With the weather cooling off, I realize I miss doing needle point. Looking for cute pictures, sayings, and designs is fun. I just started doing this in 2007.
This was my very first pillow. I still have it and always keep it out somewhere in my home. I since have completed about 4 other pillows...but "simplify" holds a special place in my heart.

The "friends" pillow I made for some very special friends. This is the only pillow I have ever made and gave away. I still smile when I see a picture of it.
"Live Well" is a pillow that reminds me of winter, hot cocoa, and blankets. It was so cold while I was working on it. I always had a hot drink and a blanket on my legs while working.

Thanks for the advice. I have to watch out for my eyes.She is good at slapping a person in the face when she has something in her hands.But you are it is better when she has something to hold.

I love your pillows! I'm thinking what can I make this fall and winter. After I make something I feel so good about it and myself. Thanks for giving me inspiration!

These pillows are super cute! They are perfect statement pillows to make a regular ol' couch or chair extra special. I love touches like that!

I love that last one especially. I can't do neddlepoint, cross stitch, anything like that. My eyes go bonkers, and I simply don't have the patience!

I love the "Live Well" pillow with the stripe fabric. Needlepoint is something I appreciate, but do not have the patience for! With paint, you can have almost instant gratification!

OMGOSH, these are just too darned cute. My Grandmother made us quite a few sets of pillowcases with needlepoint desings on them, years ago. I have used them very few times, I love just looking at them though.

Thanks for stopping by.... so nice to "meet" you.
