CAN YOU TELL I HAVE A "THING"?

























Two wonderful bloggers are sponsoring events today. Please go over to see Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses for links to the Pillow Party participants (That's a lot of "p"s. Aren't you glad you weren't standing in front of me when I said that?) and go over to see Mary at Little Red House for links to mosaics. As always, thank you so much for coming to see me. laurie

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

A pillow party- how fun!! I love the needlepoint- so appreciate this art. I made one needlepoint canvas and it took me forever! Thought I would recover all my dining chairs in needlepoint but after the first try at it----no way! Think I want all those tushes on that piece of art that took forever!!

Janean said...

the best examples of needlework pillows i've seen....very beautiful!

Mellodee said...

Do you do needlepoint yourself or just collect it. (well, not "Just") I hope most of it was purchased or given to you, because if you made all of these things, or even most of them, I may take to my bed for a week!! Perhaps you can guess I have 10 thumbs when it comes to sewing, crafts, needlework, crochet, etc., etc., and so forth....and I am easily intimidated by talented people!!

I love those things, but I just have no talent or patience for it. The skill set I have is focused in theater: acting, vocals, directing, and such. And a little writing on the side.... :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Larie

I thought your mosaic was so wonderful! You are so talented in making both beautiful mosaics and graphics. Your needlepoints are so pretty!

Mary said...

Oh Laurie, now I have a "thing" for all YOUR needlepoint and toile! lol Thanks so much for sharing at MM. :)

Carol said...

Gorgeous mosaic!
