I was out at yard sales and found three fantastic landscape needle points. They were SCREAMING for embroidered quotes. So I bought them immediately and whispered sweet nothings to them all the way home and then promptly forgot about them for months, maybe even years.
I did eventually work on them. They were clearly vintage. I pried them open, and fought my way through weathered cardboard and glue, and was finally able to embroider on top of the needle point some very touching quotes. Two of these were house-warming gifts for my brother.
And then this one was IMMEDIATELY hung directly above our front door:
Finding these vintage needle points was a big awesome score. I loved re-using these pieces in this way. I bet that if you found something similar there are so many more awesome things you'd be able to do with them!!
