Needlepoint Gallery

I’d been working on them piecemeal for a while, but I had the chance to really sit down and work on some needlepoint pieces while I was at Somerville Open Studios on May 3rd and 4th. Here’s a gallery of what I’ve been working on.

Analemma-SolsticesThis is the analemma, the shape that the sun traces out during the course of the year. I have marked the dates of the solstices at the minimum and maximum points.

AustralasiaAustralasia, although I need to fill in the main continental mass. The color of floss I selected is the average color of the continent.

CGA-PaletteAs referenced before, this is the CGA Color Palette, used by the Computer Graphics Array video system in the mid 80s.

Earth-Moon-SystemA favorite subject of mine, this is the Earth-Moon system, to scale.

Mississippi-Missouri River

Also referenced before, the Mississippi-Missouri river basin, in negative format. The mouth at the Gulf of Mexico is to the left.

North-America

Another geographic subject, the North American continent, also done using floss of the average color of the landmass. This floss is actually a little too green, but I couldn’t find a color quite right.

Yangtze-River

And, finally, the Yangtze river valley, done to the same scale as the Mississippi-Missouri, but in positive format, using indigo floss.
