Basic Skills Necessary:

  • backstitch
  • threaded running stitch
  • lazy daisy stitch
  • french knot

Pattern Description:

Life continues despite hardship.

I made this pattern after sketching the tree - see original sketch in picture.

The pdf pattern is one page and contains stitch and color suggestions.

Of course, if someone asks where you got the design, it'd be nice if you told them I made it. :)
