Needlepoint pillows are another love of mine. Not so much making them, I’m not über crafty, es tut mir weh! I cannot knit or crochet, not even a little, but I do know a few embroidery moves. I think that makes me appreciate vintage handcrafted needlepoint pillows all the more. I know first-hand the time they took: counting and peering at the pattern sheet, getting the right colored floss, poking your fingers, all of that. So I find a special joy when I come across a pillow that has odd or funny subject matter. Imagine my delight upon finding this kitschy wide-eyed girl —very Keane. Someone took a lot of time bringing her into the world, which is great!
