The Pear Tree

I have been stitching  frantically to get the projects ready for Merimbula.  The pear tree is finished and I have loved stitching it and I am very pleased with the finished results. I will be dashing off to the framers next week so I can have it ready when classes start in February.  However…..I fear it will be too large for many people to attempt so….. I am designing a smaller one without needle lace …. keep watching!  The trunk and the thread painted pear are done……………



Thankyou to the four blog reader who have obviously kept checking in my absence.  It was great to get some messages!

    Was the inspiration the Pear tree in Vermont? I love it and will be stitching one, maybe with a red squirrel and Cardinal.
