That’s the title of a wonderful post on Kreinik’s blog. It’s a natural reaction when we see a lovely piece of needlework.
We already stitch, we know how hard our medium is. We could even be former practitioners of other needlearts, as I am.
Kreinik asked noted teacher Ann Strite-Kurz about this and reports on her answer. It’s wonderful look at the difference between charted needlepoint and painted canvas.
