This week Albert sent me this photograph. He has been buying his threads online from us for the last 6 months since discovering our website. This is worked in needlepoint on canvas with DMC Tapestry wool and some detailing with DMC Stranded Cotton.
He told me when he first became our customer, he thought he had finished these stockings as all his grandchildren were growing up. However he has pulled out the canvas, needle and threads again for his great grandchildren. We don’t discuss age at Victoria House Needlecraft but the fact that Albert is stitching for his great grandchildren suggests you are definately never to old to learn about computers, … Mum I am talking to you!
When I asked Albert for a little more information about the piece: Is it an original design? Where does he get his ideas? He told me
“I have a base stocking that I have used from the beginning. In the beginning I used designs from pattern books.
Then I ran out of designs so put together Christmas motives from wherever to make each stocking of which this is the 21st.”"
Thanks for sharing Albert, nice work. I really like the crisp colours in this design.
