Classic Coronary heart Rug Design ~ Yvonne Buus : The Oxford Punch Needle

That is ‘Harvest Blessings’ performed with the Amy Oxford #14 punch needle and my worsted single ply wool yarn. It measures 11″ x 20 1/2″. I’ve been promoting these little patterns as kits. It is a fourth sample and it’s based mostly on my punch needle embroidery sample, ‘Harvest Blessings.’

Many months in the past, I used to be engaged on just a little punch needle piece with some Valdani thread and the Cameo punch needle. As I working, I used to be wishing that I may simply dye these threads myself. When I’m engaged on one thing and I visualize it, I like with the ability to simply create it- and that goes for colour as nicely. So, I used to be considering on how to do this after I started remembering a couple of years in the past working with the Oxford Punch Needle and yarn from a neighborhood fiber retailer. I puzzled if I may get my arms on some pure wool- one thing like I used to use- with just a little thick and skinny to it- may I dye it myself and create that variation that all of us take pleasure in whereas punching with Valdani embroidery floss?

The reply was YES!

Soooo…. I’ve been dyeing up single strand wool yarn and utilizing a #14 Oxford punch needle and having fun with myself completely!

Take a look at all that lovely colour!!

Years in the past, proper earlier than I discovered rug hooking, I had a quick couple years of utilizing the Amy Oxford punch needle. On the time, I used to be utilizing a #10 and a thicker yarn- Halcyon’s rug yarn. I should share later some pictures of a few of the issues I did again then.

I’ve been actually having fun with doing a little punching and dyeing the yarn.

Have you ever ever used an Oxford punch needle? I’d love to listen to your expertise!
