Needlepoint Alphabet Blocks
Recently, my friend Mary sent Oona these wonderful needlepoint alphabet blocks. They are done on a plastic canvas so they have some durability. A friend of hers had a set of these blocks made by their grandmother, and Mary used the vintage blocks to make Oona's set. I love them so I had to share, and Oona is pretty wild about them too.
I love the lady bug and scissors and owl and... all of them!
I think I'd like to try needlepoint some day. I remember doing a plastic canvas butterfly pattern with my Grandma Atwood when I was a girl... I wonder what ever happened to that.
P.S. The purple sweater Oona is wearing was also a handmade gift that Jake's Aunt Vicki made! Don't we have some pretty awesome family and friends? They certainly spoil us in all sorts of ways!
