Fish wreath

Among the needlepoint designs offered by The Studio are two series of canvases painted on 18mesh canvas  and kitted with persian yarn.  They are individual birds or fish and when finished are ornament size.

 Our fish are stitched in a combination of mosaic stitch, basketweave, and continental.  Notice the separate fin that is stitched, backed, and then attached to the body of the fish in the appropriate location for a fin.

 I apologize for the blurriness of this image.  It's a clown fish--I'll try to get a better photo.

This provides a nice conversation piece without a lot of stitching.
