Needlepoint Pears


Pears like needlepoint.

Introducing Angry Pear needlepoint canvases and kits!

This winter, I collaborated with Barbara Russell of Barbara Russell Needlepoint Designs to convert some of my pear drawings into needlepoint painted canvases. She picked six of my favorite illustrations. So exciting! Here are the ones she picked:


Pears like Wine:

Pear Salon Disaster:

Pears go well with Cheese:

The canvases have turned out beautifully! You can purchase the canvases (and kits with threads) from Barbara Russell’s website under the pear people collection. I used to do a lot of needlepoint when I was younger, and I can’t wait to try these!

I’ll post pictures after I’ve finished one of these. I just can’t figure out which one I want. Probably Pampeared.

  1. How exciting! I love all of those! I’ve never done needlepoint, though.

    • Thanks! It’s really quite fun, and since you enjoy quilting, I think you’d like it! It’s probably less involved than quilting actually– the kind of thing you can do while watching TV (once you get the hang of it).

  2. They look awesome!

  3. These are so cute! (:

  4. How fabulous!!! What a creative venture! Excellent. I feel inspired! 🙂 Really inspired. 🙂 I love the Pear Salon Disaster. Who can’t relate to that?! 😉
