I found two cute I guess needlework pieces at the thrift store. I just happened to pick them up when the thrift lady walked by and she said I could have both for a buck! I was sold. I really thought she would have wanted more.
The owl is about 5x7 and is in pretty good shape. I am thinking I might wash him and the other becuase I am not sure who done it and they might have not been as clean handed as needed.
The other is about an 8x10 or bigger and is is all out of shape. How do I go about blocking it? Do I need anything special? I know how to block when crocheting but not this. With crochet you pretty much wet the item and then pull it into place and then put a towel over it to help it dry once pretty dry you take the towel off and let it dry overnight.
Here are the pics of the two items. I think I got a great deal and they will look prefect hanging someplace.
Plus these piece have made me want to learn to hand embroider and maybe learn to needlepoint.
Thanks for any help.
