Cheryl Mihills – Punch Needle Miniatures are a traditional punchneedle tool to create my original fiber designs. I discovered the one-strand punch needle in 1979. It is the perfect medium for my original needle work creations. My work is always evolving. Nature, movement, color blending, light and shade are all important influences in my work. My pictures are a painterly expression using one strand of thread to give each picture texture and dimension. There are approximately 1,200 stitches and loops per square inch of each picture.
