A start on Peace Tree

Well, I haven't been blogging, but I have been stitching. I mentioned last week that the latest in Jim Wurth's dodecagon series had arrived. After finishing the notebook class samples that were on my 10" stretcher bars, I reused the bars to mount the canvas for Peace Tree.

The ornaments in this series have had a lot of variety in terms of their layout. Some have been four-way geometrics, some two-way, some completely abstract. This one has a different "feel" to it, though. It is a two-way geometric, but it's also trying to be an abstract representation of a real thing, in this case a Christmas tree. I don't think this is going to be one of my favorites in the series. It's interesting, and I love the way the crescent stitches come out when stitched with Rainbow Gallery's Flair (more on that in another post), but it's not really a pattern I would have picked out to stitch if it wasn't part of this ongoing series. I'll keep stitching to see if it tries to change my mind!

Hi Jeanne,

Well it is looking "interesting" so far and I'm curious to see how this project develops. :-)

There is an awful lot going on in the bottom section which is looking a bit busy right now. I'm looking forward to seeing how the bottom section fits in with the overall design.

I will be interested in whether you enjoy stitching it and how it comes out. I am only stitching on my second one so I don't have to stitch this one for quite a while. I admit that at this point I don't particularly care for Peace Tree. It seems ungainly to me. I looked at it and started to figure out what I could use the canvas and threads for...

Of the eleven so far, this is the only one I will not be stitching. I just looked at it when I opened the box and knew I would never do it. I've never planned on framing them as a set, so I -can- skip it. Good luck with yours!
