Okay so this is one of my favorite things I've ever made and yes, I do feel emotionally attached to each creation I make and yes, it is very hard to send these babes out in the world. My one consolation is that I know my pieces will end up in the right home at the right time. Plus my walls are getting REALLY full and I need more space for new projects.
This was my first foray into punch needle in a larger scale. I removed the frame, and did the binding around the edges by hand. She's eighteen inches across and has some of the imperfections that come with learning a new skill, but I think that's what gives her some character. This led me to my larger rug making projects, which will eventually end up on this website too. :)
