My crafting goals for the year are to learn to crochet and needlepoint. Oh, and to make lots of quilts. Let’s see how it goes. I love these Jonathan Adler Bargello needlepoint pillows (shown below). I guess these are handmade by someone somewhere and not made by a machine, but I can’t seem to find out where these are made. There is a mention of Peru on his site. Anyone know?
So I thought I would find a lot of contemporary needlepoint on Etsy, but no. Too time consuming? Too boring? Seems to me like needlepoint gives you a lot of freedom to come up with your own designs easily. Here’s a needlepoint sampler for a nursery from 66 stitches. Some bracelets from Carrie Wolf, and some cool magnets from Eclectic Selections (pictured below).
