Thank you Fiona Jude!
There are a new series of Country Threads Tapestries from the Fiona Jude Design Studio. Shearing the Rams by Tom Roberts always was a popular design, we have it in cross stitch but we haven’t been able to get it on canvas for years. Another of Tom Roberts masterpieces, Bailed Up is now available again from Fiona as is Frederick McCubbin’s Down on His Luck. All of these iconic images have been reproduced in fabulous cross stitch by Country Threads. Now Fiona Jude has turned her considerable design talent to bringing these to the dedicated needlepoint stitcher. They arrived in store this week and have a soft palette.
There is also a striking image of the Buddha, who has a recurring appearance amongst Country Threads recent designs. The Chinese symbols to the right of the design are for Happiness, Longevity, Luck and Prosperity. I don’t know anyone who would say no to a little more of any of those.
All designs are $88.00 and are available online or in store with optional thread packs.
