Loretta Spears Beginner Project & Hobbit Stitching

ImageBeginning Needlepoint Project – design by Loretta Spears

Using tapestry wool for the Bakelite Phone was so nice to work with, I wanted to stitch another project using that wonderful wool.  This is a beginner needlepoint piece that Loretta Spears taught in her shop back in the 1980’s and was my first needlepoint class.  This will be the second time I am stitching this project — wish I could post a photo of the original but it has gone missing.

The canvas is 14 count mono and the wool is Elsa Williams tapestry.

I interrupted the needlepoint project to work on the Frodo and Galadriel cross stitch for Hobbit Stitching Day.  Today, I will be putting it away for a while — I did manage to get about 800 stitches in this week.  The portion I am stitching is the top right corner.  It is very confetti intense.
