Needlepoint Update

#1 bought this needlepoint for mother’s day for me.  It is a Kirk and Bradley canvas, and when I received it I was pleasantry surprised at how BRIGHT this canvas was.  I had settled on a ribbon for the brightest pink, and ran out.  I looked everywhere for the same dye lot and color.  No luck.

After a little searching I did find a good replacement.

The Finished product:


I did the white and black in wool, the purple centers in velvet.  It’s hard to tell but the back in the center is sparkly.  I’m going to have this finished as a pillow.


Here’s what I am working on now:

This is an Elizabeth Turner Queen Bee canvas.  It is supposed to be finished into a mirror.  But I made the center  Initials.

What Should I Do With Finished Needlepoint?

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”?
