American Country Cross Stitch
Over 40 Delightful Designs Inspired by American Folk ArtBook - 1997
Explore a wealth of wonderful cross-stitch designs -- all inspired by American folk art! A blue and white Amish towel has an embroidered panel of nesting birds, and a traditional tulip and heart design, from a decorated baptismal record, beautifully decorates a book cover. Typical Shaker motifs include the Tree of Life, Harp of Joy, and Flower of Humility. Stitch them onto pictures, teapot holders, and a candle box. A shoe bag, door panel, pillowcase border, and cockerel cushion pay homage to New England sources. Contemporary patterns feature stars, a watermelon, and a leaping hare. These 40 designs make a true American treasury! A Selection of BOMC's Crafters Choice Book Club.
