A Needlepoint Post

So these are the two projects I’ve just finished. The rooster I made for me, for fun.

The covered bridge is an anniversary gift for my parents – they had their second date in a covered bridge just like this one. Pretty cool find, huh?

I’m about to embark on a series, canvases made by the same artist who did the bridge. She’s got a whole heap of pretty sweet canvases of houses and scenes from the town I grew up vacationing in, Cape May, NJ. It’s not like I’m doing them all, or even half, but still – should keep me busy for awhile.

Just for Kicks, My July Project

I made this for my brother, since he appreciates all things architectural, and really likes Savannah, GA (which is full of these sorts of projects). I didn’t exactly follow the pattern – it was too girly for KJ. But I like the final result.

A Girl’s Gotta Have a Hobby

Recently finished my first big needlepoint project, which is bound for my nephew Brad’s nursery wall. It took almost a year for me to finish – I started it before Brad was a zygote. So excited to see it all finished up and on the wall.

Hoping there will be a spot to put those great lyrics from Rain for Roots below the piece.
