needlepoint update and a san francisco shop

Time for a needlepoint update!

Had a great trip to San Francisco last weekend with my daughter, with interviews lined up, and every intention of moving there. We fantasized about living in a city surrounded by such beauty. After viewing several TINY 300 sf apartments, for triple what she pays in Chicago, and after walking up a 90 degree angle hill to get to Starbucks for a quick pick me up, she decided that no, she would not in fact move to San Fran.. She is very happy about staying in Chicago. Don't get me wrong, we had an absolute blast! We saw Hamilton, partook in the delicious and nutritious restaurants, but it truly did not seem to be a very practical or realistic choice for her.

I could not wait to visit Needlepoint Inc! I have admired their website online, and could not wait to visit their shop. I took lots of photos which I will share right after I update you on my personal canvas collection which seems to be growing quite rapidly.

First of all, how about this blue and white bowl of tangerines :)

(Look at the fly on the lemon!)

I mean... darling.

Bought this on a whim.. Not as excited about it now, but I'm sure I'll be happy to pull it out someday...

Remember this one? My first needlepoint this time around. I am moving right along!

Finished this one pretty quickly...

And now for the photos from Needlepoint Inc!

Check out these stacks!

Can you even imagine?

I mean...

So, wow, right? Such a beautiful selection of needlepoint canvases!

You can visit Needlepoint Inc here.

I usually keep it local at Village Needlepoint here.

Happy Stitching!
