After you have commented on the person’s post, then you can say something like, “I really love doing needle-work too. I have made a similar piece to yours”, and then use it to link back to your blog post.
But, be sure that you sound sincere when you are commenting, and don’t make them feel like you’re just fishing for traffic. If someone thinks that you are using their blog to get more traffic to yours, they won’t visit your site and your efforts will be wasted.
