This is a detail from a crewelwork picture with yarns on plain-woven natural linen from the Decorative Folk Art collection of the Winterthur Museum. The picture is thought to be a fragment of a petticoat hem that was worked between 1740 and 1760 in New England. This picture is one out of four fragments that make up a continuous flat landscape scene with trees, some bearing fruit, flowers, and animals on hilly ground. Display in a frame on its own or in conjunction with the others in the series, or make into beautiful cushions. Beautiful vibrant colors and lovely composition. Measures 12″ x 16.5″ on 14, 16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas. Please indicate your mesh preference in the notes section at checkout. Kit includes a very detailed stitch guide created by Sandra Arthur, the canvas in your choice of mesh, and all the silk threads needed to complete.
