for the Holidays...
and I finished it into a sawdust-filled pinkeep with my own
hand-dyed rickrack stitched around the finished edge...
it was stitched onto 28ct linen that I stained with walnut dye
and it measures approx. 7" x 5 1/2"
(I don't have the stitch count yet but will post that soon)
the motifs include a holly-filled basket, snowflakes, a berried vine and the words Merry Yule.
The one below is called
"Feeding the Reindeer"
I had a great time stitching this one...it is so very simple and plain...
I also played a little bit with the finish, as you can see I added brown repro fabric to the bottom of the finished piece as it was too small for the frame I painted...
I LOVE how it looks!
it depicts a sweet Angel feeding a reindeer, a dove, the date 1856 & a partial alphabet.
I gladly combine shipping so you can order both for $21.50
the frame is $25.00 + $5.00 priority shipping.
