**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I punched my design, called "Cardinal Morning", using soft Valdani and DMC thread colors and attached it to an old, chippy painted finial. It has been lightly stuffed with polyfil and backed using a piece of 100% wool the same color as the tied strip at the top of the finial. The entire piece measures roughly 8 3/4"H x 3 3/4"W. I am kindly asking 69.00, plus postage for this handmade item. I gladly accept paypal or cashier's checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks so much for visiting PHM today!

The background movement in the thread was achieved by using a variegated Valdani thread to complete the area. This piece is backed with a lovely brown 100% wool. It measures roughly 5"H x 4 1/2" W. I have added a thread hanger that can be easily removed if desired. I am kindly asking 65.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. I gladly accept paypal and cashier's checks.
