The Loving Tree

 A Personalized Family Tree or Not

Fits 5 x 7, 6 x 10, and larger hoops

I made this to honor my husbands grandparents who raised him. I was blessed they accepted me as one of their own.

I think it would be neat to have everyone in the family sign it. But some are currently out of the country so it would be difficult to get all signatures. Also since I am in Texas and most of them are on the east coast there is that logistics issue. But I will still have it when we get back there and get some signatures then.

The Loving Tree - Charlie & Aubrey

The lettering across the top of the tree is not included in the design.

200 x 323 mm (8 x 13 inches)Finished as shown above

193 x 280 mm (8 x 11 inches) Without top lettering

Divided to fit the 6 x 10 and 5 x 7 hoops

You can use your embroidery software to add the personalized lettering at the top.


For a small fee, I am happy to make the lettering for you as long as your machine can sew a design that will accommodate the design size which is 200 mm or 8 inches across. Please leave me a note which hoop size you are using so I can make the alignment stitches appropriately if they are needed.

I know some Husqvarna owners can sew the entire design including the top lettering all in one hooping. I had to hoop twice: part 1 - the tree and top lettering + alignment stitches at the bottom. And then part 2 - alignment stitches + the bottom lettering
