Fast forward a few decades later and I have nearly completed one of my high school projects - a needlepoint pillow sampler in a lovely pale pink. I've also finished two other tapestries and am now
struggling loving my new project which uses a 18 mesh canvas and cotton thread.
The truth is that the more I needlepoint, the less I look at my phone. I also seem to be eating less because you can't really eat or drink with a canvas in your lap. I like the fact that for the most part, I'm working on portable projects and that they are good conversation starters.
It is great for me because TH is also doing some needlepoint, so she's okay with me dragging her to needlepoint stores wherever we travel.
My favorite thing to make - pillows. I estimate that I'll have completed six of holiday accent pillows. I can't believe I've become that person.
