Punchneedle ..

paisley pattern ...


After doing several test patterns with adjustment to the needle, made another attempt and completed this small piece. It looks better than the previous one,loops are more the same.  I do not know yet if I want to add few more motifs, fill in the background colour or leave it as it is.

I still have not added the backing for the piece, and I also do not know how best I can display it.  The design is from one of my past work that I did on jute (you can see a picture of it on the bottom of the blog page).

I' m also contemplating, if I should fill in rest of the background with the running stitch as well. I took photos as I was too excited to show it.
