Into the forest

Last week when I showed the tree I had made and said I was cutting squares and circles while I watched TV, Lisa commented that if I watch enough TV I could end up with a forest! Exactly what I am going for. Here's a little progress sneak peek.

Tree tops:

Have you ever seen a chartreuse sky? I have chartreuse on the brain. It works as a sky for me.

Tree bottoms:

The top is together. Next will come the quilting, which, I hope, will change it all quite a lot. New territory. This is kind of a new direction for me, closely related to the chartreuse quilt in my title bar above.  I am itching to get to the quilting part. I kind of feel like that crazy detailed stitching is my "new thing."


  1. hand or machine stitching I'm wondering. When we see a chartreuse sky here in GA it's time to get into the cellar!

    It's looking wonderful. I can hardly wait to see the finished product!

  3. Oh, I am so loving this. Hope to see it on Thursday.

  4. This looks so fun -- can't wait to see it finished! I'm guessing the stitching part is addictive, too.

  5. The quilt looks great and I love the chartreuse sky. I can't wait to see the finish quilt.

  6. This is looking so fun, and not at all Christmassy anymore. i can't wait to see it all stitched!

  7. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. I like what you're showing today and can't wait to se what you add in the way of needlework since I really like the piece in the header of the blog.
    Love the photo of you and Gerrie. It's good to be the Queen!
