Reflective serendipity

"Hmmmmmmm, what if I try to do...More......some reflections in needlepoint? It would be rather difficult, given the rigidly gridded nature of the medium, but getting something fun would be the challenge and pleasure, wouldn't it?," I had been pondering for days. Then this post popped up in one of my favorite blogs, "The Textile Blog." (http://thetextileblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/virginia-abrams-reflections.html)

I can't display any pictures because of copyright laws, but, clicking on the title of my post, you can see some lyrical examples by a textile artist called Virginia Abrams, who gave her permission to John Hopper for his inspirational and informative blog "The Textile Arts," which provides so many stimuli for needlepoint projects that it would take a hundred life times to do them all! Now that the bug has bitten, it's very likely that just such a challenge will pop up as a project of mine, once the things already in the pipeline have been finished.
