top prev next bottom Hobby Pictures of Jeannette

Jeannette's neeldepoint hobby takes place throughout the whole year, i.e. on a lounger in the warm sun or on her recliner in front of the fireplace. She does it one cross-stitch at a time, but hundreds of hours later beautiful pieces are the results. Most of her works are "counted cross-stitch", i.e. the pattern is printed on paper with a specific symbol for each colour and she has to make the cross stitches on a clean canvas. She first has to find the center off the canvas and then start counting from that reference point. It would drive Pieter absolutely nuts (which he is already according to others), but Jeannette finds it relaxing. Here are some examples of her handy work. All sizes are expressed in width X height.

Making pictures of framed needlepoint works is a challenge to say the least. The "pixels" of the cross-stitches and the pixels of the digital camera can create strange superimposed patterns. Then there is glare and reflections. Blame it on me if Jeannette's needlepoint works don't look perfect, because in reality they are perfect.
