21 Needlepoint Projects in 2021 #ndlpt21in21

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

 

Hello Love!

If you follow me on Instagram, YOU KNOW my new-found love for needlepointing. I started my first project last year and I've had SO much fun with it! When I started seeing the #ndlpt21in21 hashtag floating around IG, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I also decided that this Christmas that I want to do a small tree full of needlepoint ornaments. It's going to be so sweet and I can't wait to get all the pieces done.

I joined a needlepoint club where we have themes every month and I'll se sharing each of them with you here. I'll be updating this blog post every few weeks so be sure to keep checking back so you can see all the fun canvases.

Since needlepointing is a pretty expensive hobby, I plan on finishing all the ornaments myself instead of sending them off to be done. That being said I'll be picking easy shapes s so I won't struggle too much. 😂

For the month of January I stitched 3 pieces. Two travel ornaments (the theme for January) and my favorite, the "my give a damn's busted" piece, which I plan to frame and put on my desk. 

You can shop these pieces here:

Learning to needlepoint with NeedlePaint

Tuesday, August 4, 2020

Thanks to Needlepaint for sponsoring today's post!

Hello Love!


2020 was the year we all stayed home. We all stayed home and watched TV, didn't get out of our jammies and picked up new hobbies, right? Did you pick up a new hobby over the past year? While my family wishes I would have picked up more cooking skills, needlepointing is what stole my heart. It started popping up in my Instagram feed and with every fun design I saw, I knew I wanted to get my hands on a canvas and start punching. 


Since I love Boston so much, I decided to start my needlepoint journey with this needlepoint belt from Needlepaint. I reached out to them with a few beginner questions and they were incredibly supportive and helped me get exactly what I needed. In my kit they sent me the printed canvas, threads, stitch guide and a printed color aide for guidance. 


I'm so thankful they sent paperwork so I could see exactly how to do the stitches. While there's many fun ones to try, this belt just requires a simple continental or tent stitch. Perfect for newbies like me.
Once I get the hang of it, I'll be back to show you more!
