Portraits of the Wild Life

Funk & Weber, Portraits of the Wild Life by Joyce

Joyce's Alaska memories.

Check out the story behind Joyce’s stitchery. She purchased three of the Portraits of the Wild Life kits–moose, grizzly, caribou–from The Status Thimble in Burlingame, CA.

My husband and I visited Alaska last summer and I wanted some memories of the wildlife we saw.

I changed the background color of the caribou (was fuschia background in the kit) to match the moose background. I had to really hunt to find a color green that coordinated with both the bright green in the grizzly piece and the much deeper and darker green in the caribou and moose pieces.

I think the green works perfectly! I know how hard it can be to find just the right one. This is a wonderful piece of membroidery. I hope it inspires memories of Alaska for years to come.
