A Shepherd's Care II

Three sweet smalls are inspired by the cheerful and colorful motifs in the Christy Barron reproduction. The drum highlights that band of carnation motifs plus a quirky bird; the needle book makes use of the multi-colored medallions she stitched; and the berry shows off one of the pretty basket motifs from the original sampler. The models are stitched with the same fabric and floss as the reproduction, but you can use any warm neutral fabric for a great background.
