This is an original cross stitch design that I made for my mother.
The saying reads "Our family is a circle of strength and love. With every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger."
I loved this saying when I saw it and just had to make a cross stitch sampler from it. I come from a family of 9 children and I have seen over the years how true this saying is. I designed this about 10 years ago and decided to include it in my collection of patterns I am offering to the public for sale.
I used reds and blues and greens in this picture and the vine that entwines the circle is representative of how each member in a family's lives connect and intertwine with each other. I have a great family - wonderful children and beautiful grandchildren. This pattern comes as a pdf file and included in that file are a full color instruction sheet, a color picture and a full color cross stitch chart using DMC floss. This is a very elegant design. The vine is not really suited for a beginner but if you use Linen or Evenweave it is much easier to stitch. I also have cross stitch helps and tips on my blog at www.ladyrobinsnest.blogspot.com
I have been cross stitching for 30 years and have loved every minute of it. This is one needleart that I have never grown tired of.
So come enjoy the world of counted cross stitch with this original design from Lady Robins Nest!!
