The tree so far

I've added the tree to my wall hanging, and embroidered it, but there is much more to do, as I plan to embroider a saying on the bottom, and add borders. Meanwhile, I've gathered together left over bits of strings and blocks and made a border on the fungly quilt. I hope to pin baste it later today, maybe. It will no doubt be a "museum piece" when finished. And I have so many projects going at once--knitting a vest for my librarian daughter--surprises for my granddaughters--crocheting a sweater for myself--making a table runner--the list goes on! Meanwhile, a new crochet book arrived.

Thanks, Jacquie, yep, I first needleturned it, and then I blanket stitch with pearl cotton.

Very lovely! (The fabrics for the water and the sky look so real!)

I just love the tree. I too have so many things going on at once. Wish I could finish them more quickly to start up even more! Blessings, Kathleen
