I've been having way too much fun, lately.... One can tell just by looking around the house!! My bedroom is a mess, the bathrooms need some deep cleaning, the kitchen island has suddenly vanished under so much clutter, the laundry is dangerously piled up, I see kids shoes everywhere....!! So, I made it my mission to not have any fun junking or crafting this week and tackle the messy home!!! Progress has been slow (yes, unless I have a deadline, I procrastinate!!!) but steady, I seem to get distracted easily and suddenly find myself sewing (..."but I just needed to finish this..."!!) or eating, or BLOG HOPPING!!!
Because I'm pretty sure you do not want to see the dangerously high pile of clothes or the invisible kitchen counter, I thought I would show you some of my favorite needlepoint pieces!!! My paternal grandmother taught me how to needlepoint and cross stitch when I was little, and I have always loved it!! I have a x-stitch project (a reproduction of an old sampler) that was started about ten years ago and has been idle ever since, waiting to be picked up again (one day, I hope!). I love how needlepoint warms up my home, because I know it was made with patience and love!!
