I was so pleased when I found this canvas among my stock of Laurel Burch designs. Dancing Dogs has been a popular design and I was sure I did not have any of them left. I even removed the listing from my web store.
This hand painted needlepoint design can be looked at 2 ways. Horizontal or vertical. Since it is signed on the bottom of the vertical view, I suppose that is how it is meant to be.
The design area measures 9.5 X 7.5 inches. The entire canvas measures 12.5 X 10.5. it is 18 mesh.
My design area measurement is done leaving 1.5 inch unstitches borders. The dogs could be stitched smaller then that or larger, if you don't mind thinner margins. There is even room for a border, if you like.
Dancing dogs has 11 colors plus metallic gold. They are the wonderful jewel tones colors Laurel Burch studios love to use.
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.
