One of my friends has just had twins! Eeeek, twice the crochet! I’m still slogging my way through the two crochet blankets, but I’m seeing them tomorrow. How can I see them when they don’t have something homemade? Then I had a genius idea! Earlier this lockdown, I sent for a punch needle kit that I saw on instagram. I made a quite respectable lighthouse.
I gave it to my dad, who likes lighthouses, and he was very pleased with it. Considering it had only taken a couple of evenings, I wondered if I could repeat the process. And I did!
The twins are called Noah (Noah’s ark, easy) and Rory (…harder). Anyway, I decided to make Rory a tiger because they’re roar-y.
I like the way the back of the punch needle looks. If I’d been clever, I could have used it to make a lion for Rory… never mind.
Not bad for ONE evening’s work! The next day, I went to Tiger (I love Tiger), and bought two ready-stretched canvases. Then I removed the canvas and stapled the embroidery on the frame. I’m pretty pleased with myself, and hope they like them!
