My World of Needlework


It's the New Year and one needs a bit of spice in one's life.


Look what I sneaked out and found!


Great inspiration for the New Year!

Above is the map of how far Queendom Website has traveled,

nice for MacSoph and me, but doubly nice because it shows that needlework is indeed alive and well right round the world.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Who is the prettiest of them all?

You will be able to decide the answer

on May 1, 2017.

I sneaked out for some New Year's Retail Therapy on Saturday and look what I came home with.

How pretty are these! Admittedly, you have to like green to like them.

This is the crux of my new stash for 2017. I don't have to limit myself to this, it is just a start.

Do you have any ideas for me?

If you do, I will post them here and seriously consider them.


I think these cry out to be geometrics,

perhaps with some bargello,

and the addition of some different threads for texture,

maybe a diaphanous green goddess,

for certain a green heart to see how everything fits,

add red to the mix for Christmas,

purple, green and white, the colors of women's suffrage,

but mainly green and gold and white.

Let's not overlook a garden.


I had an interesting breakthrough in the past month:

a way to make effortless smooth curves.

They open up so many possibilities, but I don't want to overlook

the beautiful geometric forms of needlepoint.


As always, with new stash, it looks endless and so full of possibilities.

We'll see.
