Here's the finished product - sitting at the framer's. This one took forever - but I am looking forward to hanging it next to the dining room table at Thanksgiving. For February I took up a needlepoint piece - and questioning why I ever chose needlepoint over cross-stitch. I have learned that I much prefer cross-stitch!
Now, about those needlepoint pictures on my WIP shelf ....

This is lovely! Well worth the time invested! 😄 Needlepoint? WsIP take up a lot of space...more like UFOs.😃

... to trash or not to trash (the needlepoint WIPs) ... THAT is the question! (And THINK of all the room it would make on my WIP shelf if I should trash them!) :)

This is really great! I love the touches of blue. They make it so much bettter! I just learned that my love of Fall colors is singular in our family! I just assumed that everyone likes them, but I find that some like other seasons. I began liking every Fall as a school year (new pencils and pens, new teacher, new lunch box, new pals...I loved school). I liked the leaf colors, too...grew up in Ohio, which had all 4 seasons. Even here in California, I can find some trees to ooh and aah over. They are not native, but I am always glad to see them!

Love how your wreath turned out! You’re going to get a lot of compliments when friends/family see this on the wall during the Thanksgiving holidays. Beautiful job!! 😃

Love it! I feel your pain... I’ve been working on a needlepoint piece for about a week, I need to have it done before we go to Nantucket (not til July,) so I can take it back to be finished. On the bright side, I can watch the Olympics, and needlepoint, don’t need to count, recount, then count again.

It turned out beautifully! I too love the greenish/blue hues worked throughout the wreath. Reminds me of eucalyptus. Well done!

Love it!! I have been having trouble finding Thanksgiving designs because all my magazines come from the UK and they do not have that holiday. I found a lot here on Everything so I might have to try one of those.

That is stunning! Truly something to be "thankful" for during Thanksgiving!! I am sure your family and friends will love it as well, but the most important person to please is YOU! I understand about the needlepoint over Xstitch - I too have a WIP for needlepoint that has been sitting in a drawer for a couple of years now. Much prefer cross-stitching.
