Wonky trees!

Just in case you thought I had given up my wonky ways I thought I would show you the latest in our wonky world!

Trees!


Here were mine in the making - using strip piecing and applique which I have done before but then I moved onto curved piecing and reverse applique which I hadn't tried out before...









These were my trees going off to the US of A to find new homes throughout the world!


And here are the ones I received back!  Tada!


The green set!


The colour set!


Have to say I am happy with them all and particularly with this little one which has more airmiles than I do!  He was made in Australia by Leanne, (aka daisyandjack)  he flew to see Jane our swap mama in the USA and then flew to stay with me!



Now I have to let you into a secret!  Leanne told me she was going to label one for me but wanted me to guess which one!  I duly told her I liked all her trees but said this one really spoke to me!  And then that tease Leanne wouldn't say anymore except I would have to wait and see!  


So I couldn't have been more delighted when I saw him at the top of the pile!  So though I think you are truly outrageous (hehe) I thank you from the bottom of my heart Leanne!
