My sewing these days consists of doing needlepoint.
Thank heaven that I'm slow for I have way too many
If I could churn out one a week or even one a month
think what a 40+ year supply would consist of!
I started in my early married years,
and then along came Daughter Sarah
and needlepointing got put away.
I discovered it again when we sailed for England
a few years back.
I finished that piece while we were in England,
bought another canvass over there to do on the way home,
and I've had a needlepoint project ever since.
And I am very conscious not to get a supply of canvasses.
Preferring to be almost finished with one
before I get another.
It keeps those canvasses from piling up!
And last Christmas, I started a tradition
for Grandgirl Lucy --
a needlepoint ornament as a Christmas gift.
I already bought the 2014 canvass
(last year I waited until December!)
This piece Husband Jim gave me as a Christmas gift,
I thought it was sweet that he picked it out
and gifted it to me for Christmas.
It's coming along, it's coming along!
