This is my new Finish AMAP Alphabet tree freebie ( beware looking atthe charts… it is easy to spend money here as we all know) When i saw this freebie on Friday i immediately emailed it to paul to be printed ( i have no ink,……)
and started it on Saturday, it was such a fun , fast stitch i had it done by last night ( sunday night)
yes it is bright, i wanted to create a tree that would have lived in The Enchanted Forest, i think my tree is enchanted….
i used the wonderful new LE Black/double deep purple/double midnight velvet silk from hdf for the trunk and branches ( see my letter N off my heritage lettres sampler below for a better look at how well this stitches up)
i also used the lovely discontinued holly leaves for the leaves and my precious LE zinnia goldrush mix for the alphabet ( paul picked that colour i had been going to use hot pink ) it is stitched on the wonderful 35 ct undyed linen from HDF 1×1 of course…
and a better look at this lovely dark toned silk using my letter N as a model…again 1×1 on HDF 35 ct linen
the only thing that saved me from purchases was my irrational fear of ordering from non english sites.. yes i know they have an english version but i always worry if there is a problem no one will understand my when i email.. or i won’t understand them..
it is a good policy from the point of view i am addicted to Renato parolin charts which are also really only available on non english sites , or i would be $100’s in debt on his charts alone… and don’t get me started on AMAP charts i could spend $300 in five minutes there no worries
