I did a couple test runs with the Punch Needle using Spencer's topsy turvy monsters as my subject. The most important thing learned was how much embroidery floss is used with lengthening the needle and how delicate the long needle threader is. Andy loved working on it with me which was super fun and made me happy!
Then I started a project on the large embroidery hoop. The image is inspired by a drawing given to me by my friend Hannah. I think I'm going to keep the colors more neutral and less super bright and playful than the monsters, but we'll see!
