposed to be dark grey background but as you can see, there was only enough to do the right side. I then used what was left of the other two greys (used in the cats) to fill in the rest of the boarder.

I have not cut the fabric yet as I don’t know what I am doing with this yet.

Punch needle embroidery wip

This is the other kit I picked up at a fiber fest last month. I have not done punch needle in a long time but want to work on it again. I could not pass this kit up because I love cats. I started it last night. It took a bit for me to remember how to do things right, but I think it’s going well now. :)

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!

Okay, here are the pics.

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.
