Day 180 Theme #239 Relaxation

31 08 2011

I do painted canvas needlepoint for RELAXATION. I had finished these needlepoints a few years ago and I finally had them framed. The mats are done with fabric that is dry mounted onto the mat board.  The above needlepoint is called “Auntie Sarah and Aunt Esther” because they look just like my great-aunts.

The next needlepoint says “Relax or Perish, You decide”. I like the funkiness of it.

The framing is just as much fun as the needlepoint! Your work is always so colorful and funky.

These are fabulous. I don’t have the patience for this type of craft and really admire those who can create these.

These pieces are so labor intensive. Funny how I always thought of needlepointing as more rustic looking… LOVE the contemporary style.

The canvases come painted this way and then I do the stitching. I got these canvases at Village Needleworks in Omaha where I worked for a year or so when we lived there. But I have been doing needlepoint since High School.

What a wonderful way to relax, fabulous works all of them, the framing really finishes them off.

Love all of these. The first two remind me of my grandmother and her sister, both about 4’11” and rather round in shape! (Polly and Estelle)

Your talent is boundless, and your creativity even more enourmous!
