This was my "secret for Christmas" piece this year. My husband rides motorcycles, yes plural, he has 5! The BMW R1200GS is his current favorite. He likes to do trail riding and camping. He enjoys a nightcap when he is camping. When I saw the flask with needlepoint insert on Chilly Hollow, I had to do it for DH for Christmas. With Jane's help, I was able to locate a vendor and purchase one with blank canvas. Then I found an image of the bike on Google & charted it. It turned out great! I painted the canvas yellow, the color of his bike, and just stitched the bike and his initials in tent stitch with pearl cotton. He was really surprised and pleased.
