Baby Texan

This is a framed Texas-themed Raymond Crawford (of “where imagination lives” fame, which kind of reminds me of another tag line 😉 ) design that my good friend Marianne brought yesterday to Needlepoint Land.

new texan 3Isn’t it lovely?

Per Marianne, she used krenik for the navy blue lettering, and the background is a darning pattern from a book called Suzy’s Darn Stitches.

The French knots are “sloppy French knots,” and she also used basketweave.

Most of the threads were already in her stash.

I think Marianne is going to send me some other pics of the piece. When I get them, I’ll update the post — as these pics were taken with my smartphone.

In the meantime, thanks Marianne for bringing your lovely canvas to the store!
