Heading Home - A Puzzle by Jeffrey Harris

Words in the grid are oriented both across and down, following one after another; they are clued by rows and columns.  The grid below actually forms a famous needle-point pattern, although as you can see, no needle has actually been provided.  You will find the directions to complete this pattern in the grid itself, exactly where you'd expect them.  When you have completed the puzzle, and followed the directions, what you will get can be unscrambled from
the shaded squares.
