Paula by Vicky Sawyer

NB: We pull threads based on an estimate of thread use from over 30 years of experience. If your kit or canvas order contains threads, and for whatever reason, you find you need more, there may be an additional charge.

A whimsical needlepoint bird design by Vicky Sawyer for Melissa Shirley.

  • Is it a goldfinch? Could be! Paula certainly bears impressive headwear. This colorful and playful needlepoint bird design is hand-painted on 13 mesh mono canvas.
  • The design measures 6" x 7".
  • You can purchase the canvas alone or with threads.  If you choose cotton we provide DMC cotton floss; for wool we use a blended wool called Essentials, 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 our favorite thread mix for this design.
  • If you wish to hold this canvas on stretcher bars while you stitch it we recommend a pair of 11" and a pair of 12" bars, plus some thumbtacks.
  • If you're in a hurry, check with us for availability.
  • Happy stitching!
