This is another case where my love of book covers combines with my passion for cross stitch. This is a Thomas Canty painting which was the cover for Patricia Kennealy-Morrison’s The Silver Branch, which is part of a favourite trilogy of books. When Michele charted this one, I bought it on the spot and it is the HAED pattern I chose to start stitching. It’s going to be slow progress, but I’m loving how it has turned out so far.
