Punch needle is not my favorite type of needlework but it is worked quickly and the results are very nice. Since there is the possibility of a friend’s baby shower in my future, I wanted to whip up something quickly that would be appropriately cute.
Like every other crafter I know, my craft closet has a stash of supplies and projects from which to pick and choose. I found the perfect one and just finished the punching this afternoon. I’ve mounted it on a board, found a nice creamy colored mat and the right size frame. I decided to paint the frame pink to pull out some of the color in the design. The first coat is drying. Provided I like it, tomorrow I’ll do the second coat. There is a smidge left in the Modge Podge Glitter bottle which I plan paint over the frame once it is all dry just to make it sparkle a little.
You’ll just have to be patient for a photo, dear Reader.
Do you keep a small stash of completed projects to use as gifts? Or do you whip something up last minute?
