This is a side project to the other one that I have been posting about. It is just a small part of the whole. I still have some more work to do on it but what do you think so far?

So I finally managed to wrangle this silly tree into submission. It has eluded me since day one. The putting together of the tree was simple, but I just couldn't figure out how to stitch it down. Well, inspiration came when I went to a art show in Chicago with my oldest sister and then it was just finding time to work on it. Now all that is left to do is to put a back on it so that it can be hung on the wall. What do you think? I just love the little bird!! :-D

Well. I have become such a sucker for fabric. I have always loved fabric with its different prints and textures, but I have only recently (in the last two years) started being able to buy it to really make things like I have always dreamed. I already have a stash of fabric that I've been slowly accruing, but they have been fairly basic fabrics. Not really anything very pretty. But recently I told you about winning some very lovely wordy fabric. Yesterday I happened to stop at my local quilt shop and found some more wordy fabric. I had to have it since it was all they had left. It is newspaper print!! I love it!! I also found some others that I just couldn't resist. See what you think of them!
