Worked in 90 Degree Off-Loom Stitch (90DO-L --sjm Nov 1997) using size 11 glass cut  seed beads with 14 x 14 gauge (silver, purple, green, blue, dark blue, gray, gold, dark gold, brown; 11.5"w x 15.5"h) then stitched to a piece of duck canvas on a wooden frame (thin wood under canvas).  Tree pattern adapted from a knitting pattern in the 'The Tap-Dancing Lizard' book (Catherine Cartwright-Jones, Oct 1992, Interweave Press; black&white with color inserts); border adapted from a charted celtic knot border piece in the 'Celtic Charted Designs' chart book (Co Spinhoven, Aug 1987, Dover Publications, black&white).  Color choices, placement, background cameo (surrounding tree) mine.  Part of display (04-29-2006).  Detail.
