Fresh Eggs Punchneedle Embroidery

I completed one of the punchneedle projects I picked up at the quilt show last year.  This is my third punchneedle project I have done.  The think tank is still trying to decide how to display the first two.  This design is from Threads that bind,by Shawn Williams.  I've ordered 4 designs from this site so far, plus the wool backing and the frames.  I love that she has everything right there.

This is the back of the of the design, you punch the embroidery through from the back with a special tool....

...and you end up with this wonderful piece of art to display! 

I used heat and bond to fuse the wool to the weavers cloth.  Threads that bind also has instructions on their website for framing.  I didn't use sticky board like they suggest, I just wrapped it around the glass that came with the frame.  I used satin acrylic craft paint by Martha Stewart to paint the frame.
