A slight deviation from my workdesk this Wednesday - this is another craft project that I'm working on. It's a William Morris style needlepoint (actually cross stitch) acanthus rug, designed by Beth Russell. I've included a rear view as well, as it's easier to see from this how much of it I've done (or not as the case may be...). I got this as a complete kit, I also have a book of Beth Russell's gorgeous needlepoint designs, which includes the acanthus rug.
I figured this would be a ten year project when I started out. That was eight years ago, so as you can see I need to get a bit of a move on! I hadn't done anything on it for at least a couple of years, but I got the rug out again a few weeks ago and have got back into the habit of working on it at one or two evenings a week, whilst watching TV.
If you're curious about WOYWW, more details of what it is about and how to join in are on Julia's Stamping Ground blog.
