Airing out stash


Speaking of closets, I’ve had these needlepoint canvases stashed away for so long I’d plain forgotten about them.

Aren’t they gorgeous?

The dromedary (camels are the ones with two humps) was designed by N. M. Arts, and the quilt by Susan Roberts.  Their Highnesses, sorry, but I bought them at an auction site eons ago, and was never informed who designed them.  I just loved her face, and his sausage legs.

I might do Mr. Dromedary for Christmas, given all the muffled complaining he’s been doing lately.  I bet you if I dropped everything that I could stitch him in a day, or two.

George the III and Queen Charlotte can wait.  After all, it looks like they have some making up to do first.  As for that geometrical quilt, well, it never complains.

That’s the thing I’ve noticed about canvases:  some of them are really patient, some are insistent.
