I do not do needlepoint. Maybe someday I might attempt it, but for now.....well...I have enough unfinished projects to keep me busy for the rest of the year....maybe longer.
One day while I was thrifting, I came across a vegtable needlepoint that I thought would add some charm to my pantry. I know it is just a closet under the steps, but I like to add some visual interests to otherwise boring places in my home....because I do spend almost all my time here.
There were 2 other colorful needlepoint pictures that someone had put a lot of work into (and then paid to have framed).
Something in me just couldn't leave them behind.
They were priced really cheap....which instead of thrilling me for finding such a great deal, I actually felt a little bad for the creative soul that put so much time into the pictures.....only to have them end up donated at a thrift store.
I really had no "vision" as to where I would hang them.
So I hung them in my line of vision on the wall next to my sewing table.....now I can enjoy them while I sit and sew. Lately my time at the sewing machine has been dealing with the basket of mending.....my new needlepoint pictures made even that job seem enjoyable!!!
It isn't too late to leave a comment in my previous Soap give-a-way post for the chance to win a free bar of Apple Valley Natural Soap!
I should have mentioned how much I like their Kitchen Soap.....I thought of it tonight as I washed the onion smell right off my hands....it washes away garlic also. I keep a bar in a little dish right next to the sink....in the cutest little dish that I found at the Goodwill....of course! :)
