Not Much to See Yet...


The next round robin block for my attention is Barbara's winter block. She specifically asked for a tree on each of her blocks; and this if my favorite version to stitch. I'll be adding some snow to the branches and a wee little bird's nest. Then the seams on the block will need some embellishing...but, thought you might enjoy seeing the basic tree traced from my book Embellishing Crazy Quilts to tissue paper...pinned down...and stitched over. Running stitch and stem stitch are the only two types of embroidery stitches used here. 
 
It looks a little "blah" right now...but will improve as more is done to the block...so stay tuned to see the transformation.

My favorite things are trees, I love it. Can't wait to see the end result.

I always think trees seem to have more character without their leaves, so many branches all going different ways
