The leaf-symbol is one that keeps coming around. It reminds me of my eye-haemorrhage, it is a perfect symbol for the time when I lost one of my twins and when a door was closed behind me never to be opened again at 19. Therefore I chose to combine these three experiences. Each leaf is in a different stitch, stemstitch, back- and running stitch.
The seven stands for the influence everyone of us has on the next 7 generations. For example the habits we have and pass on to our kids, our values and daily actions. Used pinpricked insert-collage with a running stitch around it to embellish it.
Have a wonderful weekend!
