A commission for the so very sweet Frida and Rae, I can say that as I got to meet the little poppets and they were dreamy!!
I suggested a Painted Bunting, not only for his bright cheery colours, but Painted Buntings remind me of the rich colours of Frida Kahlo's art and Mexico. The sun is adapted from my Nice Sun pattern, with added applique banner detail to tie in with the canvas. The cross stitch is stretched and stitched to fit a standard 8 x10 frame with a keepsake envelope back.
I've been working on a different style banner for another name commission, in running stitch.
Happy sunshine to you!
