USA Tree

I have another finish. This is USA Tree by Helga Mandl. Since I do not live in the USA but really wanted to stitch this design, I decided to stitch it as a gift for a friend. That friend is Colleen in NY. We have been in the same on-line stitching group for years (I honestly can’t remember how many years LOL!) and she LOVES getting stitched gifts. And I think that she needs a little cheering up 🙂 So this was just perfect for her. I don’t think she has any pinkeeps yet, so I decided to make her one out of this design.

USA Tree Pinkeep
I did change the green colors to 500 and 502. And I added beads and buttons to the design. I think it turned out cute 🙂

This pattern was offered to the members of wXSw (a Yahoo group) as a part of the Christmas SAL. Design by Helga Mandl.
I stitched it on 28ct White Opalescent Linen using DMC threads, Mill Hill beads and some buttons from my stash.

Colleen, I will mail it as soon as I feel well enough to go to work. You should at least have it before Christmas 🙂
