#RLCMoments: Al, Coronado Villa

I became interested in needlepoint in 1988. I was housebound and recovering from heart bypass surgery. I started doing it just to have something to do. The first one was called “The Turkey and the Mountain”. The next was called “The Divine Shepherd”, which was Christ as a young boy shepherding.

The stich is called continental stitch. It makes the picture look smooth and real. “The Last Supper” took me 200 hours to finish. I chose it because it appealed to me as a challenge. You have to really focus when you do needlepoint. If you don’t, you could have a lousy picture.

Al's needlepoint art is on display in "The Bank" room at Coronado Villa.
