October Ornament

At first it seemed quite a challenge to design my own Quaker style ornaments when I couldn't find existing ones suited to my taste and my vision for my Bride's Tree --- I was determined to make the entire set using Quaker motifs. But as I completed another design and another and another, it got easier. Or to be more accurate, I got more accustomed to the discipline imposed by the Quaker style. The October Pine Cone is my own design and, in my opinion, the best of my designs in this series.

Beautiful design and stitching!

Isn't it amazing how sometimes simply putting our mind to something and actually trying it....we find out things we can do?
