Item/Description: Vintage Precious Moments “Love Is Kind” completed, needlepoint cross stitch picture, matted and wood-framed under glass, ready for hanging.
The charming imagery depicted is that of a young boy and girl. The little girl is seated on a swing. Her devoted boyfriend is behind her, pushing her on the swing. A couple of tiny, delicate little butterflies flutter nearby. The romantic sentiment “Love Is Kind” sweetly encapsulates the delightful scenario.
The colors utilized are a soothingly lovely array of pastel hues, just perfect for enhancing a child’s room or baby nursery (and if the “child” is the grown-up YOU, so much the better). ;~)
This darling vintage needlepoint wall hanging was made from a counted cross stitch kit.
