I promise no more posts about needlepoint belts, after I show you what the heck I've been working on. I make these custom belts for the club where my husband works. It all began by charting the logo and club font on graph paper. Then I painted it on the needlepoint canvas and stitched a belt in the signature colors. The model belt is on display in the golf shop and members can order them with or with out a monogram. Last Friday my husband came home and told me that "Mrs. Smith" wanted a belt for her husbands surprise birthday party on July 21. OMG! My little fingers started working on it right away and you will be happy to know that I put the belt in the mail today to have the finishing touches done. Below is the model belt and the belt was stitching for "Mrs. Smith". In five years, I think I have done 21 belts. Many of you have asked where you can purchase a belt to needlepoint; Pins & Needles, M's Canvashouse, and Needlepoint.com are some good places to start (unless you have a local needlepoint shop).
I am happy to tell you that I finally started a Chevron scarf ~~ my sister says I always do things a little late.... After reading some of your posts about your scarves, I realized that most of you were unsure of your color choices. The blogoshere cheered you all on, now I think I need a little encouragement..... Have a great weekend!
