Hugging Trees and Gathering Inspiration

It’s no secret that I am a tree hugger. And, as you can see, I am not the only tree hugger in the family ;-). My favourite place to be is the woods. I love the scent of the woods. I love the crunch underfoot. I love the sounds. And then there’s the benefit of the negative ions.

For a while now, I have been hankering after making an applique quilt, but hadn’t been able to decide on a theme. Now I have decided that the theme has to be trees. I have been gathering together inspirational tree art on my Pinterest board here. Feel free to take a look, and watch this space for preliminary sketches and plans ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the pics of you and your son hugging trees. And your idea for the quilt is perfect. I know it will be beautiful.

  3. Trees for a quilt is a lovely idea. Whereabouts are you hugging those trees?

      This tree is at Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk. I love the sign beside it “Please DO TOUCH the trees – or even hug them” ๐Ÿ™‚
