I’ve finished the first horse of the Magdalena Briner “Two Horses”. What do you think of the color? Looks a bit on the pink side from where I sit, but by the time I get the background filled in and the finished punch needle coffee stained, I’m hoping my pink sherbet horse will transform into a faded red raspberry one.
I’m using 2 strands of Valdani Pearl Cotton #12 in a medium tip Cameo punch needle, set at the lowest (#1) loop height. If you’ve never tried the Valdani pearl cotton, and you’d like to but aren’t sure how to get two strands out of one ball, click here. The link will take you to my “choosing color” post where I demonstrate two strand~one ball. 🙂
I’ll be working on the white horse next. I’ve chosen to use a simple ecru pearl cotton. As I’m threading my needle, the Pileated Woodpecker stops by…
Isn’t she a beauty?
Until the white horse is done….
