Does anyone do needlepoint?
I've wanted to make some needlepoint dining chair seats for many years now. My grandmother and I talked about doing it, but then she got sick and wasn't able to do her handwork any longer. Although she's no longer with us, I still want to go ahead with the project.
We had planned to use a pattern with three morning glory type flowers and a few heart shape leaves (in purple, dark pink, blue and green) with different color backgrounds. The backgrounds would be soft pink, light spring green, light blue and lavender.
I was wondering if anyone has done a similar project. I know you have to stitch the background, a certain way...so it doesn't 'go diagonal' so to speak...and block the needlepoint after you finish. Any other tips, ideas? I'm not in any hurry, but it would be fun to start the first one...hopefully getting them done in time for the farmhouse remodel.
Thanks in advance and as always, I really appreciate your input! :)
