The Scottish Lovers Tapestry B
With all the movies and books on history, happenings and lovers in Scotland I was inspired to create this tapestry-like, tartan-bordered design. This is the version with the Lady in 18th century rustic Tartan dress with woolen wrap. Lots of special stitches and beads give the dimensional effect to her wrap and woven skirt – the man is dressed in breeches, a tartan throw …
You can choose between a “young” and “old” face for him ( with beard or without)
Both stand aside a Rowan tree, in front of the stones of Craig na Dun…..which are only slightly visible through the foggy air.
If you choose to stitch the wording you can leave out one set of thistles in the bottom frame – it is “over one” for detail and crispness. If you rather only stitch initials and/or dates – an alphabet is provided. This design does not include the medallion in the “sky” as it is pictured in the “A” version!
The mere design size is 146 x 186 stitches
