After I came across some 18th century trees on Dutch and Frisian cross-stitch samplers I became inspired to create my own version of a tree of life, based on old examples.
I personalized my tree by putting my initials on either side of the stem. You can personalize your sampler with an alphabet which is included in the 4 page PDF booklet.
I think it would make an amazing baby shower gift - with the name of the little one stitched at the bottom!
This little sampler measures 107 by 83 stitches, and embroidered on 32-count linen (12 threads/cm) it will be approximately 6.7 by 5.2 inches (18 by 14 cm).
Although I have opted for a monochrome red sampler, you can choose any colour or a mixture of your favourite colours.
All my patterns are available as high quality PDF files. To open these files you will need Adobe Reader, which you can download here for free: http://get.adobe.com/reader
