These are the Oak Tree, Maple Tree, Cocoa Tree, and Eastern Hemlock
While I was waiting for the silk to arrive I continued stitching on the background for my "Stitch for a Cure" needlepoint cushion. But this will now be on hold until I finish the Palm Tree sampler.
Stitching background can be just as theraputic as counting from a chart. While filling in the background I was mulling over ideas and fine tuning the design for another SAL project for my blog, and in the shop I spent much of my free time playing with fabric and thread colours (one of my passions). The SAL will be another 15 sided biscornu. I'm very excited, in my mind it's awesome. I'll start stitching once the Palm Tree sampler is finished.
Stay tuned for photos of this new SAL's fabric and fibre selections in my next post.
