Topiary tree.

There hasn't been a whole lot of papercrafting going on around here lately, has there? LOL

Life is busy...and if I wasn't commited to stitching a little one inch square every day, well.....maybe I wouldn't be blogging at all :) I love that this project is so portable...I stitched this square at my local library this morning while waiting for my car to be serviced.

It's a topiary tree, complete with little oranges. It's a tribute to my wonderful in-laws actually...they have been orchardists for many many years, and are starting to downsize operations as they get older. An orange tree in a pot is about as downsized as you can get, I think :)

That's my block done for the day...and I have birthday cards to make!

love this topiary - seems Italian! Also, the trike is adorable - I am thinking of adding a bike to mine as this is a dream for me to have a fabulous pink one some day!
