I'm joining Laurie's Valentine Party with these needlepoint Lovebirds. I am a beginner needlepointer. (Is needlepointer a word? Needlepointist? One who attempts to needlepoint.) I recently finished this simple design that I started years ago, a canvas of two little lovebirds sitting in a berry tree and plan to turn it into a pillow soon. I like to think that the two birds symbolize Mr. Garden and me.
One of my childhood friends is an artist who designs and paints needlepoint canvases for Jean Smith Designs. Those of you who needlepoint will recognize this design house. Two things I associate most with Valentines day are hearts and flowers and so I made a valentine mosaic with some of their amazing and beautiful heart and flower designs. (Some of the pics are a little fuzzy, but you can get a better look by clicking on the link to their web page.)
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
