In May this year I blogged about how to quickly stitch a challah cover by just stitching the center. Here is another idea, where I stitch a swath across the middle from end to end, and add material to the top and the bottom to fill it out. This reduced stitching time by about two thirds, […]
A really cool idea. This designer stitched up these modern mesh-backed chairs with classic needlepoint motifs, such as the floral pattern pictured above. Very original and interesting. See more images at his Office Products section.

This interesting project was adapted from an illustration found in a medical textbook created in 1899. It is an anatomically-correct depiction of the human heart. From the creator’s blog post: I am a woman newly obsessed with needlepoint, and this anatomical heart needlepoint is the first evidence I have to show of my obsession. The […]
