Here’s a picture of the very first piece of needlepoint I did, waaaaaaaaay back in my teens. (goodnesss, that’s long time ago, LOL).
I wonder why I used such a vivid green for the eyes? Perhaps because I liked the look of it against the hot magenta background. Funny thing, but those are still 2 of my favourite colours.
I was so pleased with the way this turned out, and in fact I still like it. Ok, so some of the stitches aren’t terribly even, and some of them are completely missing; but hey, it’s a cat, so it can’t be too bad!
Did I mention that I am a Cat person? 🙂
I would love to see a picture of some of your earliest work. Come on, post a picture in your blog, or on Flickr or wherever, then head on over to Janet’s blog, Nuts About Needlepoint, where you might even win her give-away!
The other reason I am posting something old
Because I haven’t got anything new. I have recently developed what my doctor calls Mouse Elbow. It used to be Tennis Elbow, but as I have never played tennis, but play with my mouse every day, I think the new name is much more apt. Whatever it’s called it hurts, especially when doing embroidery or knitting.
Hmmmm so what am I supposed to do in the evenings while the television is on, if I cannot embroider or knit? Just sit and watch television??? How boring is that! So I sit and sulk, LOL.
Actually, it’s getting better and I am able to embroider for short periods. But not enough to have anything new to show – – hence something old.
