I was sick and tired of "nice" needlepoint and decided to turn what I learned from Girl Scouts into an easy yet adorable project.



Aha! Very nice! Very versatile! Very useful for all those dropped straightpins that always find their way deep into my carpet.



And for those angsty, gloomy days when the machine won't sew straight.



One for the computer nerd.



And a coin purse, fully lined and with a zipper, done in nearly the same fashion.

I found this is a lovely project that only takes a short amount of time, cheap materials, and a scrap of fun fabric for the rear of the cushion. It's a nice gift for those in your life who sew or appreciate stichery, and a good way to practice your French knots.

Thank you.  Grin

Those are really cool Smiley I'd make the second one but I live with my parents and I don't think they're really the type to appreciate that kind of humour Cheesy

It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

I bought my husband a subversive stiitching kit because for reasons unknown to even him he can cross stitch.

and he said...."but can we really hang it on the wall when we are done? what are people going to say?"
I said "we can just point to the sign"

I think the kits are good for people just learning to sew, but as you can see, it's pretty simple to come up with creative dirty-dirty on your own. Smiley

HUZZAH FOR POINTING TO THE SIGN.  Grin

HAHAHA!   Cheesy  Lovely.  I can't see the pincushions  Cry but I like the framed "Go XXXX yourself".  For a while I've been meaning to embroider a little doily tabletop thingy with "F@$k off" or "Kiss my @$$" but haven't gotten around to it.  Guess I'm not so original after all!   CARPEJUGULUM - I would LOVE to see your pics if you could try to fix them!
