Introducing Tapestry Girl

Thanks to Needlepoint for Fun I've discovered Tapestry Girl.  Her real name is Niki McDonald and she creates huge needlepoint canvases inspired by street graffiti in Australia.

She has a website which is great fun to explore.  Don't miss the video hidden under "B.O.W. 2010."

Hi, Niki! You have a lot of fans online. Have fun exploring the needlepoint we do here in the US of A and joining the community of stitchers who encourage each other.

It's a wonderful world of stitchers and I'm so grateful to connect with as many as I can. I'm always inspired by what other makers are doing, it keeps the motivation at an all time high. Thanks again x

If you "do" Facebook, there are tons of groups of needleponters hanging out there. The eye candy is very inspiring. Here's the group I accidentally set up-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/NeedlepointNation/
Come have fun!
