I thought maybe punch needle. I bought a cheap punch needle to try and see if I might like it. I got fabric too. Haven't tried it yet. It looks like it just sucks up the thread and may be kind of monotonous. That might be okay when my eyes and memory aren't so good.
While in North Carolina, we went to Chapel Hill Needlepoint. My sister does needlepoint. I looked around and found a little piece thinking, this could be the thing for when I get old, can't see the linen and have no memory. I really like it but, it is pricey. Why I started cross stitch back in the day, because it was cheap....chuckling to myself.
Maybe if I'm lucky, I won't have a problem stitching or maybe I should do what Gladys did.
When I was in high school, I was a bed maker at a nursing home. There was a little old lady, Gladys who worked on the printed cross stitch pillow cases and dresser scarves. She had the kind of glasses that really magnify your eyes. She worked with a darning needle and crochet thread. When she got mad at you, she would poke you with the darning needle. Maybe I'll be like Gladys.
Headed on a road trip to The Stitching Bee today with Katy.
Keep on Stitching
