Starry Night

I'm not much of a person who likes to just sit and watch TV.  I'm definitely the type of person who has to do something while I'm watching TV.  When I don't have a quilt binding to sew down, I'm usually doing some needlepoint.

In 2008, I posted here about my progress on needlepoint.  I've copied two of the pictures below showing what I had been working on.  In mid-2008 I finished the trees....

And started on the next needlepoint.  This is the very first picture I shared of the design.

Its pretty amazing that that tiny little square ended up as the following (I'm not sure why it uploaded the picture sideways):

We were able to get the picture framed at a local place in Saratoga, which was really awesome.  It turned out better than we had hoped and looks amazingly like the painting.  It only took me 3 years to finish it. ;-)
