Portraits in Needlepoint
Gay Ann Rogers, Needlework

Some years ago a magazine article inspired me to stitch a portrait of Elizabeth 1.
In the same year I stitched miniatures of Mary, Queen of Scots and Bess of Hardwick. I was on an Elizabethan kick for sure.
I had had enough of portraits by the time I finished the three and I returned to stitching my favorite genre: samplers.
People kept asking me please to stitch another portrait and I kept saying no -- until DH suggested Catherine the Great.
Here are my portraits so far.
