Trees 2012

Perched nearby the computer is this creative nudge
"Go to your studio and make stuff"

(the card from Fred Babb at

Last year about this time I was constructing 3D trees

Looks like I'm making trees again this year!

Starting with batik'ed fleece from,
 randomly strip-pieced together on a felt background.

Then I tested out many of the built in machine embroidery stitches with variegated rayon threads.

(The resulting back texture is interesting all by itself!)

Cut the triangle tree shapes

Added a quick trapezoid for a tree trunk and stitched around the edges.

A forest of cheerful trees.

I made stuff.
