Note from the designer - "The design of this piece was inspired by fine examples of early eighteenth century American and English needlework pictures. A picture like this would have been stitched as a painting, with great attention to detail, shading, color, and composition." The design features and early American hunter on horseback with hounds giving chase to rabbits. Rated for all skill levels.
The needlework can be stitched in cross stitch over one or two threads of linen. Over two threads, on 35 count linen, as the model has been stitched, it will measure approximately 17-1/4? x 13-1/4?. Stitched in cross stitch over one thread of linen, it will measure approximately 8-1/2? x 6-1/2? on 35 count linen.
