|the ocular proof|
perfect time to find different yarn and needles, right? right.
my cousin had been needlepointing--a craft i had never tried--and for christmas i wanted to buy for her some new needlepoint kits. that is how i found the lovely 70s pillow kit you see to the left.
on one hand, i love it. it is very easy and i can just kick back and work on something while i am listening to the radio or watching a movie. much of this pillow has been stitched while watching the second season of Downton Abbey. on the other hand, this, like all needlework type crafting seems slow to me. i am spoiled by knitting and crochet (and especially sewing) when it comes to amount of gratification for amount of time sent.
i am on to the border areas now, which means more strawberries. i will post another picture when i have more progress, but i have also picked up a sweater i put aside last year.
