Punchneedle Embroidery Online Students' Projects

We recently completed our very first Online Classes for Punchneedle Embroidery so I thought I'd like to share with you some photos of students' exercises I gave them as they continue now to learn the more advanced ideas I gave them.  Some of these students have never done Punchneedle Embroidery before so I'm very proud of their progress.

Notice Narelle's orange ball sampler of how different the embroidery appears if it were a/ punched in a circle, or b/ punched back and forth in rows.  The sock is in two colours, two rows of each colour worked in stripes.  Teena's Teddy holding balloons could now be cut out and used as an appliqué.
Dorothy's Teddy is one of the early projects I had students make.  Thought you may be also interested to see the back as well as the front.  Punchneedle Embroidery is worked from the back of the fabric.

Christine found a photo of a cat online that resembled "Rufus" her cat whom she fondly remembers.  She traced the outline and completed this beautiful piece which she now intends to make into a cushion for her bed as a fond memory of her beloved pet.  Christine actually did quite a few wonderful projects and loves punching in front of the TV at nights.

Eleanor framed her urn and potpurri designs displaying a colourful array of flowers that I'm sure are proudly on display in her house.

May I invite readers to send me some photos of any Punchneedle Embroidery you've done yourself?  We'd love to share some inspirational ideas, wouldn't we "students"?
If you'd like to comment re the students work, please do so.  Of course, there's many more photos sent to me, I've simply selected some at random.  We'll have a full gallery of them on the website in due course to encourage others to enrol in our next Punchneedle Online Course.  Would you like to be informed when the date is decided?  Four Lessons for $45.00 and you don't need to be in front of the computer at a given time during the week.  You download the lesson in your own time and work through the lessons and exercises at your leisure.  Students communicate via their own Yahoo Group only open to students of that course.  It's FUN!  Interested?

Edible Cake?
Here's a delightfully amazing image of an edible cake.  Yes, completely edible.  Made by Zhanna from St. Petersburg.  Every part of it may be eaten, no plastic or artificial components.  Hard to believe hey?

This week we travel to Canberra for the Craft & Quilt Fair being held at "Exhibition Park in Canberra" which is on the corner of Northbourne Avenue and Flemington Road in Mitchell.  Do visit sometime between Thursday 5th and Sunday 8th from 10.00am to 4.30pm daily.  We're on Stand A02 and we'll be demonstrating all of our new products and some popular oldies too.  Click here to see the details of my daily seminar on Binding, Trims & Embellishments to complete your quilt and hands-on class making Ruched Flowers & other varieties.
