Big Mistake in Punch Needle

I made a huge mistake when designing my latest pattern, and did not realize it until I had transferred it onto the monks cloth.  Fortunately everything is covered by wool when complete, so I can just write over it with impunity (except for embarrassment!).  What did I do?  I wrote the words without reversing them, so that when you flip it over to the right side, everything was BACKWARDS.  I am fairly sure this is a mistake I will only make once, and I’m surprised I even did it this time because I know better.  I guess I’m just too excited to start this project.  Learn from me.  I’ll make many more, but different, mistakes on this journey that I will share and save you the trouble.

Looking for a way to level, center, and artistically write words on a rug, I went to Youtube today and found this video.  What a gorgeous shop!  It makes me want to jump in the car and move to New Hampshire, which doesn’t sound like a bad idea frankly.  I’ve been to New Hampshire, and it’s beautiful!

You will LOVE this video, and maybe absorb some of their enthusiasm for this amazing craft.  I am definitely “afflicted with an addiction to wool!”  P.S.  The “Patsy” is not me!

    I’ve really been enjoying reading your daily adventures with your punch needling. 😉 That video is great and I was dying to get my hands on all that yarn in the background. lol. You need to make a small punch needle that says, “Punch Needlers do it in reverse.” Hang it in your craft room. Keep at it!
