The Photos are Up

This needlepoint is the first of three needlepoint I would love to complete in 2012.  I call this piece "For My Mom" because it is a tribute to her and her beautiful flowers.  The artist is Chris Roberts-Antineau.  I love her art work and if you'd like to see more of it you can visit her website, http://www.chrisroberts-antieau.com/.  I think (and I've been told I'm completely correct) that the woman in this piece looks just like me!  I'm the woman holding the flowers on which sits a pretty blue and yellow bird (my mom).

I started this piece w/such gusto!  I just knew it would be done in no time at all!  Unfortunately, I've run into a couple of flowers that have me stumped and I'm hoping this needlework community can help me out.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.  I hope to get the photos of the other 2 pieces of needlepoint to be completed in 2012 up soon and, if any of you have any ideas for my flowers or anything else for that matter please let me know. 

I would love to start a cross stitch sampler this year also.  We can debate later on if that will be completed in 2012!

Have a blessed day!  Anne


  1. Oh wow that piece looks amazing. I can't wait to see how you do it and with what types of stitches. I only cross-stitch and haven't tried needlepoint yet.
