I ran into another dry-spell. I couldn’t think of a craft or even a household project that I wanted to do. Then the other morning I woke up with a needlepoint kit on my mind. I bought the kit a few years ago because I love the design and colors and I thought it was a cross stitch kit. I planned to make it and hang it on the wall or maybe make a throw-pillow. Imagine my disappointment to find out that it’s needlepoint. I’d never tried needlepoint (as far as I could remember). I put the needlepoint kit away in a drawer and gave it a passing forlorn thought from time-to-time.
Since I’d woken up with the kit on my mind and I wasn’t inspired to do any other project, I thought I as might as well open the kit and see if it there was a chance that I might be able to learn the skill. I was relieved to read the directions and discover that it’s basically like doing plastic canvas on a smaller grid. ~happy dance~
I’ve got only the lower right hand corner block done. I think it looks good. In real life this needlepoint’s colors are very pretty. I’m happy that I’m finally making this kit after all these years.
Wishing you all happy crafting!
