Needle Weaving

My mother loves texture, and she has collected interesting textures all my life:  driftwood, rusty iron, fancy yarns, photos of things she's seen on her travels, among other things.  She is especially fascinated by weaving, and I think I've inherited her fascination.  But unlike her, I am not really interested in getting a loom and working large scale.... I prefer the intimacy of a small piece.  Needle weaving (the uptown word for the darning stitch) is a technique I think I can use.
