The gift packaged needlepoint kits and canvases contain premium quality materials - including:
The Country Woman is an adaptation from a seventeenth century Spanish tin-glazed tile painting - Talavera de la Reina.
The Country Woman is dressed in a historical peasant country attire - typical of the seventeenth century.
Nineteen colors were dyed to stitch this needlepoint country scene. The Hunting design - another within this collection - was stitched four times before the final colors were decided - and flowing well. The velveteen or corduroy skirt has six shades of maize tones - shaded with two variations of sage green. For the vest - a forest green shading progresses into a chartreuse then yellow - completely accurate to the original tile colors.
A discreet dab of tangerine is used to portray an autumn vegetation - repeated in the ground cover and falling feed. Four blues were carefully dyed to match the original tile colors - adding dimension to the flat painted strokes. The background is a very slight peach toned white - chosen to simulate the tin-glazed earthenware.
