Y.....

Not only the letter Y but must also use the colour yellow, the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge this week. . Hmmm, my old dictionary only had four pages of the letter Y.  This one jumped out, what on earth does "Yggdrasil" mean? "An ash tree in symbol spiritual oneness of the universe" From a  Scandinavian myth.
Aah. My son has three cats all named after Norse deities.  Haemdall Tyr and Loki
Haemdall and Tyr, this made me realise I don't have a picture of Loki, must remedy that, he is enormous.
I digress.
  Yggdrasil  

The fact that is is an Ash tree resonated because of the current threat of Ash dieback.   This tree connects  both life and death. So finally here it is, my tree which looks dead but has deep roots.

I have made the pictures as large as I can, Google seems to have removed the click and enlarge feature, if any one knows if it can be restored please let me know.

Love the silhouette of your ash tree very striking. I don't know anything about blogs but I just clicked on you page picture and it enlarged beautifully. The cat picture stayed about the same when I clicked on it. Hopefully that is of some assistance.

Hello Pat - and snap! Who'd a thought it: great minds think alike! I love your interpretation, that yellow sky really glows - fabulous! My ginger cat has a very ordinary name I'm afraid - Daisy! Thanks for commenting on my contribution. Julie Ann xx

Pat, I think this is my favourite of your alphabet pieces I've seen...and my 'click and enlarge' worked just fine so I was able to enjoy the lovely details of your stitching.
