|Tree trunk and branches stitched for my first crazy quilted messenger bag.|
I do seem to love embroidered trees and landscapes. (You will see more when I finally share the other projects I have been working on!)
I threaded my needle with two strands of floss using two different DMC flosses: 1 strand of #838 and 1 strand of #610. I like the color variation this gave the chain stitched tree trunk and branches.

Today will be a busy one; yet, I hope to find some time to add some leaves to this tree. I would love to use green silk ribbon. However, this part of the flap will be in an area where I worry I may snag ribbon leaves. So, the leaves will most likely be lazy daisy stitches with a few different shades of green DMC embroidery floss. (Or maybe I will use a variegated green EdMar floss?! So many choices. *Grins*)
I wish you a wonderful weekend!
