Lovely!
I do like the artifice of using grey thread in the spectacles, giving the illusion of glass........
Glued to a board then chamfer cut ?

rod222. Thanks for the comment. My wife corrected me and said this is cross stitch needlepoint. NOT crocheted.

Thanks for "up righting" the original picture too. I fought trying to get it that way and gave up.

Both "stamps" are mounted behind a professionally bevel-cut mat. Here are some close ups. The Mother "stamp" was started with a light blue background. And the needlepoint was added. That's why the "stamp" is so large with no defined edge like the Father "stamp".

Gierhead, with respect,
can you again, obtain counsel from your wife please?
I get Needlepoint and Cross stitch, however I understand them as two different disciplines.
Your lovely examples do not seem to be "cross stitched"
I need confirmation, or where I may be misunderstanding.
I am assuming to see an X as two passes of the needle to make one square?

A common thread, pun intended, Needlework and stamp collecting....

In the recent past, there has been a rising popularity in crafts done with a cloth, thread and a needle. These crafts have evolved with time.
Embroidery is deemed therapeutic and is said to be good for the brain, protecting the brain from pre-mature aging, while also helping ease disorders such as anxiety and depression. It also helps express and improve creativity

You are correct. They are different. My wife looked up the specific definitions of cross stitch and needlepoint just now. The artwork I posted is cross stitch. A form of embroidery. In some cases the lines made are not "crossed" with another thread.

Thanks for the clarification. My wife and I are always willing to learn correctly what we think we know.
