I'm really enjoying this punch needle project. This is quite a large project - 15cm x 23cm (6" x 9") but with a little time and persistence, it moves along pretty quickly.
Outlining the sunflowers really made them 'pop'. If I were to do this pattern again, I'd outline the stem and leaves as well. This photo is an attempt to show the two loop levels in the centre of the sunflowers. This is easily achieved with the Ultra-Punch (aka Cameo Punch needle) by changing depth levels.
Also, these hand-dyed Valdani threads are a pleasure to work with. The give the piece such dimension.
