Girlie things

Pretty sure this Maggie canvas has become a classic in the world of needlepoint.  I can say I think this piece has stopped more people walking by my shop than any other I can remember. For the more conservative girls out there I've contrasted it with the Dede girl.  Click on each title for me info.
Party Girls by Anne Campbell for Maggie & Co

Flower Girl by Dede

Flower Girl by Dede, was $210 now $175
Not a piece you'll see that often, perfect for a doll collector or a young girl's room.  Maybe with a music box as part of the finishing?  Very sweet from a by gone era with attention to detail as seen with the bottom to be stitched too.

Sissy by Leigh
A striking piece to think about for the summer.  Like the canvas above it reflects a very different time period than modern day.  Love the idea of contrast between the smooth hardness of the shell and her suit which probably was wool.  Painted on black and white tweed Zeigart mono-deluxe 18 count.

Ring Pillow by the Sweetheart Tree

Very feminine, very pretty Ring Bearer's Pillow.  Available as a kit, lots of beading and some embellishments.  Threads include cotton floss, Kreinik braid, blending filament and perle 12.
