This counted cross stitch picture was done by my husband 17 years ago- time goes so fast!
It is all solid stitching( no blank open areas) and took awhile to do. I have a wood sign that says "quiltmaker" that goes underneath but my little Basset Hound Molly could reach it and kept taking it down to chew on!
The people in the picture are done in a folkart style- similar to Charles Wysoki.
I truly treasure this picture and made sure he initialed and dated it as it may become a family heirloom some day.
I am not the best photographer so the picture turned out a little crooked and the orange spot at the bottom is not on the stitching. I think it was a refelection when I took the photo.
Even though it is not the primitive style I have come to love I can not bear not to display it.
Note- clicking on the photo will enlarge it.
