Here's a little more progress made on that punch I'm working on
using wool needlepoint tapestry yarn ~
since the wool has no
'sheen' to it, I thought it was looking a little dull ~
so I added some DMC pearl cotton to the process to see how it would look together:
I like it :)

Here is a close up snap of the front,
you can see the face and wings are done entirely in wool yarns...
giving the finished loops a very nubby-texture with lots of interest and no 'sheen' at all ~
|the wool make 'fibers' in the loops, giving it a very textural look|
here is a snap of the back, or working surface ~
you can see where I went in and punched the darker grey outline
around the head/wings using pearl cotton...
it has some 'sheen' to it, thus lending even more depth and texture.

here is the front again,
not-so-close-up this time, so you can see the addition of the pearl cotton ~
I really like how this is coming together, and am looking forward to seeing this completed today!
|almost finished with the punching...|
while taking these photos, Iggy was sitting on the chair across from me in the keeping room...
I tend to talk to myself, uh, yeah, out loud....so he always thinks I'm speaking directly to him.
well, I usually talk to him too.
he looked like he was agreeing with my choice to add the pearl cotton to the wool ;)
and for those of us that have been sweltering
in the hot, humid weather these past few days:
ahhhhhhh.......or should I say:
Have a beautiful Monday my friends ~
create something wonderful!
* Blessed be *
