I just adore patterns by The Sweetheart Tree and have now modified two of her patterns to come up with what I wanted to stitch. I wanted to do a more rustic feeling needle roll, so I took a chart that I already had and used half of the bands to come up with what you see below.
Design: Whispers In The Pines
Designer: The Sweetheart Tree
Stitched On: 30ct. Natural Linen using DMC threads and WDW Mallard, Mill Hill beads, 1/4" satin ribbon and a Larch cone that was coated in real gold by my uncle who used to go into the mountains with his gold panning equipment.
Thank you for all of the little notes you have left behind as you have wandered down the dirt road that leads to my life. I treasure each and every one of them.
