I have issues. If you’ve read my blog for very long, you know I have a few issues. If you are a relative or a close personal friend, this blog will not surprise you.
I love to needlepoint. It calms me… it makes me happy… and well it gives me something to do when I’m not doing anything. #1 was looking for a new tapestry needle for me when she found my partial stash of finished needlepoints. She got on me a little because I haven’t “finished” them in the way that most people would consider them finished. They haven’t been made into a pillow or framed etc..
Obviously I like poppies…
This is about 1/2 of my finished stuff. See the pumpkin? That
belongs to my friend Tammy. See the “E” I found an “S” the other
day. Now I can have my initials!
I painted the canvas and stitched it up a few years
ago for her birthday. (yes that says a FEW years ago) Tammy
loves all things Halloween. Check out her Halloween party HERE.
I’m such a bad friend.. Tammy if you are reading this.. we should
go to an auction and eat flat cheeseburgers..
This little piggy took me FOREVER to finish.. he’s pretty cute huh?
I was going to use this as a pillow in my entry way…
I bought this hand painted canvas on eBay.. and finished it with
pearl cotton. It’s suppose to go hang on my “needlepoint ornament
tree”. There are few that are destined for that tree.. as soon as they
are finished :).
Here’s one I actually did finish… and made into a pillow. I bought this
at a needlepoint shop in Buckhead Georgia. The woman there convinced
me to use different threads besides wool.. I used velvet on this one.
Do you have any projects that you finished.. but haven’t “FINISHED”?
