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 πŸ™‚

    Enjoy! I am looking forwar to your new creations πŸ™‚
