Because I work "in hand" this is a little wrinkled but I was excited to finish this month's assignment!  I was surrounded by Jacaranda trees in bloom last month here in Southern California and was inspired to change the colors on the main tree in this segment to somewhat represent one ... I changed the lighter green to purple and then stitched purple french knots over the darker green ... it is hard to see here but the green still pops through a bit.  Phew!  Lots of stitching!! But I love the challenge and use it as an excuse to stitch into the wee hours of the night.


  1. I love your tree. Always enjoy seeing those in bloom if I drive south. We don't have them here in Lodi. What a great addition for you!

  2. Oh my goodness, that is beautiful, I am loving your tree and I wish I could see the french knots, they are one of my favorite, just great, thank you for sharing your work

  3. Wow, that is beautiful! I love the tree!
