New BOSTON canvas

My friend Lori (Expressions in NeedleArt in Canandaigua, NY) and I had been MOONING over the work of this wonderful folk artist and mutually decided that they had to be licensed in needlepoint and agreed that MAGGIE was the one to point in the right direction. Voila - it happened. Here is the Boston skyline and the Public Garden. The artist is Karla Gerard.

I'll post the other one tomorrow.

I had to tear myself away from my needlepoint projects, and told my other counted thread projects that they just HAD to wait their turn. It was time to knit for fall. I was thrilled to get this one on the needles and off in one week. Since it will be mine when the store is finished with it, of course it is brown! I'm not the ruffle type, preferring a more conservative look, but this is subtle. One hank of Mushishi and a set of interchangeable knitting needles and you too can have one, but you'll have a choice of colors.
