I started teaching an art class at a local shelter a few months ago. The ladies that live there are a blast to craft with, but when I suggested we spend the afternoon knitting I had virtually no takers. I rummaged through the craft closet and found several hoops for needlepoint and surprise surprise, everyone was in! It's been several years since I took a fibre art class in college in which I did a lot of needlepoint.
Once I got home, feeling completely relaxed from the mellow conversation that was had as we all sat in a circle and stitched flowers and "ain't nobody got time of' that" onto vintage handkerchiefs, I noticed this talented lady online.
