Well it's been a long time coming! But I finally have a new design to add to my pattern selections! I am happy to present to you "Tree Birds"! I went days trying to come up with a name for this rug... nothing felt just right...but the song Free Bird ( a favorite old rock song of mine..tee hee) kept popping into my head. Hence... Tree Birds! LOL! I guess you just never know where inspiration may come from.
But seriously... the birds are inspired by those I've seen on antique fractur art. The tree is patterned after the tree of life that is often seen on antique textiles and artwork, with my own spin on it of course! The heart at the base of the tree signifies the love which nourishes and holds family and friends together and keeps the tree strong. There is plenty of opportunity for you to personalize this pattern... perhaps adding initials to the heart for a newly married couple or older couple celebrating a milestone anniversary. The date can be changed appropriately if you so desire.
It's an overall antique inspired design that I hope will add warmth and meaning to a special area in your home.
I have the paper pattern listed in my Etsy shop HERE.
The pattern is 18 by 28 1/2 inches and ready for you to transfer without having to enlarge it.
I thank you for being patient with me and also for your continued support of me and my little pattern business! Life for me right now has been pretty stressful dealing with my Mom's congestive heart failure and keeping my studio and shop going as well.
Maybe one day I'll be free as a bird!
Until then I'll try to find contentment in the present.
It's not always easy....but
hooking and designing and teaching others the love for this craft keeps me
It's all good!
