Your invitations look so professional and classy.  The combination of the brocade with the house is really attractive!  Is there meaning to the image of the building?

Those are really lovely!  They look very polished w/o being staid or boring.  I love the combinations of fabric, ribbon and button.

SoDakHoney- Ahhh.  Be sure to show us when you finish (both the chart and the baby)!  You can even PM me or add a link in this thread so that I'll be sure to see it.

Kargrrl- I'm blushing and not just because it's hotter n heck this evening.  Thanks so much for your generous words!

hippiejo74- Seems like there ought to be more things like this available that aren't totally toddler-themed.  You know something you'd want to see in your kitchen or laundry room or that the kids wouldn't "outgrow".

Hard is what it is.  People who are good at it are some kind of amazing!  I can't imagine being able to do them parallel and I think I may even have a foot for my Pfaff that does it (not that I used it here,  mind you).

Anyway, thanks to Mimi and everyone for all the love.  Combined with the PMS I'm all misty now!

violetta27 - Thank you!  I was trying to make the trunk look "barky" with out looking rough. It took me hours, but I'm not disappointed in how it turned out.

sarahmakes - Thank you! I was thinking the same thing about all the numbers and marks (and the likelihood that I'd be inaccurate).  If I remember correctly, I was inspired by the one of the prints that has measuring tapes, but they only go to 12 or 20 inches or something.  Then I realized measuring tapes are sew-able!  Whee!

Thanks everyone!  I was starting to think I'd made a dud and that Mimi was going to have to be polite.  Maybe it's just her Southern Hospitality or something, but I think it worked out okay. That's what happens when the only person who sees it in real life before sending it is The ManFlesh.  Wink

I love the quilting technique used on that tree. So imaginative! There's one thing you can say about Mistress T, she's not a boring gal. All of her stuff is so cool!

I teared up when I read that.  Thanks!  Is that some kind of quilting?  I was SO just making it up as I went along which is one reason this medium turned into an XXM, I think.   Kiss

I made this for a swap and since my partner received today, I'm going to post it here.  It's a growth chart for her baby-on-the-way!  Her nursery will have a nature theme.  I was all amped up to paint a growth chart on wood or MDF, but it seemed like the shipping would be challenging.  So after PMs and wist-stalking, I thought why not a fabric tree?

Mounted in my basement wall.

Close-up of the many little tucks or pleats or whatever they're called on the trunk.

It's really hard to sew crooked on purpose, but controlled crooked!

A handy dandy pen pocket for the fabric pen:

And how it will look to the baby (when he or she gets here), only on a cuter colored wall:

I'd never done anything like this before and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, but boy was I nervous about my partner liking it.  She does or is faking it really well!  YEY!

Now that makes a statement!  You did a great job matching up the pattern.

Thanks y'all!  I'm itchin to do another bathtub, but the opportunity has not arisen.

I am SO glad (and relieved) that you like it Mimi!  Whew!  Also relieved that it got there as soon as it did.  The trunk is my favorite part, too!  I tell you what, it is HARD to deliberately sew wonky, but wonky-just-so!  I don't know what those little tucks or pleats are called, but it was my first time doing that kind of thing and I liked the challenge. 

Recently some friends sold the house they had when their 2 girls were born and they have to move away from the door jamb that they'd been marking the girls' heights on.  SO SAD!  I thought that shipping a wood one would be difficult (and expensive) so I was really glad when I was looking through Mimi's wists as saw several trees... I had an ah-ha moment!
