Orange Tree



Salaams and Hello Everyone,

How is your craft activities?. I hope all of you enjoy your craft activities as much as I did. Back to my orange tree story. I once read this, A researcher says -- An orange a day can keep a heart disease away, so do take an orange a day to stay healthy *smile*. My orange tree had also helped to keep my stress away..*wink*. I had done the wooden beads covering with silk ribbon few months back but I could not finished the whole design as I don't have wire to make the tree trunk -- and when I stopped, it will take sometime for me to resume..hehehe..



Since I am not in the mood to do cross stitching and looking at the chart even make me more 'pening', I decided to do something 'light and easy'. I walked 5 minutes to the nearest LNS, bought a pack of wire and start to make a tree trunk and overcast with variegated perle cotton no 8..


I then worked on the basket with woven filling stitch using variation perle cotton no 8, adding forget-me-knots flower and leaves...


Walla..a completed Orange Tree and forget-me-knots design from panel 10, Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork by Di Van Nierk.

Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful day ahead.
