Tree of Creation Cross Stitch Pattern -
The border around the Tree tells a fascinating story. It begins with Celtic knotwork at the bottom, symbolizing paths toward growth, a journey. The vines at the corners represent Mother Nature influence, and are followed by animals, and finally humans. The peacocks near the top carry souls to heaven after death, and the heavens themselves are filled with brilliant spirals, symbolizing both Nature as a whole, as well as the Spirit and the Mind. Pattern is based on artwork by Cari Buziak. the design measures 332 stitches wide by 380 stitches high.
Quote of the moment: The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. Thomas Jefferson
