Flowers and Vines Variation

This punchneedle embroidery version of the hooked stool is done I think. I may rearrange the vines a bit. It's done on hand-dyed wool, using 2 strands of embroidery floss. The loop pile is fairly high. I applied woven interfacing to the back of the wool in order to punch through it successfully. I think I'll make a handbag out of this; still thinking about the bag design.

Hi Betsey. I discovered your blog from Bonnie's dyeing post. What gorgeous work you do - the pink flowers are precious.

That piece will make a lovely bag!
