The Nimble Needle, a shop in New Jersey,had a post last week about Bargello, with great observations and a wonderful project idea.

Bargello Needlepoint is the perfect answer to many needlepoint dilemmas.

Overwhelmed by stash? Use it to make some lovely pieces.

Need a fast gift? Bargello stitches quickly and can be added to finish-it-yourself pieces

Short on cash? Bargello uses blank canvas and only a few threads. Even the most inexpensive threads look great in Bargello.

Just learning needlepoint? Bargello is easy and you’ll get a project done fast.

But I just adore the Bargello frame weight in this post. It uses Lorikeet from Gloriana. It’s a soft, hand-dyed wool in the most glorious colors. The subtle shading (many of the colors come in 3 or 4 shades) are shown to great advantage in the geometric patterns of Bargello.

Make a frame weight like this for yourself — it’s a lovely present from you to you.
