This beautifully completed, cross-stitched picture depicts a cherubic faced young girl carrying a black kitten and a spotted dog. The image, a replica of a Bessie Pease Gutmann drawing titled “Friendly Enemies,” shows the young girl with golden curls wearing a dusty rose dress and a pretty blue ribbon. Hundreds of tiny stitches were neatly sewn onto off white aida cloth and signed “TDR ’91.”

The completed needlework design has been professionally padded and framed. The gold gilded, oval frame is glassless and has pretty raised scrollwork designs around its perimeter. It is backed with brown paper and has wall protectors as well as a saw-tooth hanger. When measuring the outer edges of the 1 inch thick frame, the completed picture is 13.75 inches tall and 10.75 inches wide. The actual embrodiered girl is 9 inches tall and approximately 4.5 inches wide.

The needlework wall hanging is in very good condition with no broken stitches, holes, or apparent stains. At first I thought that there was a stain on the puppy, but closer inspection shows a variation in the thread. (See picture #4.) The frame does have one small dent on the inner bottom, but the paint is still intact and the blemish does not detract from the overall beauty. (See picture #5.)

This darling cross stitch picture would look lovely on a nursery wall or in a young girl’s room.
