Here it is...January's Bride's Tree Ornament..."Love". The symbol is obviously the heart, which denotes true love...After being married for twenty-six years to my Dear-Heart, I can attest that true love is the vital ingredient that makes one happiness out of two lives. I couldn't wish more of it to all the new brides and grooms out there. This is the second of twelve ornament designs in the Bride's Tree Collection. I'm releasing one each month. The models are stitched with Crescent Colour's Belle Soie Silks and Hand Dyed Cotton floss and Mill Hill seed beads but I've included DMC conversions for all the colors. For more info on the tradition of the Bride's Tree check out this previous blog entry.
Note to everyone signed up for subscriptions through their LNS (Local Needlework Shop) or online shop: These publications are shipping on Tues. 1/18/11. We got a little behind on shipping because of the snow. We're not used to snow that piles up and stays for weeks down here in Dixie. It's been an adjustment, I must say...But a beautiful one. So, have no fear...They're on their way after MLK Day. Thanks for your patience.
One more thing...Just a reminder that Miss Amy of Down Sunshine Lane is offering a special subscription program for this collection. If you participate you'll get the 12th design for free. Big thank you to Amy for offering this.
