It's Coming Along


I think I have finally pretty much figured this little thing out.  It's been a wrestling match trying to do the background forest. Love the tree and even the little bear is okay.  He still needs a hand and his face. 
The tree needs part of the porch and a third window up high - however, it may get just a hole there. 
As for the forest, I was trying to put too much in it and it looks much better simple - at least I think so.  I'm not very good at doing something like this without a pattern even though I had Bill's drawing to follow.  I have just laid some of the release paper down as clouds and think they look pretty good and gives some interest in the sky.  Will cut and fuse some clouds and add them.   Next will be figuring out a border.  I will straight stitch around all the pieces and try and do some nice quilting to set the piece off.   (Click to enlarge)

Carol the little wallhanging looks just wonderful. You have such a talent. My friend used to have different family members tape their voices reading each of there favorite childrens stories because they all lived far away from the baby. Just think now days what you will be able to see and do with this baby from a far.
