Wow + needlepoint = two words I didn't think went together

Hi friends, Wow! Have you seen the beautiful new Charley Harper needlepoint canvases over at The Purl Bee? I think you'd remember if you had, but let me just jog your memory... [caption id="attachment_227" align="aligncenter" width="256" caption="Photo from The Purl Bee."] Photo from The Purl Bee.[/caption] They are exquisite. I am in love. When I saw this picture and read the accompanying post I got really excited – in the sweaty palmed, fluttery heart, check-my-bank-balance-because-I- need-that-right-now way that I get when I see a craft that I really, really, really want to make and keep in my house (or maybe even on my person) for ever. Apparently I'm not the only person who felt that way, because when I checked online this morning there were only 4 kits left, compared to the dozen or so that were available a couple of days ago. No matter. It's worth visiting the blog post to find information about Charley Harper, a great (and previously unknown to me) American artist – and they provide tons of links, too, so you can keep on learning. And I've mentioned before that Purl's technical know-how is outstanding, so if you're interested in needlepoint, they'd be a great place to start. Have a great day, folks.
