Farm Animal Pull Toy

I had fun stitching the pull toy in my new Victoriana line, one of 6 toys in the collection. I will finish it as an ornament with gold trim, but it could also be an inset in a Christmas cracker. It measures approx. 6 1/4 ” by 3″ on 18 count canvas.

I filled my needle with Burmilana and Wisper to French knot the sheep. He is really fat! The rooster has Ribbon Floss Shimmer Blend for feathers and tail, and the horse’s white and gray coat and mane is stitched with Vineyard Silk.

The gold border at the top, a common element on all the Victoriana canvases, is long stitches of Kreinik 1/16″ ribbons. It is reminiscent of the scallop decoration on Victoria and Albert’s wedding cake.

Happy stitching ! Joan
