I always have a needlepoint project going
And for a long time I was very disciplined
Only one canvas did I possess at a time . . .
When I was almost finished, I'd order another
And then I started hanging around with Linda!
She is not a good influence!
My current project
An Erhman Tapestry canvas
A garden sampler
Bought on eBay
(for it's a discontinued canvas)
I adore samplers
(and have several -- not of my stitching-- in the bedrooms at Linderhof)
And I broke Rule No 2 with this purchase
(And that is putting down a project before it was finished and picking up another)
But it's going along quickly
I then found Ehrman had a companion sampler
Which I ordered on Ebay
(and put it in my "hobby" drawer --
it's third in line to be worked on)
For as soon as I finish the first sampler
I need to continue to work on this canvas
A Christmas gift from a dear friend
And a canvas that I adore!
Needlepoint is such a worthwhile hobby for me
It "entertains" me for a long time
And so the price per hour is very low, indeed!
And I love working with the wools
Plus needlepoint lasts and lasts . . .
I still have the first pillow I worked on in 1970
And I still have my first sampler that I did as a birthday gift for my husband in 1970
And they look as good as they did when they were first stitched.
