These are two Zodiac vintage Gemini needlepoint kits from 1977.
I bought the kits on etsy.



The Libra one had about an inch done on one corner and that was it.



The Aries one wasn't worked at all.

I finished the Libra needlepoint in December and the Aries one in January.
The kits had real Persian wool too. Great quality and they just don't make graphics like these anymore.

I love retro vintage needlepoints!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

These are well done. I don't normally like things that are in this style-I mean the graphics- but this caught my eye. For some reason I thought they were cross-stitched candy bar wrappers. Go figure.
