New Design Pic of Road Home

I got this back from the framer's today, and let me just say I am thrilled with it! It is so incredibly rich in colors and the frame moulding is just right for the piece! I was able to get a fairly decent picture for the front covers of the patterns, which hopefully will be ready for retail sale, next week!

Please do click on the picture, it will take you a larger pic, and will help you see the design better!

Road Home, by Tree of Life Samplings
Stitched on 35 ct Weeks Dye Works, Parchment
Stitched with Belle Soie Silks, with a conversion for Crescent Colours cottons
There are areas in the bottom half, for personalization! More information will be included with the chart!
I hope you love it at least half as much as I do!
Thank you for taking a look, for commenting and for purchasing! If your local needlework shop does not yet have my patterns, tell them to please contact me! If you would like to purchase directly from me, feel free to email me! Thanks again!

Don't forget, if you haven't yet signed up for my giveaway, to close on Saturday, the 17th, please comment in the previous post, on this blog! Good luck to you all!
