crafting wip

I'll be updating you on my knitting in another post, but for now one of my works in progress. I wanted to get away from my knitting for a spell, so I started this punch needle project. I purchased this awhile ago with lisa, but put it aside when I started knitting.

if you aren't familiar with punch needle, you can visit country stitches to get more details and see more projects. the basics-you work from the back of your project punching floss through a pre-printed canvas with a punch needle. this project is an easy traveler. I took it to basketball practice tonight and got a big portion of the background completed. so this is what I've been up to lisa.

It is looking great. I remember that one, so pretty. I punch needled before Christmas and I had forgotten how fun and fast it was.

That is really pretty! I recently bought a punch needle kit at the craft store, but forgot the hoop! I am excited to try it now!
