"Thirteen Colonies" was a true labor of love. Once I had designed 90% of this piece I turned to my mom and together we talked the rest of it out, worked on finishing it together, and chose threads together.
Thirteen stars frame the names of the colonies and the center scene, all of which come together to represent the "beginnings" of this country. The dates represent the first and last colonies. You will also see a crown which is the symbol of England, the country that governed the colonies before their separation.
My mom Carol is the one who stitched it which makes this design even more special for me. When I said it is my most favorite LHN design, it is all of the above that makes me feel the way I do. I hope you like it too!
