Needlepoint Maps

I was flipping through Cookie Magazine while in the check-out line at Whole Foods yesterday and this article about how to easily make needlepoint maps caught my attention. One of their contributing editors, Rory Evans, hangs needlepoint maps that represent everyone in her family. Cookie also provides a great link with full instructions—which are much easier and faster than traditional and somewhat cumbersome needlepoint methods. Also, if you're in to needlepointing already I really love Brooklyn-based AMH Design. They have pre-made stitchable journals ($22) that are perfect for the casual needlepointer— they only take about two hours to complete and would make a wonderful gift.

So super cool! I LOVE your blog! I just started my own design blog at www.urbanfleadesign.com, and linked to your glorious blog. I would be forever indebted to you if you did the same for mine! In the meantime, keep up the great work, and cheers!
