'The Sparrow' Unveiled!

Excited to have picked up my finished The Sparrow from the framer yesterday! Alas, I did try for a mini photo shoot, but light wasn't the best and I had to stop! I did get a few, but I do want to get some better pictures, to choose for the front cover of the design! This wasn't awful, but I know I can get a better picture!

This design gave me lots of peace and calmness while I was designing it! And I think if you stitch it, it will also give you that same peace and calmness! Some softer colors mixed in with more prominent colors, done with a mix of overdyed fibers from Crescent Colours and Gentle Art Simply Shaker Threads on Lakeside Linens Vintage Examplar 40 ct linen. I love it, and I hope that you do too!

This one does show the frame choice better:

Do you see the sparrows in the tree?

I hope to have the patterns formatted and completed by the first of the week, if not sooner! If you would like a copy, please shoot me an email!

Thanks so much for visiting Tree of Life Samplings blog and as always your comments are very much enjoyed!

Warmly, Jan @ Tree of Life Samplings
