the other day, i mentioned that when i should have been concentrating on my olympic event, i was partying with needlepoint. i even brought it to the closing ceremonies *gasp* but was shamed into keeping it in the bag (which is fine, since it would have gotten in the way of the drinking of beer).
anyway, jackie asked to see it anyway. and who am i to say no to jackie.
so this is the piece that i've been working off and on for a few days now. it's a door stopper kit that i purchased in bermuda. i love this little pink house.
i finished this piece ages ago. it needs to be properly blocked and framed.
(i found this piece at the bottom of a bag, so i needed the mouse and camera to keep it flat).
finally, this piece is the largest i've ever attempted and it's almost done. unfortunately i've run out of the sky blue cotton, and i'm going to be a little short on the white of the house. so this piece will continue to be on hold at least until the summer when i go back to france. (i think i bought this canvas a good 10 years ago).
and because i'm a born multi-tasker, i crocheted a couple of hand soap cozies last night.
(i wonder if these are kitschy enough for stitchy?)
that's all for now.
