This is a Pinsations adaptation of a design from a piece of bronze wall art with stitches I selected.  The pin can be removed, worn, & replaced. I placed a photo of this on the front of my Christmas cards for 2006.  I had to tell people it was stitched by me – they didn’t realize that!  Then, I framed it & gave the piece to my sister, Anita, as a Christmas gift in 2007.

This was my inspiration – a piece of bronze wall art clipped from a catalogue.

My sketch:

I used gold Kreinik & mostly straight stitches but also Lazy Daisy stitch for flowers & a Vandyke stitch for the vase (both stitches are from Stitch Sampler by Lucinda Ganderton).
