This year I have decided to combine two of my interests together into one project. Cross stitching, and my family tree, including the heraldic images that go with each surname. It is a big undertaking and will take me years to complete I am sure. However I look foward to recording family history in this way.
As a practice piece, I chose to stitch the Rockhill family name coat- of-arms. Rockhill is my maiden name and if it turns out nice, this will be a gift for my parents.
I took a look at some of the images online, to produce this depiction of the family coat of arms.
I Have already plotted out the pattern for the coat- of- arms, and I am pleased to say it looks well! 21 colors/ 29045 count. Size:157×185 I am using 14count Aida cloth. I plan to use DMC regular colors for the embellishments, and DMC Satin line colors for the helmet and crest ( what sits on the helmet head) as well as the shield.
I will post more pics of my progress as I continue to work on this project!
I do not sell what I make, or seek any profit from the patterns I create. .
