Flashback Friday

Gentle Friends, I picked another piece off the wall to showcase today.  " Le Jardin des Arbes" - A Garden of Trees...  here's a snap...

This piece I stitched about 12 years ago.  It comes from a French Magazine called "Mains & Merveilles Broderie Creative."  Even at the time I first saw this on another Blog post the issue was OOP. It took me a while to figure out from whence it came and then was lucky enough to borrow another stitchers copy so that I could stitch this sucker!!  Originally the sampler used only DMC but I converted all those to GAST floss and then stitched it on a piece of 36ct? PTP Heritage linen.  The saying in the middle translates loosely to "Each tree Welcomes its way to Spring."  It's a piece that I really loved stitching and see it all the time and still love seeing it hanging on the wall.  It is a shame that there wasn't a Fall piece to go with it but thems the breaks I guess!


That's about it for today sports fans.  This Sunday/Monday we're expecting our first rain here in the Bay area for months, not much but we'll take any drip or drop that falls at this point!  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!



  1. The depictions of trees are so creative and imaginative. You must
    have really enjoyed reproducing them and your color choices meld
    beautifully. It is a "gentle", timeless piece.
