Wow!  I wish my Gram was still with me.  I didn't enjoy her craftiness when I was young, and now I miss her.  I'm so happy that you can enjoy your Grandma.

This is so awesome!  I have TONS of black plastic canvas laying around.  I'd love to try to make one. 

What is in the center holding it together?  I must know.

Thanks!! Grin

I had one of those years ago. It definitely is plastic needlepoint canvas and the center support of mine was heavy wire, like a coat hanger. I left mine outside and it survived several years, after a while the weather deteriorates the plastic. I love that you got to make one with your grandma.
