    We love Lee's Needle Art for their needlepoint painted canvases and the leather goods to finish the projects. No need to send your project out to a finisher, and wait possibly months for the finished project, when you can do the finishing easily and quickly.

    Instructions:
    BACKGROUND: Kreinik Fine #8 Braid 033L Royal Blast in basketweave stitch
