"November" is taking shape,
the little trees in the distance are done.
I love how the middle one turned out :
made with a bundle of old embroidery thread
At the bottom I doubled the threads and pinned them down
and devided the ends into branches, big and smaller ones,
then I stitched the lot.
The ends of the threads that were too long
I put in a needle and took them to the backside.
For the big tree in front I tried several strips of brown fabric
At first I thought to piece the trunk between the background pieces
but I decided against it because then the size would not be right
( all the journal quilts are cut the same size : 21 x 30 cm )
I just placed the tree trunk on top of the background
folded it and stitched it down with extra space,
to pleat it down while stitching.
( I still need to think where to put my magic thread in this one )
When the Novemder day is cold and gloomy we always decide
to end it in our warm and cosy sauna.
So that's what we did today.
