Funny thing that happens to me once in a while - I get in a funk and just don't stitch. At all. Weird, I know for someone who loves needlepoint as much as me. I never stop perusing needlepoint. Or thinking about it for that matter. But sometimes I go months without stitching - this time since the end of July. But I'm back...and apparently with a vengeance! I recently went to Austin with a dear friend for a needlepoint weekend and since it was my birthday, my Mother gave me the perfect gift...a gift certificate to The Needle Works to use while I was there. And I spent it all for this piece that I have loved for a long time:
When I first saw this piece, I knew I wanted to bead it. Yep, I'm beading the entire thing. It's going to be fabulous. And so I sat down got started......one tiny little bead at a time...
I'm still at it and still loving it. I will post more pics soon - hope to stitch a lot this weekend. Is it brave or crazy to stitch a piece that is 12" X 13"?
