Go to the Read Blogs section (I am not sure if you must be logged-in as a user to get there, but it’s deffo there), look under the left-handed column which lists topics you’re interested in, and look for a topic listed as Needlepoint, or add it (if you don’t see it, in the box provided).
I saw a number of sites that I am going to look at, later, but first I’m going out for a while to take a New York canvas I just stitched to the frame shop.
In the meantime, take a look at these two lovely arabesque cross stitch designs.
As mentioned by Alister7, of thebargellist blog fame, these designs are sourced from an extremely interesting book called Palestinian Embroidery Motifs: A Treasury of Stitches 1850-1950, by Margarita Skinner. I found a lovely video about the book on Youtube. You can watch the video here.
