My 1st ever Needlepoint
























This is my first ever needlepoint project and the design was by Loretta Spears (I think that she is now either chronically ill or deceased and her designs are no longer available unless on Ebay or somewhere similar) this is one of her series of Mystery Designs.

I was only able to attempt this and complete it with the help of my wonderful friend Pierrette who held my hand from start to finish.

We chat daily but for around five weeks we not only chatted but exchanged photos of Bargello Symphony daily where she stood over me with a big stick (LOL).

This is the end result, Pierrette also completed the same project along side me for herself, however I changed mine very slightly as I always like to be different. If you view hers see if you can see the difference and I do not mean the way that she has mounted and framed hers.

I need someone with a big stick standing over me, so I can get some of my UFO's finished. LOL This needlepoint is amazing, the patience you must have.

Terry,

What memories Bargello Symphony brings back to mind when we did our own little "Stitch Along".

I am telling you I have never stitched so fast in my entirely life just to keep up with you :-)

All those Victorian steps that seem to go on and on and on ....

Having somebody to commiserate with felt pretty good at times (rofl).

I am so glad that we finally stitched that project and did it together.

Pierrette =^..^=
