Tree of Stitches update
Just popping in to give a quick up date. This is the Tree of Stitches through Part 10. There are a couple of sections that have beads, I haven't put those on yet. It's starting to look more like a tree!
I had fun at my LNS last weekend pulling more threads for this design. So far I've used silks, metallics, silk perle, cotton overdyes and silk overdyes. It's been fun pulling it together.
I'm originally from England and my husband and I now live in Arkansas, we've been here in the USA since 1975, and in Arkansas since December 2000. I became an American citizen on June 9, 2008. I learned to do needlework as a young girl and have never lost interest. I always have something on the go; cross stitch, Hardanger, knitting, crochet, something to do with a needle!
I'm a mother to two grown sons, one living in the USA and the other in London, England. I'm also Nana to two girls.
I work full-time at our local community college as an Administrative Assistant and I'm a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), an organization I've been associated with for over 30 years.
