I was photo-copying a picture of a tudor pillow that I thought was
needlepoint.  It had pomegranates, tudor roses, and barley sugar twists in
it, and I liked some of the motifs.  Got it large enough and discovered
counted cross stitch, with quite a few colors.   Since then, it is kind of a
game to guess which is which.  

Sometimes it is too easy.  If everything looks as though it is falling over,
like the Bradford table carpet, it has to be tent stitch.

Making a list, checking it twice...and hoping to get through Pennsic SANE!
