Charley Harper Needlepoint.

This needlepoint came as a painted canvas from Purl Soho. It was pricey, considering all the work that needs to go into it but as a piece of art that can be passed down, I see it as worth every penny. My grandmother had a huge needlepoint of Arabian horses my aunt made. I would marvel and stare at the huge needlework on the wall. I wonder whatever happened to it when my grandmother moved and wish I could see if it has altered from my memory at all.

I don’t remember specifically, but this took me somewhere from 6-12 months to stitch. It waited for a frame for at least another year. I adore it’s simple palette and graphic shapes. I am so pleased with the character it gives the room.
