Needlepoint Pillows 2

Two more pillows were completed and delivered to my client.  One was a small print of random color splashes (sure, there is a word for it, but it eludes me at the moment).  The other was a hound dog / beagle that was challenging to to the nature of the needlepoint stitching not having a solid background.  For this one I ended up lining a cut of white cotton sheeting with fusible interfacing then doing a reverse applique to give both body and a regular rectangular shape.  From there I stitched random quilting lines to set off the border from the main picture.  It turned out fairly well I think.  My client certainly seemed happy with it.

Needlepoint Pillows 1

I have recently taken on some commission work of turning completed needlepoint canvases into pillows for a neighbor.  It started with 4 canvases and a couple more have been added.  Three are done and given back to her.  Two are on the blocking board.  The last came in when I gave her the first 3 and still needs to be blocked.  It’s been fun digging through the stash to find the right backing and, in one case so far, trim.

Here are the three that are done.
