This is "Lone Star", a needlpoint based on the Texas Flag. It was mounted in a rustic frame on a wool background with a twisted cord that hopefully looks a bit like a rope. It was designed by Kathy Fielder of the Greater Dallas Chapter EGA. I'll be teaching it at the Fort Worth Chapter EGA this month. It was a super fun stitch!
Here's another needlepoint, but a tiny one. It's just under 2 inches. The design is by Mary Polityka Bush and I finished it into a two sided pin keep. It's mounted on large metal buttons with a flower trim around the edge. This was also an EGA project.
I took a break from needlepoint and did this Elizabeth's Designs punchneedle. I finishd it into a pin cushion and filled it with crushed walnut shells. This is the first time I've used the walnut shells as a pin cushion stuffer - I love the feel and weight of it!
Leaving you with the progress on Leo's baby sampler. Maybe I can have it finished by his first birthday :)
Happy stitching and stay warm!!
