Restyling with Needlework
Today's Crafty Inspiration hails from May 1942 McCall's Three Magazines in One and is a World War II suggestion for updating last year's wardrobe or adding a little panache to this year's new attire. Lovely needlepoint accents give anything a Folk Art flair and I'm finding myself in a folk art frenzy these days. Needlepoint is not as difficult as it looks, as a child I loved doing needlework with a hoop and embroidery floss and I've featured a few needlework projects in my books and magazine projects.
Do you do needlework? My friend Corrine of Jafabrit's Art has infused her fine art with embroidery and it's very compelling stuff.
Big thank you to Eileen Bergen of The Artful Crafter for awarding The Versatile Blogger award here. I don't like to name favorites, so just consider yourself awarded, gentle reader!
