A tree!

I'm working on the tree at the moment....



- Some of you might find THIS article interesting - re the pros and cons of using acrylic yarn.

- The creations of THIS artist are fun.

- THIS looks like a fun project.

- HERE is a really pretty crochet pattern - could easily be expanded to make a throw I think.

    1. I guess it's somewhat dimensional because it's made up of teeny tiny little pieces of fabric and not all the edges are stitched down 100%.

    1. Thank you Sherry. The tree was fun to make, although it needs some more work yet. It's too pristine!

  3. Julierose, I wondered about the textured effect, too! Hard to tell from peering at your photograph, Ms Magpie! Your pieces must be even more impressive in real life :)

    1. Yes, I guess photos don't tell the true tale do they. The tree is quite textural in real life.

  4. Gorgeous tree!
    The red clay hands link, nice art, but feels sort of creepy.

  5. The tree isn't thrilling me - yet. Needs more work! As for the clay hands - I thought the concept was rather fun, but I wouldn't want them in my life because I'd be wondering where the rest of the person was!

    1. The tree still needs work - not sure how/what but it needs something else. It's too pristine!

  8. Landscape looking good. The tree will 'grow' on you as you continue to work on it and the rest of the piece.

    1. Did some more with the tree today and it's looking much better (at least in my eyes anyway). Now it's on to the embroidery part of it.
