One silver lining of 2020 might be an increased passion for needlepoint! In March and April, while the nation was under strict quarantine regulations, I started to needlepoint daily and I have more or less continued that pace throughout the summer months. My mom taught me how to needlepoint when I was a teenager and it has always been a hobby I have enjoyed! However, this year my interest in needlepoint increased tenfold! I am always on the hunt for new canvases, trying to learn new stitches or needlepoint tips and tricks.
If you are new to the world of needlepoint, I shared this blog post back in May on how to get started and the perfect canvases for beginners.
Today, I thought it might be fun to share a few of my recently completed needlepoint projects! This group all fall under the Christmas theme (I love a quick Christmas ornament!) It is helpful/ideal to work on your Christmas canvases at the start of the calendar year so you can send your stitched canvas off to your finisher by the middle of the summer so you receive your ornaments back in time for the holiday season (finishing can sometimes take as long as 3-4 months!)
I am always looking to find new canvases to add to my needlepoint stash!
