Needlework Main

I've been doing some sort of needlework since I was in grade school.  My mother and grandmother taught me embroidery, starting on dishtowels.  I recently found a dishtowel I had given to my grandmother with my hand print embroidered on it.  In high school I remember working to find funds to by books and crewel needlework kits.

In college at North Dakota State, I discovered Nordic Needle, the most wonderful needlework store of hardanger and cross stitch.  I quickly became addicted to cross stitch and came home and introduced Mom and Grandma to it. 

Recently I've picked up counted canvas work, as 32-ct linen is getting a little too small to work. :-(  I'm in love with the counted canvas work as I've found a good selection that look like quilt patterns, another love of mine.
