Hey ya’ll! Some of you early followers of The Curious Cowgirl might recall my post about my love of needlepoint. Well, the number of readers who commented on that post was so FUN for me! And, I learned that those who needlepoint are a very enthusiastic group who love to get together to stitch with a healthy side of chit chat, share tips on fancy stitches and beautiful threads….and who love to learn! And one of the BEST teachers around??? The delightful Patricia Sone!
Y’all…the Curious Cowgirl has a hard time sitting still. Anybody else? When I have down time, I still putter around, finding projects, looking for this and that to keep myself busy. Even while watching TV, I almost always have something in my lap to work on. My very wise Mom knows me well, and in my early 20’s, I was facing a situation where I would be sitting for a few days, not in my own home with easy access to things that would keep me busy….so in the interest of helping me avoid a quasi-International incident, she suggested I learn how to needlepoint. I could keep busy, but also continue to make polite conversation. And eye-contact. And not lose my mind. And….Hello my name is Mary, The Curious Cowgirl…I became addicted to needlepoint!
