I am obsessed with needlepointing these days. I think about it all the time. I’ve been working on a big project that is seeming to take FOREVER, but I’ve also been trolling the internet for a new project. I usually do projects of my own design, or designs adapted from photographs, but lately I’ve been craving the ease of doing a painted canvas of someone else’s making.
I’ve done so many black and white designs in the past couple of years. Here are a few for those of you who can’t be bothered to check out my super amazing awesome needlepoint page. Look. Feast your eyes and stuff.
I know. Estelle Getty's head is totally floating. It's just the way it worked out.
Here’s what I’ve been working on lately.
It’s part of a wall hanging of 70’s TV detectives. Columbo is done, and Quincy is nearly done. Still have to do Kojak and Charlies Angels. Not sure what to do with it when I finish it when I’m 120 years old.
It will never be done.
It is huge.
But every home needs a needlepointed wall tapestry of 1970's TV detectives, am I right?
So, sick of black and white, I wanted to do something a little more cheerful.
And here’s what I’ve ordered from the internet. It’s by “Princley Creations” and I purchased it from Fireside Stitchery.
Here’s something else I want to do by JP Needlepoint Designs from theneedlepointer.com

I also started a huge wall hanging several months back - a Maggie Lane design that I can’t finish because stupid Paternayan isn’t making their stupid Paternayan yarn anymore and I can’t find enough wool to finish the stupid background. I’ll have to find a substitute for the stupid Paternayan.

Stupid Paternayan. Pull yourself together.
I realize this might not have been the post of your dreams. But it's what's on my mind. Needlepointing, and cheese. And chocolate chip cookies. The cheap kind.
So, here's a little drawing to make up for the fact that I wrote about needlepoint instead of things that are funny.
