Swirly Tree Hand Embroidery


As I've been slowly working my way through the year, doodling and drawing each day, I've noticed a theme emerging: nature and love.  One of my best selling embroidery patterns is this very simple tree. I didn't think it would do well because, honestly it's just a bunch of vertical lines.  But that is my most-purchased pattern.

One day a couple of months ago I sketched this more elaborate version of a Love Tree and I knew immediately that it would need to be an embroidery pattern. I loved sketching this tree, but embroidering it was even more fun.

I used long and short stitch in 4 different colors of brown to fill in the body of the tree and I loved watching how it came together.  Swirls and hearts, I tell you.  They make me happy.
