I finished whipping the edge of this new rug last night and I'm really pleased with it. It's not very big - just 15" x 19" - because I used a scrap of linen that I had in my stash and just made it work. I included 5 fruits to represent my hubby and our three children. Used an assortment of yummy browns for the border and trunk.
I based it off of a design I found in one of the old needlework books I have in my library, and just drew it freehand.
Talking about the tree of life makes me think of my family, of course. My little grandson Tyce just turned 10 months old and they had family pictures taken. We are so smitten with this little guy - how could we NOT be with eyes like this?
