CROSS STITCH DESIGNS
'LIBERTY' Design Diary
'Hidden' in this design clockwise from the Declaration of Independence excerpt... a small portion of the U.S. flag; a George Washington quarter; Geronimo; Josiah Henson; the Four Freedoms; Abraham Lincoln; Sojourner Truth and the date, August 26, 1920.
As you can see from this pencil and coloured-crayon concept sketch, 'Liberty' changed very little from original idea to finished piece.

Deciding that the Declaration of Independence excerpt could stay over to the left, opened up a new opportunity to 'hide' something in Liberty's crown.
The large segment of hair above Liberty's right eye was just begging for a 'hidden' image.
The 'Maple Leaf Montage' and 'Liberty' have something in common.
Scribbled notes (over a computer print-out) led to an uneven edge and the addition of the word 'FREEDOM' on 'Liberty's' right side .
SOJOURNER TRUTH... an amazing woman.
