Like a Box of Chocolates

I finished Rainforest Crunch on Christmas Eve. Every square was such fun and I loved using the Watercolours. It's such an easy thread to work with and the color variations really worked on this piece. I am totally sold on doing counted needlepoint and have another project I hope to start this year. But at the moment, I'm sticking to my 15 days of stitching on an older WIP, Jane Longstreth. Pictures will follow later this week.

I'll be having this framed as it is intended to hang on the wall in our guest room (just have to keep working on having its current "occupant"--my oldest child--move his things out!)

So far, 2011 has gone well. I saw a reference on someone else's blog about this being a prime year. Let's hope that it is in every way. I'll be enjoying my last day of winter break by straightening up around the house, reading the paper, getting the haircut I never got around to during the entire week I was off and finally finishing my Christmas cards. It's rare that I don't have them sent out before the holiday, but this year I was having too much fun binding quilts and finishing Rainforest Crunch.

Wishing you all a very relaxing day!

  8. OMG! I hate to used those over used 3 letters but seriously, this is gorgious. I almost have to stop looking at for fear I want to take up another technique. Really pretty, nice job! You will have to bring it to the next quild meeting - I didn't go today because of the snow.....

  9. That is very pretty work. I like the kind of needlepoint where they have printed the image on canvas beforehand. I don't need to but grab the needle, choose the right yarn and start stitching.
