Harvest Mouse Notecard Pack

£5.00


Send a little bit of stitched beauty with our Harvest Mouse notecards.

The detail of the Quaker Tapestry, and its inspired embroidery designs, reproduces beautifully in our cards.

The illustration of the little Harvest mouse within a summer field with poppies and oxeye daisies, is taken from an original hand-stitched embroidery by Bridget Guest and inspired by the Quaker Tapestry stitches and techniques. The Harvest Mouse is well camouflaged within the ears of wheat but can you also spot the other little creatures on the card? There is a bee, a tiny ladybird, a butterfly and a snail.

Bridget Guest, designer of the Harvest Mouse embroidery, says…“I was inspired to create this design after teaching myself some of the cotton embroidery known as white-on-white ‘Mountmellick’ work. Based around hedgerow flowers and grasses I added a little harvest mouse, with a Quaker Stitch tail, for interest. I wondered what the white work would look like in colour using the Quaker Tapestry techniques… so here it is!”

The Harvest Mouse pack of five notecards measuring 105mm x 148mm (A6) with envelopes, are blank inside for your own message.

This design is also available as a greetings card and embroidery kit.
