My brother in-law’s mother’s needlepoint artwork

A few weeks ago, my brother in-law’s family graciously treated us to a Christmas morning country breakfast.

I probably gained several pounds that day but the weight was well worth the joy of eating the delicious meal.

While we ate, my brother in-law’s mother showed us some of the needlepoint artwork she had completed.

I’ve been racking my brain trying to remember the art style she used.  It was an Oriental word — possibly Japanese…

In any case, my Internet search came up blank so far…

I wish I had photographed the needlepoint pictures on Christmas morning — they were analog (as opposed to computerised/digital) three-dimensional images that fascinate my imagination.
