Judy - did you see this one "Multi-stiched mill scene - dedicated to Judy"http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=XXVLVI3JPJ
Judy - I'll be back tomorrow.PJ
PJ, I know many people who did I enjoy needlework, but we've all backed off, partly because of eyestrain. My last projects were done with high-powered magnifying lenses, and it made things a bit less enjoyable. I would guess that overall we don't do as much of it here. When my son was little, I loved making pieces to get framed for his bedroom walls. I even did a Harley Davidson logo for him when he started riding motorcycles in his twenties. He was very happy! That was a decade ago. I still have all my threads and pattern books, so there's still hope. I LOVE seeing other people's work though, so that's why I asked. I'd love to see your work.
Thank you Judy - so glad you appreciated the puzzle. It was great fun to create it. This one was a gift from a family member. Most of my embroidery pieces have been given away or sold, but there are some left - to be part of future puzzles... Handicraft hobbies are popular over here - how is it in New Mexico?PJ
PJ, did you do the cross stitch/ embroidery? I think it's great the way you made a pattern out of the same image, making it look like cloth (to me anyway) and then swirled it and put the needlework in the middle. Also like the frame, so great job. I used to cross stitch and do crewel, so I'm suspecting it's yours, remembering you saying you'd done almost every kind of sewing. Way to go and thanks for sharing.
