I had a little nut tree nothing would it bear but a silver nutmeg and a golden pear
Stitching friends Challenge for October/November was to stitch a golden pear and I had an idea to create something different from the one I had stitched some years ago from a magazine. I did my trial one using apricot silk fabric with a sheer on top and stitched in autumn colours, I managed this with out my glasses as the placement did not need to be as precise as count thread work. This pear went over to America to Annette of California Stitcher who had decorated her house for Autumn
Happy with they way my idea had turned out I then set about stitching my Golden Pear for the challenge. Fabric is gold tissue fabric with a sheer overlay The leaf is green silk and the stem a piece of dried wisteria branch painted gold. As this was to go to Ann I had the pleasure of taking it to her instead of posting it.
Now I would like to make one for myself!
