I’m probably one of the last designers on earth to use Weeks Dye Works floss, but I was able to speak with Miranda at the show and I now have full sets of both floss and wool felt. She also showed me something new she’s been working on, which is a 3-strand hand dyed floss, packaged as balls rather then skeins. (you know, like the way some of the DMC perle is packaged?) How neat is that for punchneedling?! You don’t have to seperate OR reload your needle often!
Speaking of punchneedle, I finally got the hang of it! I had tried a few times before and failed miserably– patience is not one of my virtues, so I figured I’d just cross that technique off my list of needlework things I wanted to do. However, one of the CTR ladies spent some time with me on my technique so I expect I’ll be playing with punchneedle sometime in the near future.
I’m midway through painting & filling my canvas orders; almost all of the cross stitch orders have been shipped out. The last 2 are packed and waiting for the post office to open on Monday :)
