Harper Lee

My niece Whitney, whose favorite colors are blue and orange, has a fabulous dog named Harper Lee.

Whitney is a needlepoint novice, so I thought it would be fun for her to use three basic stitches— tent, scotch, and brick —to stitch this canvas.When finished, it will look great framed, as a pillow, or even on the side of a big tote bag.

Bamboo Pillow

A friend of mine lives in a beautiful home with plate glass windows looking out into a lush garden. She was interested in stitching a project with a theme of bamboo: a spare design using a basketweave stitch and made into a box pillow.

She did a lovely job. The red box adds a pop of color and shows (in Roman numerals) the year it was stitched. I have fun creating unique designs that are the wish of the stitcher!
