I broke out of the box today and made this:It’s a wall hanging and I’m not sure if it is done yet… I’ll look at it again tomorrow and think on it then.
I knew I wanted to do a patchwork style background. I used fabrics to represent the ground, green grass, the sky, etc. I then attached an embroidery hoop to give it some “depth”. I knew I wanted a tree and bird theme but did not want to embroider the tree so I found a stick that looked pretty tree like to me, and attached it with some thread. I embroidered the spring leaves and the blue birds and viola – a wall hanging inspired by nature.
Singer and Craft Magazine are hosting a contest and if I still like this tomorrow, it will probably be my entry. It was fun to do something different for a change – perhaps I do this more often.

This is so great!!! Is there anything you can’t do??? You should make a few and put them on Etsy and see what happens.
I can’t cook rice very well. So yes, there is something I can’t do.
That’s beautiful! It always feels good to do something a little different now and then… keeps the creativity flowing.
That’s pretty cool! I like it. Alot!
you are a crafting goddess!!! I LOVE this!
Ooooooooooooo. YES! I love, love, love the way you incorporated the twig. Brilliant! *running to my studio to copy you shamelessly*
Denise – I’ll let you, and only you, copy 🙂
Genius!!! Can’t wait to see how it turns out.
