Y is for .......

Yvonne of course!
meaning 'Yew Wood '

the tree branches are worked in 'Y' stitch then I added little glass beads for berries
****
I had a fun doing a search of the name and the meaning of it.
There has always been differing opinions on the origin of the name 'Yvonne'
My French teacher insisted it was French, my Mother has always said it is an Irish name but on searching the Internet is seems that it is an Old German name the female version of 'Yvon' or 'Ivon' meaning in German 'Yew wood' or 'Archer' Yew wood was used in England and Wales to make an early weapon called a Longbow.  

I'm still undecided  on what to do with all my tags, simply haven't had time its funny how we get longer days but so busy they seem to go much faster!
I'm enjoying the lovely weather we are having here in Fife at the moment, it's great for working on my new project.
Well tag team only one Tag to go! ......better get my needle n threads out and get on with it :)
Looking forward to seeing all your 'Y' tags this week

  4. How lovely to trace the meaning of your name.
    Yew trees are very important, I think, today especially as they provide us with medicines and cures!
    Wonderful stitching, Yvonne!
