Well Sumptuous Surfaces has sent me off in new directions. Not only am I having to learn to design an embroidery it seemed a good time to begin a blog.
The course is wonderful - week 1 has been a steep learning curve for me and no doubt the curve will remain in that direction.
My Concept has narrowed down to "Our Family Tree". I started with the thought of circles emanating from peace in one's heart. After research on the Web and considering various symbolisms of circles and rings I was taken by the imagery of "Flower of Life". My design has been based on this.
The centre of the "Flower of Life" has 6 circles of equal diameter - I used this in my large circle to represent our family. The smaller circles represent our children's families including their spouses and our 7 grandchildren. The concentric circles enclose the entire group.
