I had no idea what to call this wonderful new 2015 Laurel Burch needlepoint canvas. My best idea was *Dog and Cat Halo* but that did not seem right so I went back to the source, this year's Laurel Burch catalog.
They named it *Once Upon A Blue Moon* and there it was, in the upper left corner, the blue moon. Who am I to argue with perfection?
This colorful, hand painted canvas features 3 cats and 2 dogs (I think) leaping over the sun, under the moon.
The design area measures 11 x 13.5 inches. the entire canvas measures 16.6 X 18 inches. it is 18 mesh. The perimeters of the design could be stitched a little bigger or a little smaller. There is no fixed border.
This canvas does not include any threads or yarn.
Most NewNeedlepoint.com canvases have carefully taped edges. I use Professional Artists Tape. It sticks very well.
Each canvas includes a correct size tapestry needle.
Remember to stitch 1-2 additional rows all around the completed canvas for finishing.
Large needlepoint canvases will be rolled and sent in a mailing tube, smaller canvases will be sent flat in a padded envelope.
This Canvas is also available as a complete Needlepoint Kit
