A Big Tree


I reached a milestone tonight on And A Forest Grew. I finished up the big center tree and all of the verse. Now it is downhill, or rather, smooth sailing, from here!

I have been asked if 18th C. Band Sampler, aka Long Dog Mystery Sampler, is still in my rotation. Yes, in a sense, it is. However, round robins are eating up a lot of time right now, as are exchanges and gifts... so I have not been able to fit it in for a while now... but I have not quit on it, that's for sure :-)

Stitched on today: Finished Crazy Exchange project, and And A Forest Grew

WOW! This piece is really looking great!

I also wondered about some of your WIP list because there are many that are not on your rotation and you never mention or post pictures of.

The big tree really makes the project look good. I was a bit dubious about all the various bitty tree-ish stuff until this update. :D It's a lot of fun watching the progression of a piece over time.

That looks beautiful! I love it. I have had to put aside my Four Seasons for now to work on exchanges and RR's too :D Oh the things we sign up for, but it is so worth it!

Kathy said...
