Expensive—Or Is It? UPDATED

Needlepoint is an expensive hobby, but considering the time spent, Enriched Stitch shows that a piece will entertain one on a per hour basis for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

UPDATE:  Make sure you read Pat's comment.  It's a very clever idea!

I keep track of my time, the threads, the canvas and the framing too. I write it all on the back with the name of the designer and date it. That way whoever receives it has the knowledge and it is not a garage sale item! LOL

Clever! I might have to do that with my next project. It's a gift for the future as well. All the museums in the world are saluting you, Pat!

I don't know about the salute, but this way they all know thosevalues of the piece along with the actual gift itself.

True. And I think that's important these days when many people have no clue about the number of hours or the expense involved in a handmade present.
