Thank you for your kind words Jasonchung.
Yes, Niccolino, I enjoy admiring your tapestries as they reflect a lot of love and effort have been put into them.
You are very welcome, jasonchung. I'm glad you are enjoying my tapestries.
Very neat work. Thank you Niccolino for sharing.
Thanks Ardy - yes, I'll try and post some more pics of my work - need to get the camera clicking first though!
Beautiful work, Nicky. Wow. Such things are so nice to do but framing is expensive. I have a few things that never got completed to a usable point. I hope you'll share more of your work. This is lovely. Thank you.
Thanks Joe - glad you like it.
Thanks threadyourneedle - I keep intending to get one of those daylight lamps but they are expensive and, alas, other things take precedence. I do have a clip-on magnifier with led light, but the magnifier has two strengths so it gives me a headache, but the light is good. I'd love to see some of your needlework as it sounds so lovely, but I notice you don't post.
Beautiful piece, Nicky! It brings back pleasant memories of my mother doing needle point many years ago. ~Joe
Thanks for the info Niccolino, I know what you mean about eyesight, I always have my bright light and magnifyer handy. As I am almost out of wall space, I have been making a lot of pillows from my needlework. A lot of the patterns are 16x16 or less and make great cushions. Will look forward to seeing more of your needlework.
Thanks, lauralyn. Threadyourneedle - I bought the canvas on eBay. It's a Gobelin one and is really quite large - not sure where I'll find a frame for it though! As with so many of my tapestries, it's rolled up in the bottom of my bag in the bottom of the wardrobe! I love stitching them, but am not good at getting them made up. The background on this one was a bit tedious, especially as I stitch mainly at night and it's a black background, and my eyesight isn't what it was! I'll post a few more pics of my tapestries in the coming days/weeks, but need to get better shots of them as the ones I have, I've noticed, are not that good - this was about the best of the bunch for now.
Lovely subject. Where did you get the pattern? Would't mind doing a picture of Clematis.
That's a really nice piece of needle point.
