God Bless This Child, Framed Stitchery has been stitched with black embroidery floss. The verse is surrounded by three gold wool stars which has a trail of french knots in gold. Before framing the stitchery was bordered with black and white homespun checkered cotton fabric.
The next step was to antique the stitchery and then dry in the oven. This gave a beautiful aged appearance with some singe markings
The frame has been framed in an upcycled frame, which was painted black and then antiqued for an aged appearance. The back has been covered with brown kraft paper, a saw tooth hanger, next a label. Finally a signature and date.
The frame measures 10 1/2″ x 8 3/8″. God Bless This Child, Framed Stitchery makes a wonderful addition to a primitive early style decorated home. It is one of a kind.
