Hi all,

Do you have a vintage kit or pattern you would like to work? Please join me! I'll be working on three vintage owl needlepoints I got on etsy from morningK.

I am completely new to needlepoint, but I am trudging ahead anyhow.

Anyone care to join in?

Do you have the link so that I could find this pattern?  I am working on a owl embroidery project right now.  I adapted a design that I have on a t-shirt.  I think that what I am working on will eventually become a pillow for my couch, but I would love to do more.  I love the owls!  Smiley

Thanks~

Yep - here are the links:

It's a cute series featuring a baby owl's first night, his "first plight" and his first flight Smiley

I got a really neat Zodiac pattern from 1971, and I've just completed Virgo on a handkerchief, and am now doing Capricorn. Can that count?

I'm working on a vintage owl needlepoint from 1973 right now!  I've finished the design (done in bargello and long stitch) and am now trudging through completing the background (large background/boring/can only work on it if watching TV or talking to others). 

I purchased it on ebay, but the pic isn't available any more.  I'll post a pic when 1) I'm complete it or 2) I figure out how to upload pics from my digital camera . . . whichever happens first!

I'm working on a vintage pillowcase, one of a set of two that I got from a local thrift shop last week.  This being an Internet world, I quickly acquired several other vintage stamped linens, and look forward to stitching along with y'all.

Cool, Therisa!  I can't wait to see the FO.

And, wow, Anya!  I love the mods you made!!   Shocked
Thanks for sharing the patterns, too.

I'm nearly finished with my Vitamin Parade.  I just need to do the underlining and the lettering.  I'm deciding what stitches and colors to use atm.
