Connecting Tree

This is the last piece I’ll be making for the Bedlam Farm Open House.  I started it this morning.  It’s called Connecting Tree.   I made  a small pillow with a similar image for the Common Thread Give-a-way when it was last my turn.  Since then, I’ve been wanting to try it again, bigger and with more color.

It’s about being connected to the earth and sky and it all coming together at the heart center.  The roots of the tree hug a lotus-like flower and it has stars for leaves.  The heart ,at it’s center, visible through a hole in the tree.  (Just one way for a heart to be opened)

I’ll finish sewing the border on tomorrow, then it will be time to start changing my School House Studio in the The School House Gallery.

  1. I love the intricate stitching that makes up this tree, and the stars for leaves and the heart and the lotus flower. It reminds me of an ancient, mystical design for bountiful blessing. Annie
