Slow progression

There has been some stitching on my fall crazy quilt and here you can see what I managed to do yesterday....


I really love working with waste canvas (which I'm sure you have figured out by now!) and this was a great tree to create using that technique.  It was 'interesting' getting the threads removed - I think because the stitches were in all different directions.  My post tomorrow will show you what I did next with my tree.

Today the quote is from Jane Logan..... "When you're stressed is when you most need to look for all the ways that you're blessed"

Oh I really can relate to this quote today. I have never worked with waste canvas. Your tree looks very intricate and amazing and I can understand why it was difficult to remove waste canvas threads. Creative Stitching Bliss...

I am entranced by stitched trees. I keep saving pictures of them for future projects. The one that Mary Corbet showed in split stitch grabbed my attention. I can't wait to see your post tomorrow!!
xx, Carol
