I Got Trees!

See what Miki made for me?

I squee-ed when I saw it, cos it's just so cheery, but would you look at it? One big tree all decorated . . .

. . . and a medium tree, complete with birds, and then a little tree hiding in between.

AND . . . hand applique and hand quilting . . . and all that beading! Such an amount of work! I'm so honored!

But wait, there's more . . . check out that binding! I LOVE THAT! So unexpected, and very awesome indeed!

I know it's kinda Christmas-y, but I wanna leave it hanging all year.

And not only that, but look what else was hiding in the package for me! How did she know? I can hardly wait to use this in something . . .

Thank you so much, Miki! I really love it all . . .


  1. As soon as I saw the cowboy fabric I knew who gave it to you! :-) Very sweet! Nice job miki! Lucky you Shelly!

  2. I am so glad you got the quilt, and that you like it, Shelly. I had great fun making it. The fabric was from one of the people in my guild. She had quite a bit of it, and I grabbed this small piece. I thought of you as soon as I saw it.

  3. Ohhhhhh! I have been collecting fabrics for a cowboy quilt for about a year. I have some cloth bags that some local rice comes in, and maybe a piece of that same fabric! LOL.

    Can't wait to see what you do with it! I have been afraid to touch mine, lest I ruin them.......


  4. Love the rustic frame & all the hand work in this little beauty!
