Solar Power Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvas

Solar Power Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvas

With the end of summer on the horizon, some of us sun worshippers are not ready for cooler temps. This canvas can serve as a reminder that the cold doesn’t last forever and maybe encourage us to get outside no matter the time of year. Vitamin D does the body good! 
I plan to finish mine as a flat stand up, but this would be just as cute as a small acrylic tray, framed or a door hang!
