more trees please!

Stitched booklet - more trees please!

Recently I have been working on a little fabric book entitled - more trees please!  


I love trees.  I know I'm not alone.  Nature, in all its glory, has been particularly appreciated in the last year when our worlds have been limited by pandemic worries and restrictions.  Getting outside for some exercise and fresh air has been a boon - and trees have been there to provide a beautiful backdrop to inspire and uplift us.  I nearly became a forester in the dim and distant past and whilst I don't regret not doing that, I remain fascinated by the magnificence of trees.


My stitched book doesn't aim to showcase realistic trees - think more children's drawings and you'll have a better idea of what I was aiming for.



Anyway I had a great time stitching my different trees...

The back of the stitching is interesting too and I like the frayed edges of the pages...



And I think you'll agree, we could all do with more trees please!
