Pears By Melissa Shirley


A stunning, still life bowl of pears needlepoint design.

  • The bowl of pears hand-painted needlepoint design beautifully captures all the whimsy of this kitchen scene - mouse included!  It is offered by the design house of Melissa Shirley.
  • The design measures 17" x 11.5".
  • You can purchase the canvas alone or with threads.  If you choose cotton we provide DMC cotton floss; for wool we use Vineyard Merino; for silk we use Planet Earth silk, both of which are single-stranded and easy to use.
  • If you choose our favorites we will add Glisten by Rainbow Gallery and Essentials to the thread mix we will select especially for this design.
  • If you wish to hold this canvas on stretcher bars while you stitch it we recommend a pair of 16" and a pair of 22" bars and some thumbtacks.
