Meanwhile the pattern is coming along. For those of you who might be considering punchneedle - or are new to it. You'll notice that when you turn it over, partway through, it often looks strange. Little loops standing there, seemingly alone, looking lost and not very attractive.
But, once the whole design is worked - it all falls into place. No stranded loops, standing alone, but one continuous design. Yay!
Some of you know about the great 'buckle' hunt that I've been on. Finally success through an online store called Pacific Trimming . Good selection at decent prices. I will soon own several buckles, probably more than I'll ever use - but we'll see about that.
