Seasons Minis

I thought I'd make some mini mats, 3x3 inch, depicting the seasons. Right now I'm trying out punching narrow wool strips with my Craftsman needle. I sawed an extra notch in it to get a shorter loop. I thought I'd show the backside that you punch from and the front. It's not coming out as abstract as I wanted, but I'll wait and see as it's filled in more. Here's also a winter mini that I did last year using a regular rug hook. I used a bit of roving in it.

betsey, what's it look like more filled in? i know from long experience that you can't tell much before you get backgroiund in around those single lines.
