It's been 2017 for a while now. I've been pretty busy but still a little stitching happened since Dec 12 of last year :0)
We decided to do a little renovation to our basement family room. My sewing area is in that room so it got mostly packed up until the drywall dust settles. I just had to still sew so a small space was made in my bedroom to sew with my little Singer featherweight. I received the Patchwork Diva's book "Treasury of Quilts" for Christmas and wanting to start something new, I pulled a few fabrics out of bins and made these 3 trees. It was lovely to sew in my bedroom with so much natural light but it will be good to move back into my bigger space downstairs.
Instead of applique, over Christmas I worked on this EPP project. It grew quite a lot. It was a good portable project to work on.
