My little sister is sooooooo jealous of this right now!


Four Trees by Bent Creek

My sister is the self proclaimed tree-huggin-save-the-earth-hippy in the family. Don't get me wrong, we were both raised to recycle, reduce and reuse by my my just-missed-the-freelovin-60's-but-got-the-point-of-it mom but my sister is right now trying to put together a "green" wedding for her 150 closest friends/family/future inlaws. This is not as easy as you may at first think. It is way easier to trash the earth on limited funds, being carbon conscious is expensive.

So no, this is not for her wedding, this is mine for my office (I AM a biology teacher),. It is Four Trees By Bent Creek. I believe it is an older pattern that is now OOP. I used the called for threads in Anchor/DMC/and GAST on 28 ct linen. Stitched it over spring break, and framed it yesterday but I have to wait for a sunny day to take a decent picture for you. This morning's light didn't cut it.

Anna, thanks for the advice on attaching trim, I'll try that next time and let you know how it goes.
