New Releases~One Framed and One Sneak Peek!!

First presented is Quaker Peace: The Companion. It was made to be a companion to Quaker Silence, although that is entirely up to you, it will stand alone nicely! Same fabric, Lakeside Vintage Meadow Rue, 40 ct, stitched with the same fibers, if not all the same, most very similar by Gentle Art!

I found the perfect frame, at least I think so, I hope that you like this piece as much as I do, it was a joy to design!

Second presented is Emma Rose Friendship! Many of you have been waiting on this one for some time, at least one in the Emma Rose Series of designs! This is a sneak peek, Emma Rose is at the framer's now getting her frame on, and hopefully by the end of the week, I can share a full pic in her glorious frame:

ANOTHER sneak peak...Emma Rose Series!!!

This is a portion of Emma Rose Christmas, one of two designs for the Emma Rose Series. Many of you may remember, Emma Rose was the name of my great-grandmother, and these designs are my way of remembering her and her life. I know that you can be able to incorporate your own family memories, maybe that of a special grandmother to you, as Emma Rose was to me.

Not sure yet, if this will be released before Emma Rose Friendship, but they both will be released within the same few weeks! I have Emma Rose Friendship in the hands of an ever so wonderful model stitcher at the present, but Emma Rose Christmas is in my possession, getting stitched by moi, hence the ability to show you a real sneak peak, since it is not finished yet! But know this, I am pushing myself, since I already have the frame picked out and the framer is waiting...

I know, I know, it isn't much, but some is better then none, don't you agree?? I will show you more, when I get a bit more done, promise!

Oh and for you Quaker fans??? Completed and framed picture of Quaker Peace is forthcoming, stay tuned!!

I am so sorry to be such a tease.....thanks for stopping by and check back again soon, for more new design updates from Tree of Life Samplings!! Thanks so much for your continued support, means the world to me!!

A Sneak Peek of a soon to be New Release....

This is the companion piece to Quaker Silence, titled Quaker Peace: A Companion...at least a sneak peek or two! It is at the framer's now getting it's coat frame on and I hope to be able to reveal it to you next week! A special thank you to Mary, one of my wonderful model stitchers for her care and time in getting this back to me, so quickly!

The wonderful thing about this piece is, you can have it as a companion, but it stands alone so beautifully! It also makes a super great companion piece, since I used similar colors of overdyed fibers as well as the same brand and color of linen. The size is just a bit larger, but mostly the same dimensions as Quaker Silence. Just your own desires, and I do so hope that you love it! Pics are clickable to get a closer look!

Here are a couple pics:

Quaker Peace should be ready for release by Market time! I am frantically working on the Emma Rose series, and I will be sharing a sneak peek of Emma Rose Christmas in the next few days! Also it won't be long until Candace, one of my bestest model stitchers, will have Emma Rose Friendship ready for the framer's! So lots new coming your way from Tree of Life Samplings! I am excited and I hope that you are too!

Please share your thoughts, I love reading them! This is such a special time for me, sharing my designs with you for the first time! I always cherish your support and kind words, thank you in advance for both!
