SJ Designs' Victorian Dogs for Sale

SJ Designs is featuring a lovely Victorian era needlepoint of two dogs on their sale site. The stitching is interesting because of the background stitch chosen and the interesting random stitching on the basket.

Susan thinks this dates to between 1850-70.  It's a great lesson on how needlepoint has and has not changed.
