The Display Challenge

Needlepoint For Fun Shows Off

Needlepoint for Fun just posted this image of a stitched piece they found at a local store and display in their powder room.  I grabbed the photo for those who can't view Facebook images.

The shop challenges folks to post photos of their needlework on display, particularly if it is in an unusual or striking place.  Here is my entry—

Petei's Flying Angel

This is my Petei "Flying Angel" shown in my laundry room.  It's the only place in the house dark enough to take a photo of the lights that surround the angel.

Lights on!
Finishing by West Coast Finishing.  They did a superb job.  Ok, your turn.  Post your own unusual or striking setting for your needlepoint on Facebook, your blog, or send me a photo and I'll post it here.
