The Tree Of Life

Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

In deciding what project to prepare for this weeks blog entry I chose a symbol from last week's Torah portion...the Tree of Life. Trees in general are one of my favorite subject matter when it comes to my crafting and art work. This week I opted for another mug rug, also one of my favorite things to make.
For the tree I chose a commercial stencil from my stash. Various acrylic paints were used and applied to a piece of linen fabric. I chose a fancy piece of cotton fabric framed in a glitzy border fabric. This was layered with heat reflecting batting and backed and framed with plain red cotton. Another mug rug finished!
Partake of the Tree of Life and be blessed!
