Vintage Style Courtship Embroidery

Aren't these two sweet? An adorable sandy haired boy taking the hand of a very innocent looking red haired girl. Or, as my daughter said, a Ginger! I found the original image at Graphics Fairy.

And, here is my embroidery. I didn't use any pattern on their outfits. I thought too much pattern might be messy here.....

Aren't they sweet? I don't know if he is asking her to dance...

Or for her hand as his wife. Does she say yes?

I backstitched this entire project and added a couple of french knots. I backed this project with a blue and green cotton floral.
