A couple of my husband's and my good friends are getting married this weekend. We both wanted to contribute to a hand-made gift for them rather than than the usual registry list gift.

I made a wall hanging Teesha Moore style with an embroidered tree with their initials carved in the trunk and fall leaves to reflect the time of year they are getting married. I also added the date to the bottom.

My husband, de6w6it, made the metal hanger for the piece. He bent and welded metal rod to look like a tree branch with a heart.

I hope they love it.





Thanks for looking!

Very pretty Abbeeroad! I love how you took the TM style and made it totally unique, the tree crossing several patches is really pretty and has such a lovely effect. Lucky friends! (oh and the hanger your hubs did is awesome too!)

I love this idea and it is so beautifully executed. I love how the design crossed over the patches and all the different colors and textures you gave it.  Amazing job!
