I got these back from the finisher and they are adorable! But the hangers were out of proportion with the dresses and sweaters.
So I went online and asked the Facebook needlepoint group where to go to purchase different black, wire doll hangers. The Country Porch had exactly what I was looking for- a 3" hanger. And look at the difference.
In Midland, I have a housekeeper, which is something I plan to replicate on Houston when I get back. It's been really nice to be able to needlepoint on the weekends and not worry about cleaning beyond just straightening up.
This is what I have accomplished: lots of little pieces but I've loved clearing these out of my stash.
The sweaters are stitched mostly in criss cross Hungarian and all of the thread is vineyard merino.
