Some of you have seen this punch needle design before as I worked on it. This was the first design I created myself. It took me 9 months to complete, partly being I had to say goodbye to Nutmeg in July of last year. She passed away from a tumor and it took me a while to move on from this. She was a very special goat to me and I will cherish the time I had with her very much. I was able to finish the design in February and then took it to a local store to be framed. I wanted this particular design to be matted, framed, and behind fade resistant glass. And here is the finished product! I am very happy with how this turned out and I have already started working on my next goat themed design! Yes Nutmeg is in the next one too! I have also started working on a few designs that can be used for patterns for other to make as well. Now that Spring has arrived (well I think it has anyway) I will be busy with outdoor chores and the baby goats that will be born any day now! I hope to get some great pictures of the babies this spring to use for some future punch needle designs. I have some ideas of what I would like to make as patterns just need to get some pics of the kiddos to finish the drawings.
