A Collaboration

I'm very happy to finally get to show you something I've been working on for months.
I'll be doing a series of reproduction candle board finishes.  3 in all.  I drew my inspiration for this series from antique butter molds.
This is a collaboration with Kelmscott Designs, who is distributing the candle boards, which can
be ordered from your favorite Needlework shop.

Here is the first design in the series.

"Leaping Stag" Candle Board

The design is stitched on 32ct Vtg. Exemplar by Lakeside Linens and trimmed with
Faded Colonial Blue pom pom by Dames of the Needle.  The floss is from The Gentle Art in the colors,  Apple Cider, Brethren Blue, Mountain Mist and Wood Trail.
The Candle Board is 5/5" across, the handle is 2.75" height and the full height is 8.25"

This is now available from my distributor and will also be in my Etsy Shop.

I have a few more designs close to releasing.  I can't wait to show you them very soon!
Smiles, ~Nan

I love it, Nan. I love homemade butter and have been molding cookies for several years now. Thank you for designing it in 32 count. :-)
