~ PPNC Model and shop is Open Today ~

Good Saturday Morning 
Friends & Folk
{how did it get to be Saturday again so fast???}

here is the finished model for the
Feb/Mar/April ~ Primitive Punch Needle Club from Notforgotten Farm™ 
{affectionately a.k.a. the "PPNC"}

I wanted to design something that replicates old rug hooking with different directional techniques ~
so I chose different motifs from several favorite antique rugs that I love and combined them here... 
just a simple, central motif with a nice pop of red 
that helps to bring out all of the more subdued hues in this project.

"Geranium Basket"

from the almost 'hit-or-miss' background,
to the purposeful striated border...

The backing is a slice of old wool, and the edges were covered 
by whip-stitching on a variegated yarn ~

 the members' kits include:
*pattern/color photo/instructions for placing thread to achieve same look as model.
*weavers cloth
*valdani/dmc threads to punch project
*piece of same yarn shown to finish project

If you're interested in becoming a member of our PPNC

and, if you're in the neighborhood today ~

 it's Crafty Saturday!!!!!

gather up your needlework in progress and come create with me!
punch - hook - stitch - repeat 
have a *sparkling* day my sweet friends...
Blessings from the Farm ~
