Product Description
BLACKBIRD NEEDLECASE
 
Stylized pastoral and hunting scenes appeared frequently throughout the decorative arts in the 17th and early 18th centuries. Embroidered examples can be found in samplers, tapestries and surface embroidery.
Hunters chase game across rolling hills, which are dotted with naïve flowering plants and trees, birds and insects. Figures quite often appear in the landscape as well as flocks of sheep, and fishermen and women perch on the edge of ponds teaming with fish.
The needlecase features typical flowers and foliage and a pair of nesting blackbirds in an oak tree. A pair of dogs chase butterflies and bees across the hillocks filled with a variety of counted, laid and surface stitches.
The needlecase is worked with a combination of silk and cotton Painters Threads and Gumnut silk Buds and is suitable for experienced stitchers.
The enlarged cushion version uses Gumnut Blossoms 2 ply wools combined with DMC Colour Variations and plain Perle #5 cottons, Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colourworks Perle #5 cottons.
Comprehensive embroidery, stitching and making up instructions are provided for a small charge by the tutor.
