I am going make a concerted effort to post more regularly.
I am working on an 18 x 18 counted needlepoint. Took a two day class with my ANY (American Needlepoint Guild. It is a monochromatic sampler of sorts. It had a ton, just ton, of pre stitching. Everyone picked out a different color. I was first drawn to old golds, but had a lot of problems with the colors, so I switching to purples. At first I picked out only dark, royal purples, but quickly realized that there was no contrast to the piece if I did not get different hues of purple, which I did. My girlfriend in the class brought me some burgundy wine reds that went with the purples, so I changed my colors to purples and these beautiful wine red colors. I have done a few of the 37 rectangles. It will be a long WIP, but one that is coming out just beautiful. Will post a picture soon.
This is just a short blog. Need to start somewhere. I will post a picture of this counted needlepoint soon.
Yours in creating a beautiful life,
