Bird in Bough | Historical Reproduction Sampler | Scarlet Letter

Product Description

Brand: Scarlet Letter

This cross stitch is a prime example of early 19th century American folk needle work. The bird, most likely a kingfisher, was originally done in a mixture of wool and silk threads on homespun linen. Two version of the chart are included: one with a partially drawn freehand split and stem stitch for the bough and leaves; the other is done entirely in counted cross stitch.
