I was entertaining the fantasy this morning that I might someday actually have time to take up needlepoint again. Back in the day (way back!) I was quite handy with pins, needles, embroidery hoops and the like. My grandmothers looked forward to their new pairs of knitted slippers, complete with pom-poms, every Christmas in my late grade school years.
A visit to Ehrman Tapestry led to a visit to the great Kaffe Fassatt’s website. I adore this man’s style and have several of his beautiful, inspiring books on my shelf. Now I am not only fantasizing about needlepoint projects….
But also knitting….
and most especially mosaic….
A girl can dream.

I too remember the simpler days when I could snuggle up in the evening with my latest cross stitch project, hooked rug, or knitting item… oh, those were the days! I love these inspirational photos, they remind me of a great pair of Betsey Johnson shoes! Keep on dreamin’ girl!

I’m dreaming with you too. Thank you, that post brought welcome colour to this dreary British day. I met Kaffe years ago, he was as handsome as his creations.
Well done to you and team for the floor in your previous post. That was an epic! Fabulous.
