A perfect gift for the new baby, this is a hand-painted MCM petipoint (18 gauge) mono canvas (little lady mouse holding a flower) that is sweet and delicate and would make the perfect top to a pillow or would be beautiful as a framed piece. There is enough space in the selvage (over an inch) to put the baby’s name and date of birth (see photos). There is more than ample Paternayan Persian wool yarn to complete the project. It is recommended that this 18- gauge mono canvas should be done with one strand per stitch. In the ’70’s, at the beginning of the needlepoint craze, Paternayan was literally sold by the strand. The shopkeeper would pull each 5-foot piece of wool yarn and then bundle in colors, as I have done here. The yarns are in pristine condition, with true original colors, no odor and have been carefully packaged while in storage. Included are two new size 24 needlepoint needles from Permin of Copenhagen. I live in a non-smoking home.
