Arts & Crafts Wall-Hanging

This is petit-pointed with 2 strands of DMC floss on 32-count Belfast linen evenweave; the design is by Sue Bakker.  I made the rod with a piece of fine dowel finished with linseed oil and beeswax; the finials are filigree beads stuck in with ordinary sewing pins with unusually-shaped heads, then painted gold.  The hanging loops are silk ribbon tacked to the back of the needlework.

This was a fun piece to work!  You really have to keep on your toes with all of those curlicues.  The wall-hanging is meant for the tea-shop-to-be, though the scale is a bit big for 1:12, so I will have to wait until I put it all together to see if it works.
