Bearded Iris, crewel yarn

Needlepainting: long and short stitch

Tanja Berlin Design: Iris, crewel yarn.

I previously stitched this design in single stranded DMC cotton. When you purchase the Iris kit from Ms. Berlin you can purchase an extra piece of fabric with the Iris design drawn. Knowing bearded Iris are my favorite garden flower, I purchased two of these extra fabrics. I still have one to stitch and plan to wait until spring time to view my Iris as they bloom and select the colors of one to use in my third worked piece of this design.

Finished Design size: 5 inches by 3.5 inches, drawn fabric provided was 11 inches by 12 inches. Design is drawn on southern belle cotton muslin fabric.
