I finished my first needlepoint project and am so happy with how it turned out. I used a pattern from this book and just stitched until it felt done. The frame is 8" x 8" and the mat opening is 5" x 5". This is stitched in hand-dyed silk. Next up will be my first crewel work project. I'm really excited.
Here's how our needlework wall is looking. I'm prepared for the fact that the girls might want to have their pieces in their rooms eventually. For now, they are happy to have them up here, which I love. It's the first wall you see when you come in our house. All these pieces make me so happy.
