1787 Fraktur Punch Needle Project
One of my favorite things to do,
when starting a new punch needle design,
is to pull all the potential colors I might need.
Valdani Perle Cotton makes this job so easy !!
There are so many yummy colors to choose from -
where to begin ??
I will usually pull more shades than I will use -
but, I cannot make a final decision until the design
begins to take shape and I can see
how the colors work together.
I have been researching Fraktur Designs and was
pleasantly surprised that a large majority
originated right here in Pennsylvania.
Often times Deeds were recorded on the most
gorgeous Fraktur documents.
I wish we still handled our offical paperwork
in such a beautiful way.
I am now carrying Valdani Thread Bundles
in my Studio, for many of my Punch Needle Patterns.
(Thanks to those who asked about them ;)
