Weekend at D's Lakehouse

I got to spend about 24 hours out at the lake with the SWANs. It was a short break from the remodel. I took the Hart Hunt from Diane Ulmer Pedersen by Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs.  The stitch guide is by Amy Bunger from Amy's Golden Strand.  I got two fields done since we do nothing but eat, stitch and sleep.  And visit the whole time we are awake.  It is so much fun.  I had to leave early to remortar my new fireplace but it turned out really well so all is good.

Third field up is Horizontal Victorian in two strands of silk

Fourth field up is Florentine Spike in two strands of overdyed cotton



  1. Glad you got to take a break. Was this a birthday celebration? Call me when you are settled and have time for lunch. And by the way, I love this piece!

    1. No, just a needlepoint getaway. I went to Dallas for 24 hours for my birthday. I got to celebrate with my whole family! Pencil me in for June! Thanks!

  2. What a beautiful design. I haven't done needlepoint for years but find myself interested in taking it up again. It has something to do with finding two completed canvases in a trunk. I finished them forty (yes, 40!) years ago and then forgot about them!

  3. Thank you! I hope it inspires you to pick up needlepoint again.
