Have you ever made a needlepoint pillow? Maybe not? Me either. I'm too impatient. I can appreciate the time and work that goes into making one. I can only imagine the number of hours spent threading the yarn through each hole of the fabric.
So, with so much work and effort that goes into creating these, WHY would anyone simply give these away? Oh, I know, they are making a donation to a cause such as Goodwill or Salvation Army. And, I'm sure glad they do because I love collecting these beautiful handcrafted pillows.
These are just a few in my collection that I have sitting around my office. The bassett hound pillow isn't needlepoint but a tapestry done by machine. I loved it anyway.
So, thank you patient, talented needlepoint crafters wherever you are. I, for one, truly appreciate your hours of work. Rest assured, I will give them a good home...just keep donating them ;)
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!!
