Jacqueline Holdsworth has so very kindly listed this design as a download on her wonderful Needleprint site asking that donations be made in exchange to whatever charity one chooses to help those suffering so greatly in Japan. Thank you, Jacqueline!
After watching the images of the terrible tragedy unfolding in Japan these last days, I've found it difficult to spend my time on the usual projects. I had been thinking for some time of a companion piece for Hortulus and this weekend it came together for me and I'd like to present it as a permanently free pattern. I hope it will evoke the same feeling of peace for others that it has for me.
I'm posting it in two color schemes. As I worked on it I kept seeing it in grays and terra cotta, but think it would also work using similar colors to Hortulus or for that matter in whatever color it might speak to you.
I hope to finish Hortulus in the next day or two and begin One May Night next, but wanted to offer 'Sanctuary' to you first.
