Simple, inexpensive creations. A positive way to help reduce personal stresses and unwind for a while. It can be done bit by bit, and you can see immediate results. These are some of the many reasons why I've gotten back into needlepoint. The biggest reason was stress reduction, which is something I've desperately needed.
For those that don't know, needlepoint, is best described as weaving yarn/string through canvas - whether fabric or plastic - to make simple or intricate designs. And what can be used as a design? Well pretty much anything, as seen below.
Random koala picture I printed off the net and used as a rough template. Obviously they're not great, but I'm happy with 'em.
Rough paper sketch vs finished product.
Bits and pieces all jumbled together.
So, to any crafters out there, what do you get out of needle-pointing and what do you like to make? Sound off; opinions welcome.
