Trees In Progress…

You may have noticed… Steff and I… not so great at in progress updates and pictures. We swear we’re trying to get better! To prove it here is a little guy that’s in process now:

Little Tree

Crocheted truck and three pom pom’s for the leaves – this little guy is on his way! Way to what.. I’m not sure. Right now I’m thinking of making a few crochet and non crochet tree jar pieces. I still can’t decide if I would want everything in the jar to be made of yarn or not for this tree. I don’t want it to be too yarny but I also don’t want the yarn to look out of place with some other material. Unfortunately, I haven’t been eating a lot of food that comes in jars lately, leaving my “art supplies” a little low. Spaghetti dinner anyone?

Speaking of trees… here is another piece I’ve been working on…forever…

Patch Work Tree

Patch Work Tree

I don’t even know if I want to talk about this one due to being so embarrassed that it’s STILL not done.  It was a chicken wire frame… for months.. then it was a mod podge fabric decoupage trunk… for months… then I was super motivated! I hand cut and stitched all the leaves, glued/wired them on – and then!!!! I ran out of thread… lost my momentum… and there it sits. I plan to finish it soon though. Upon Steff’s suggestion I think I might make a preserved twig bonsai tree type base filled with moss to put it in.

PS – I love that you can see my awesome Martha Stewart Glitter in the background. yes!
