Punching Frakturs and a Photo Booth...


I've been working on some 
punch needle projects...





Fraktur Tulips in the beautiful 
red shades of Valdani Perle Cotton.





A '1776' Fraktur adaptation
with a long fringe edge in 
the deepest red.





One of my favorite shades of Gold...
Tarnished Gold Perle Cotton by Valdani.





This piece is a '1744' Fraktur adaptation.
Love all the dimensions of 
the intertwined hearts.





This is on my worktable now...
a '1769' Fraktur adaptation.





I love how Fraktur work often 
uses hearts and tulips.
These still need to be 'finished' 
into pillows, wallhangings or mats.





Back of a punch needle piece...
because some like to see the back !

who knew you could have so much
fun in a Photo Booth !!
