Wow.   Shocked  That pattern is amazing.  I'm going to save it and print is out, but it's gardening time around here, so I might not get to it soon.

But it's amazing.

Ok...just reading all the post and seeing the pattern in real life makes me really want to do this.  Is there anyway that I could get some one to kind of give me a quickie lesson.  I have done a little bit of embroidery but nothing on this scale.  PLEASE  Smiley

It should be a pretty easy pattern, for the trunk of the tree you could use the split stitch, stem stitch, chain stitch or backstitch.the birds and the symbol satin stitch, the buds on the tree a french knot or tiny daisy stitches,or even beads. Theres alot of online videos on hand embroidery just google it.
I have decided to go big with mine. So I printed it out on 4 sheets of letter sized paper. Im going to modify the bottom border I don't like it the way it is now.
Heres a pic of it blown up to fit 4 sheets. I did it in paint.

Oh wow.  That's going to be amazing when you're done.  I picked up the supplies today to trace this pattern so I can make it, too.

dyabolica - I plan on framing mine to go in my bedroom.  Man yours will be wonderful with the size it is.  I can not wait to see what you do.

Here is my progress since last night.  I did a little last night and a little at lunch today.  I am such a slow stitcher.  I did stem stitch for the trunk and french knots for the blooms on the tree and lazy daisies for small leaves.
