Heart Inspiration Day 1

This punch needle pattern was punched using an antique rug for inspiration. Here is my punch needle version of the antique rug.


Here is the antique rug that inspired the punch needle. 
My friend Lori Rippey punched this pattern in a more neutral color palette.  Isn't it lovely?


The talented Kris Miller hooked this adaption of the antique rug. I have talented friends, eh?

For tomorrow's post, I'll show you a rug that I designed using the antique rug for inspiration.

I love this design. I've seen it before when I was scouting out antique rugs. I'd love to hook it someday!

interesting pattern...it has an abstract touch, don't you think? - probably comes from the asymmetrical elements! whatever you wanna call it - sure looks pretty!

I love to see all the diffrent ways one pattern can be color planed. I need to work on punch needle again. I have done one piece but that is it.
