13 - Primitive Needle By the Light of the Moon

Primitive Needle By the Light of the Moon
This was stitched as part of a FB tribute SAL to the designer Lisa Roswell who passed away in 2011.
I used various DMC and a Stef Francis variegated for the border.
The owl, basket and mushroom are all tweeded rather than variegated.
Stitched on 28 count Burnt Orange Jazlyn evenweave.
The frame is a plain raw pine coloured with black marker pen.
