Holiday Fruits

Well, not necessarily holiday fruits, but fruits non-the-less and fruits to be given as a holiday gift. So, in a round-about way, I guess they really are holiday fruits.

I designed a series of fruitful canvases, Pears, Apples and Watermelons that can fit in various Stirling leather goods.  Some are 8 x8 and some are 4 x 8.

For as much as I would like to say that I have stitched models of everything I design, it doesn't always happen.  But sometimes, friends stitch my canvases as surprise gifts for their mothers and I get to show off their talent too!!!!
Here's the 8 x 8 pear canvas stitched by Pamela and finished on the front of a gorgeous tote!

Her mom is going to love it!!! The pears are beautifully stitched in a variety of threads and stitches and of course beads!

No peaking under the tree or you'll spoil the surprise.

Oh I love the pears on the tote! Really, I must get some finishing done this year...I have several stitched canvas' but they are not 'finished'. That is a wonderful idea; now I need to be on the look out for some cute tote bags to embellish!

This is beautiful! Now I need that canvas, Ruth! And does the pretty tote bag come in other polka dot colors...like lime green?
