I stitched this Painted Pony travel round after my daughter and I visited New York. We always try to collect an ornament from each of our destinations. We did buy some ornaments while in New York, but I thought we should have a needlepoint one as well. I bought the canvas at The Needleworks in Austin, Texas. It is a great store with an endless supply of canvases and threads. The stitches and threads were selected by me.
