ONL 172 – “A” – The Scottish Lovers Tapestry (Ballgown)

172 - A - whiteWith 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 evening/ball-gown. Lots of special stitches and beads give the brocade-effect to her skirts and bodice – the man is dressed more rustic 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 pictured – it is “over one” for detail and crispness. If you rather only stitch initials and/or dates – an alphabet is provided. You can use the medaillion to insert names etc. Perhaps as a marriage “sampler” or an anniversary piece..


The mere design size is 146 x 186 stitches

There is a close sibling, if not a twin to this design here – it is ONL 172 “B” – with her in a more rustic dress, tartan patterned and a “knit” wrap…. look here to compare:both 172 greyYou can even buy both designs in a BUNDLE with a really nifty savings….
