Free needlepoint pattern from Felicity Hall

While poking around The Making Spot blog recently, I ended up at Felicity Hall's website. She's based in the UK and designs contemporary needlepoint kits. I'll admit that I'm way too impatient for embroidery, and the only needlepoint I've admired is a pillow or two from Jonathan Adler. But check out Felicity's letters and numbers! Reminds me of Jessica Hisch's Daily Drop Cap project, only in wool. Pretty cool.

You can download a complimentary chart to make the word "love" here.

Or purchase charts for individual numbers and letters. Make a pillow with your friend's wedding date, spell out some words to hang on the wall, or stitch your initials.

Those are very cool! But I think I'm also a bit too impatient for needlepoint. Or at least, I find it hard to persuade myself to spend that much time on something that's so purely decorative. I do add little bits of very amateurish embroidery to stuff occasionally, but nothing too labour-intensive.

These prints are very charming. They remind me of when my mother used to needlepoint -- a bit of welcomed nostalgia!

Interesting! She has also a free pattern for a Christmas ornament that I'd try. Thanks for sharing.
