My friend Jocelyn, a marvelous New Zealand stitcher, is embarking of a fantastic needlepoint adventure to design her own needlepoint geometric as she goes along.
I think this is a simply fantastic idea and one I’m far too controlling to do. But I wish I wasn’t like that.
She has several posts so far on the project. In this first one, she describes her idea, picks her colors and prepares the ground.
Then she begins with the center and starts grappling with the design. Like many us, she would like a format for the square and chose a quilt block as the basis. If you’ve struggled with doing your own design, you will also find her thought process about size enlightening. In the third post, you see how she stitched the center block and the result.
