One Punch at a Time

Do you remember the Hansel and Gretel story where the children tried to leave bread crumbs so they could find their way in the forest?  That's where I felt as I moved ever so slowly through this 'house' design.  Because I'm using reverse punchneedle I can actually delineate each stitch one by one.  My own personal crumbs.

And slowly but surely it starts to take shape.  The end is actually in sight.  My story is being told with hundreds and hundreds of punches.

"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop." - Confucius


  1. Nothing in the whole world like a good story, Penny ... wonder what your house will have to say in the end? A very interesting process, this punch needle stuff & a fine quote about the sure & steady ;>]

  2. Sneaking up on your design, one stitch at a time!

  3. I love the texture and pattern the stitches leave. Plenty of time for thinking and contemplating?!

  4. You know how I love your charming little cottages, Penny! and the Confucius quote is one of my favorites..it applies to my journey quite regularly..can't wait to see your houses go up!
