Let me tell you about…

Last July I showed you the colors I chose for the Tree of Life pattern from Abi Gurden of Stitch Specialists Yahoo Group. I haven’t had as much time as I would like to stitch on this but I hope you enjoy seeing what’s happening on this fun piece. The theme I chose was to move through the seasons as you move around the tree starting in the lower left part with Winter and moving up into Spring, Summer, and then around to Fall. The color I chose for Winter doesn’t show up in the photo but does show up well on the piece. I really like the way the Fall color is stitching up. I’ll put in another couple of sections in the Winter color and then begin Spring. All my threads are Waterlilies from Caron Collection and the fabric is Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed 30ct fabric.  I’m loving stitching with these!

Just a start.

Just a start.

Did you know that you can see what’s new for leaflets each week by logging on to Hoffman Distributing and signing on to their Friday Update? Just click here and then click on E-Newsletter on the left side of the page to sign up. There is no advantage to marking that you’re a shop! Each Friday you’ll receive notice that they’ve posted the Update and you can go there to see what’s new that week.

While you’re on the site take a look at the “Friday Feature” where they interview designers about how they go about creating their work. These interviews are interesting, helping you connect to your favorite designer.

Until next time!
