Thea tells us "I love Sunflowers! Bright yellows and golds, surrounding the heart of the sunflower where the delicious seeds grow, they are some of my favorite flowers in a Harvest Garden. Stitched with luscious over-dyed silks, ribbons, silk flosses, metallic, and sparkling beads, it is perfectly designed for the student. It is not too big, so you can more effectively learn how to stitch the few lovely specialty stitches like Bullion Knots, Triple Cross Stitches, and Silk Ribbon work; some Drawn Thread; and even a band of Pulled Thread work. Cross Stitched areas at the top and bottom depict a basket of Sunflowers just picked from the garden surrounding the sweet little cottage."
Design size is 4.6" wide x 7.2" high.
The model was stitched on 28 count Cashel linen. There is a thread pack available that includes all of the solid and hand dyed silk thread, metallic thread, beads and embellishments to stitch the design. You will also need 2 balls of DMC Pearl Cotton. Please check the boxes above to have these items added to your order.
