Even More Pattern?

Could it be?  I've added even more pattern and detail to our Mystery Class Tree?  If you've been with me from the beginning you have learned never to expect the expected.

When I first saw this canvas it reminded me of the Mackenzie-Childs design duo.  All of their pottery and glass and furniture is layers of pattern on top of pattern on top of pattern.  You know I love that.  Add to it black and white  classic checks and stripes and I love it even more.


I borrowed this image off the Mackenzie-Childs website to give you a little feel of the style and because it's cute and has puppies. You know I love puppies. 

Now that the Tree is back from the framer I can reveal the idea that has been in my head since day one.  Yet another border.  This time black and white stripes!


Hope you like it.  It adds another level of whimsy to the piece and takes it that step away from traditional that you know I need :-)

Perfect! Never expect anything less from you. Your style, imagination, and creativity are beyond compare.
I always look forward to seeing what you come up with next. I live vicariously through you when it comes to left brain creativity.

That is absolutely fabulous. Motivates me to get mine finished and framed like that. I have never seen a frame like it but you are always full of magical surprises.

Oh, I must have that frame! Is there any way you can order it for us or tell us where to get one? It is PERFECT for the tree (that I really need to finish up).

Hi I'm so glad you all like the frame. It is what was in my mind from the beginning. Send us your stitched trees and we are happy to have it framed just like mine!

Ruth, I love it! When I ever get mine stitched, that frame is what I want!

Wow! We step farther and farther back. That tree is actually at the end of the world , and we all expected it to be in the back yard.
