Needlepoint has been revived by some very creative crafters and entrepreneurs alike. These days, folks are taking the intricate methods of old and applying them to challenging new pictures.

In the past, my only exposure to the method was at my grandmother's house, where she made scenes depicting Japanese ladies sitting around being beautiful, or bowls of perfect fruit glistening on fabric-covered tables. I was surprised by the allure of a roadkill scene pillow made by a friend and discovered many other modern designs to share.
