You know as the saying goes… “the clothes make the man” or the woman as the case may be. For us needlepointers, the finishing makes the piece. Start with a flat canvas that has been fantastically designed and painted, add a few threads and beads. Well to be honest many threads and beads, a few stitches with a little artistic license and then it goes off to the finishers. You hope and pray for that “OMG, that is gorgeous!”
This is Barbara of Barbara’s Needlepoint located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota working her finishing magic on the Thanksgiving pieces. A penny for your thoughts Barbara!
Canvases by NeedleDeeva and lovingly stitched by moi.
All is I can say is WOW! Barbara really outdid herself…
and I have yet to see them up close and in person…
Rumor has it that they will make their debut at the TNNA Winter Market in Long Beach.
I can’t wait to see them!
Thank you Barbara!
My trip to the Pacific Northwest and the studios of Needlepoint Now was as wonderful as always! Playing with the growing up way too fast poodles, a trip to Mindy’s Needlepoint Factory, dinner at King’s Estate Winery and an escape to the mountains of Oregon for blissful days of nothing but stitching! What could be better than that? My return home took a little longer than originally planned and you know who definitely let me know that she was not pleased with me.
and until next time…keep on stitching
