Mistakes need love, too.
This style of needlepoint is Bargello or Florentine, so called after the city in which it was popular in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I love this type of needlework. Unfortunately, this piece is upside down. When I made the tote bag, I placed the needlepoint panel the wrong way. I did not catch my mistake soon enough to correct it. Oh well.
This little bag will just need some extra love. I mean, it’s not really the bag’s fault that I biffed it. I take responsibility for all my creations.
