Acorns! There are acorns on the Gambel Oaks this year!
Usually there aren't many and they are quickly picked off by the squirrels.
According to Wikipedia the acorn is a symbol of patience. I believe it because I don't see them that often. We have planted many baby oak trees and it will be years before any of them have acorns.
Thinking back, I have many samplers with acorns on them showing a patience of a different kind.
I also have very patient friends. These acorns were stitched on a round-robin sampler.
Isn't it fun looking at all the variations on a simple acorn design. They are all different and they are all obviously acorns. Makes me want to stitch some more acorns. Maybe later.
