Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop

Welcome to my day for the Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop.  Many thanks to Carol for hosting this fun show and tell :)  I have deviated a bit from my normal quilty projects for this one as the directions were to make something small.  I toyed with the idea of making a bag but a few things stepped in my way this last month which prevented that from happening so I thought I would share a Punch Needle Rug project I played with this last month to open up my creativity...

 This is the front side...

(Normally rug hookers would consider this the front side but with this design's use of thin stems, it is the back in this case.)

I loved the pattern by AROUNNA KHOUNNORAJ and the wool and wool blend yarns were beautiful to punch with :)  I am a fan of the oxford punch needle and think it was much easy and faster than the rug hooking I have tried before.  This designer sees this side as the finished but rug hookers would typically use the other side.  This design with it's thin stems is easier to see with this thickness of yarn on the "reverse" side from normal.  It is hanging in my quilt room enjoying a place of honor among my minis.

This is the February box for .  I have never tried a subscription box before but this one struck me as different as you get a pile o' supplies and a video instruction for something different in the Art world.  I am pretty stuck on quilting as my game so it was good to step out and try something new.  This is not really an advertisement for them as I am not an affiliate or anything, just a customer -but I was pleased with this box and love the fact that I got to try something new :)

Thanks for joining me today and...

Here is the schedule for today as well as for the rest of the hop, please be sure to visit all these fine folks!!
