I'm a Little Punchy Today



I've been experimenting with rug punching using wool strips.  Thought perhaps I could produce more stuff faster for the fall shows and add a new technique to my repertoire. I think this pumpkin looks like I was punch drunk when I made it!  The loops are all higgledy piggeldy, which makes me a little crazy.  I like things nice and neat.  And I find the process rather wasteful -- punching leaves lots of long ends that end up as waste, as you can see in the photo.  No verdict yet, but I don't think I'll be doing this very often.

I think that your little pumpkin rug looks rather nice. It will look perfect when all those little ends are cut off.

Oh well, It's always good to try something new! I was like that with punch needle....too small and tedious for me, but lots of folks seem to like it.
Have never tried the punch hooking, honestly though, it doesn't look half bad!
