Flickr Finds: Needlepointed Lampshade

The other day, Rebecca noted that she'd been seeing a lot of embroidered designs. We must've been on the same wavelength because just that morning, we'd stopped when we noticed this needlepointed work during our daily flickr surf (and we apologize for the poor quality of the photo)...

It also caught our attention because, unlike the expected pillows and cushions, this Flickr member had applied her skills to a lampshade. You can attempt to embroider directly on a lampshade (a slightly awkward proposition), or you can have a piece of embroidered fabric, whether found in an antique store or made by yourself or a friend or relative, turned into a lampshade at your local fine lamp store.
