More yarns, loops, threads and thoughts

New rug, my pillow

Yay. I got the rug I've been wanting. After a year of watching it, I got it on sale. Its soooo soft and Leo looks really pretty on it. The gold stripes that surround the black stripes remind me of his sweet eyes. I've also been receiving and reviewing some samples of the first line of needlepoint pillows that I designed, debuting next year. So theres just a tiny tease up there. It is so fun to see my art translated into needlepoint. Really, really cool. Makes me want to needlepoint actually. These pillows will be finished goods though, and not like the kind you do yourself. Still, though. It makes me want to needlepoint something myself. But I'll just lay around and think for now.
I'm happy. xoAM

  1. Now that I think of it, I've been waiting around about 20 years for some really great needlepoint designs to come out! You tease! Can't wait to see them.

    (And congrats on the rug!)

  7. You inspire me! I need to get off the computer and CREATE! Choices... it's all about choices.
    So... with this comment I'm going to close my computer and wash some fabrics and dream and plan. Maybe a list is in order.
    Thanks Talented Lady!

    Needlepoint is addictive, but never ending I have found (I've been working on the same cushion cover for over 10 years - well, NOT working on it really!). It's on my blog somewhere if you care to look.
