Looking back at needleweaving

I'm taking part in Sharon B's Stitch Explorer Challenge. Find out all about it here. This month's challenge is needle weaving.

I went back over my bits and pieces to find some examples of ways I have used this technique.

It's very good for leaves!

These were from another of Sharon's challenges 'Bags of Fun'.

These were used to 'frame' a piece of canvas work for a box lid. The design is based on red clover.

More needle woven leaves, again combined with canvas work and used as a frame for the insert for a box lid. And the 'trees' were worked on a piece of not so much drawn thread as almost totally destroyed canvas!

Here, on the back of one of my 'flies',in metallic threads. I used thread to make a grid first, covering the silver fabrics, then wove some of the threads together with needle weaving.

Your needle weaving is great! It looks like you don't need to experiment much at all! It is lovely eye candy.
