Polly Wolly Doodle


Here is my Polly Wolly Doodle by Lori Markovic, I stitched this on 36ct white linen 1/1, so as you can imagine its quite tiny.
I hadn't any Neeldpoint Silk apart from Purple Iris, which the words are done with. So I substituted with Gloriana silk thread. I used Grecian Gold, Charcoal, Rosewood and GrannySmith Green, and the blue is Au Ver a Soi Navy. I've framed it in a tiny leather frame that I had in my frame box. This was my stitching project whilst we were on holiday. It was a lovely project to stitch and I enjoyed every minute of it. It measures approx 7cm x 6cm, I did think to make it into an ornie or a needlebook or even a pinkeeper, but because I found the frame I felt it looked at home in there.
