Needlepoint in Waiting

I was digging through some of my craft storage boxes a few weeks ago and happened upon this not-so-little treasure.

IMG_20150608_113251_clr_smThis is the nearly-finished needlepoint project I worked from a pattern in the book Icelandic Patterns in NeedlepointYears ago.  Seriously – at least eight years.  It’s been patiently waiting in that box ever since.  All for want of backing and hanging loops.

Geez!  Get moving on that!  All of those hours of work deserve to be out on display.

IMG_20150608_113232_clr_smI was and still am very happy with how it turned out.  The only questions at this point are:

  1. What material to use as a backing fabric?
  2. Whether to hang it horizontally or vertically?

I’m thinking this will be a lovely addition to the blue artwork in my bright front living room.  Maybe over the small antique secretary desk that I inherited from my grandmother…
