Revisiting Wooly Dreams UPDATED

I imagine a lot of needlepointers aren't familiar with the lovely whimsical designs from Lula Chang of Wooly Dreams..   It's a shame that they aren't more widely available!   Look at these—

Annie and Company has some pieces in stock…

…and so does Needle Works.  I also see pieces on eBay a lot. They are worth looking for as they are lovingly painted little jewels.

But this morning I want you to visit Lula Chang's website and read about her designs, and how she got into needlepoint design.  Start here and read one page a morning, then click on the arrow at the bottom to go to the next.  Lula is great company over your favorite beverage!

UPDATE:  I have been told that Lula Chang died in 2014.  What a loss!  My condolences to her family and friends.  Her needlepoint designs are charming. I will have to pick up one while I still can to stitch in her honor.

  1. Jane, I could not tell from your posting if you were aware that Lula Chang passed away several years ago, at the end of 2014. She was a dear and wonderful friend of mine for many years, and an incredibly talented, creative and gifted individual. I know that she would have absolutely loved what you wrote about her and her work, and also the fact that you made people aware of her website where her designs can be seen and the shops where some of her pieces are still available.

  2. I did not know Lula Chang had died. Thanks for telling me. It's a great loss. Each of her designs is a tiny jewel.

  3. I love her stuff but do not own any of her canvases. I did do one of her designs as surface work - it is amazing! Maybe I will get one of her canvases now before they disappear.
