We may not think of needlework as a rip-roaring good time, but the craft has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance. We're happy to report, however, that very few artisans are bringing back "Precious Moments" samplers.
Instead, we'd like to shine our task light on those crafters who are pushing the needle (ha.) when it comes to embroidery designs. Out with the angels, and in with a sense of humor. The ten projects below are good for a laugh, a mild chuckle or an eyebrow raise. Regardless, we enjoy the effort.

Okay, so maybe we do have an "eccentric" sense of humor.
