Edward Gorey's Needlepoint

Guess what--Anna discovered that Edward Gorey took up needlepoint when he retired to Cape Cod!  The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust posted three examples of his original pieces on their Instagram page, all framed and all roughly 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches.

Apparently there are 18 needlepointed pieces in total, all original works done while he watched tv.  These are done in wool yarn on plastic mesh according to the posting.  I checked the Edward Gorey House website to see if I could find more pictures but found nothing.  It is possible if you visit you might spot more.
