This design is inspired by frakturs of the late 1700s and early 1800s.
I punched this Honeysuckle Lane original design with Valdani perle cotton threads, using warm colors of rusty orange and peach, then accented with variegated blue, olive, and stone.
Actual needlework area measures about 4" x 5" and is edged with a strip of recycled wool. Wood base measures 4" x 9 1/2".
I painted the wood base, stained it, and then finished it with my own homemade concoction of beeswax paste.
