Finally Finished—-Sunday, November 19, 2017

“Everyone thinks you make mistakes when you are young.  But I don’t think we make any fewer when we are grown up.” — Jodi Picoult

Finally…after working a little here and there all late spring, through the summer, and just now finishing in late fall I can finally say “DONE!”

It’s just a kit.  But for me and my skills it was a fun evening past time.

I’m also glad it’s finished.  That white rose was terribly hard to do with all the different shading and subtle use of color.  I (very much) enjoyed the big bold colors of all the other flowers. 🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  4. GOOD JOB! It has been many years since I’ve done any type of needlework, much less needlepoint. I still did needlework after the oldest child was born, but after the twins, those pasttimes were just a memory. Maybe it’s time to start again.

  5. Oh Linda, what a glorious piece of work. Clever you! It’s exactly the sort of piece I love, all big extravagant blooms and brilliant colours. I hope you make something with it, and it doesn’t disappear into a drawer…

  6. Beautiful job, Linda. I love the colors on your needlepoint. It would make a gorgeous pillow to be sure. I used to do a lot of crewel work but not any more. Now my interests are genealogy, reading and praying for people. Congratulations on a job well done!

  7. What an achievement dear Linda… I used to love doing cross stitch and petit point until I ruined my eye-sight sewing acres of huge cream sail-cloth curtains at night by hand for a whole lot of french windows !!! and bargello,patterns too… but no more alas… I hope you use yours for a beautiful cushion for your sofa or a comfy arm chair…XXX
