I Love Trees

Was it the middle of the night or was it while I was walking with Scooter? I just new I had to have bigger and more elegant trees in my walking with Mr C and Scooter quilt. That is one of the beauties of my neighborhood — the trees which have a different beauty for every season. I played around in photoshop most of the afternoon, stylizing photos of trees to get the image I wanted. This is the winter tree.

Here is spring –

Summer –

And autumn –

They are printed on organza. After I add Mistyfuse to the back, I will trim around them. They are making me very happy.

Here is today’s 3 x3. It is a memory of how it looked at 4:30 when I took Scooter for a walk – blue skies and sunshine, after a morning of rain. Really beautiful.

It was stitched very quickly because I was busy with trees and the Oscars.

I enjoyed The Artist, which we saw last night, but I didn’t think it was Oscar worthy. I am a bit mystified by all the hype. I really thought George Clooney should get best actor. But what do I know!!

    Love the trees, Gerrie! My daughter and my best friend were not as impressed with the nominees this year as they usually are. They enjoyed many of the movies, but didn’t think they were of the same caliber as in previous years. I wouldn’t know…I usually watch movies after they’ve been realized to DVD or Netflix!

    I really like your trees. So, we were both Photoshopping it up yesterday afternoon, huh!

    It’s bright and sunny here today with temps in the low 60s – pleasant after a chilly weekend.

    And I thought Gary Oldman should’ve gotten the Oscar…but I haven’t seen any of the movies yet this year and likely won’t ever see most of them!

    Oh, so you too get ideas in the middle of the night!
    I like these trees Gerrie.

    Your trees are wonderful, as is today’s 3 x 3. Today was odd. We had sun, snow, sleet, wind, more snow, and then sun. We were coming down a hill into town this afternoon and all around us you could see individual storm cells with the Blue Mountains in the distance covered in snow – gorgeous. Wishing you a fun filled week.
