Genealogy has always been one of my
I finally made the effort to create my own Mother's Tree pattern! In the next few weeks, I will have it available in my Etsy shop, XedStitches. I want to get it framed before I offer it for sale, hence the delay. I will be offering it where I do the hard part: the charting of the names. It will include an alphabet so future generations can be added.
Here is what it looks like for my maternal line:
I figured if I was going to stitch a model of it, best to start with me (no kids) and go back.
Here are some details about it:
- Fabric is 32count white evenweave that I tea-dyed.
- Tree is stitched over 2 (so 16count) using Gentle Arts Sampler Threads (GAST) in Acorn and Forest Glade.
- Text is stitched over 1 using GAST Weathered Barn.
- Overall size of stitched area is: 16½" (41.91cm) tall x 22" (55.88cm) wide. This will, of course, vary.
I will definitely take a better photo once it's been framed.
