Found this really neat hand stitched piece at a yard sale over the weekend along with some sewing odds and ends. It was originally mounted in a really hideous green faux marble frame, so I decided to take it all apart and reframe it.
I actually like that the raw edges are showing now, though I probably could have done a better job making sure it was centered- oh well for now!
I wish I knew more about the artist and previous owner. The needle work is so intricate- it must have taken forever.
