Apparently I have a thing for needlepoint pears.
Vintage Pears is a Melissa Shirley canvas that I just love. Beverly Churchfield did the stitchguide for it and it is amazing. The stitch selections and thread selections are so much fun they really take the canvas to the next level.
I added pears to my line of handpainted canvases this Summer. We have the large and small sizes to fit in different sizes of Stirling bags. This is the large size and it fits the smaller Stirling tote.
And here’s the small size that fits in the shoulder bag or the accessory bag. The design looks good both horizontal and vertical. Stitch it up and decide on the bag later. One of my smarter moments 🙂
This isn’t a new obsession for pears. Back in the late 90’s (yes, I’ve been around that long) I designed Gilded Pears, a counted work piece. It’s also available as a painted canvas with a stitch guide.
I guess its true, I have a thing for needlepoint pears.
