Milan Monday 25: a circular floral pattern good for a cushion

Went to a local open air market on Friday, and saw this circular floral motif on a building, which I thought would work up nicely as a cushion, so I snapped it, turned it into a StitchPainter diagram, then a BMP image to share with you for your non-commercial personal enjoyment.

If you want to know more about the design, see my blog "My Milan (Italy)":

Have fun!

Photoless Friday (10): Needlepoint on

Great sources for all sorts of info, of course, has some very informative and interesting pages on needlepoint.

I'll be sharing more links, and I've almost finished that long-promised reading of Owen Jones' book on design principles...we'll be exploring that really soon.

In the meantime, work goes ahead on the gift needlepoint in progress. It felt so good, so relaxing, so fulfilling, after such a long time of not being able to do any(move and flu included since I'd done some).

I'm getting sleeeeeeeeeeeeeepy ... must go ... goooooooooooooooooooooooo

Milan Monday (24), again!...already!

Time whizzes by. It seems like almost yesterday that I posted the last "Milan Monday." Work, rushing around, being now tired, now frustrated, now satisfied with a day well spent. (Expected) appointments, surprises (which I hate), routine tasks to do in an unroutinely manner. Finally a long delightful walk on Sunday, and to bed too late, then, too soon, the alarm, Good Morning!

Here's a snippet of more lovely architectural decoration that can be used as a repeating border pattern. As usual, I turned the photo into a StitchPainter pattern, then saved it as a BMP file, to share with you.

A balcony for a border (Milan Monday 23)

Happy Monday to you!

Here's a gorgeous balcony in Piazza Wagner to cut-and-paste, perhaps as a repeating border.

If you're interested in the building, see my blog on Milan: My Milan (Italy),

Bye for now!

Lovely acanthus leaves and grill work (Milan Monday 22)

Yeah! Milan Monday! And life is getting enough back to normal to allow me to celebrate it with you!...More......

Here's a detail of the gorgeous fence in front of the Villa Romeo-Faccanoni, which I spent eons cleaning up before turning it into this StitchPainter design, then a BMP file for your personal, non-commercial fun!
