When we were still living in Kansas City I decided I to do a needlepoint picture of our home at 121 W. 61st terr. First I took a photograph of the house to use as reference. Then I took a piece of typing paper and folded it twice to determine the center width and length, and drew a picture of the house the size I wanted for the frame. Next I took a piece of graph paper folded twice to get the center and drew the house on it starting at the center using my drawn picture as my guide. I matched wool yarn colors to the photo colors, determined the center of the needlepoint canvas and started there using a continental stitch. I took it and had it stretched and framed then, but would probably do it myself now. Great fun, and a real Keepsake!
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
