After too many fiasco's with three dimensional punch needle I have made a U turn and gone back to using other artists designs and following their directions and their paths.

Its quite freeing to know that all I have to do is fill in the spaces of a drawing on Weaver's Cloth using colors chosen by someone else or of my own choosing -- but with no thought except to do careful stitching and watch the design appear beneath my fingers.

I've also discovered a Punch Needle periodical called "Punch Needle and Primitive Stitcher".  Each issue includes several patterns that I can follow and complete.

This all takes me back to the hours I would spend as a young child, laying on the floor, coloring in my coloring books, humming and happy!

"Don't ever rule out the option of U-turn in your life, because one day you will need it!  The moment you realize you are going in the wrong direction, turn to the right direction instantly, with a beautiful U-turn."

  1. It's wonderful to go back to things we thought we'd done with. Somehow we have different eyes, and different hearts. I have been on that route myself-and have been tempted to drop painting out of frustration-but-I want to push myself into learning more and improving. There is comfort in going back-maybe that's what I desire. Painting, even though I've painted for ages, seems scary to me-where doll making and other fabric work was comfy. Good quote about the u-turn.

  2. Penny, this is so great! I feel your peace, and am so glad you found it. I like the piece, the pumpkin colors are perfect.it will be beautiful!

  3. So nice to quietly do something you like doing without the stress.

  4. Creating is no fun if it's causing you stress and there is no shame in a u-turn. ;o)

  5. I'm all for enjoying the process--which is different in different times. We all cycle through a variety of needs and behaviors when creating, and U Turns are often necessary. :)
