CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Designer Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles tells of her inspiration for Adam's Menagerie:
"This menagerie of little creatures will make you smile as you stitch. The critters include a hedgehog, an ostrich, a red squirrel, quail, a pair of chameleons hiding in the bottom corners, tiny hummingbirds and the leopard hidden up in the tree, plus many others!
Genesis verse 2:19 is the story of how Adam named the newly created animals & birds in the Garden of Eden."
Creative Poppy says:
The layout of this design is particularly interesting, with the tree and its black branches as the central focal point. Animals are huddled around it, the sun glows in a distant haze. This is a lively and cheerful pattern that will be fun to stitch and beautiful to display in your home.
"And out of the ground, the Lord God formed every beast
of the field and every fowl of the air,
and brought them unto Adam to see what he would name them."
"While this is not actually a birth sampler, it could easily be: Just add a section at top or bottom with your baby's name and birth info. Copy the border on each side down to continue the length of the sampler!"
The mostly cross stitch pattern comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart. Specialty stitches include a couple of eyelets as well as a few petite stitches used for detail only on the quail and humming birds. Instructions provided.
