First post!!  be nice?  please? 
I made tree pillows for the four seaons for my mom's birthday (she loooooooooooves trees).  It's supposed to all be the same tree..just in different seasons...but yet it changes?  It was 3:30 in the morning when i got inspiration to make these, so they're a little weird

All the trees!

Spring!

Summer!

Fall!!  the leaves are really shiny, my camera just doesn't pick it up

Winter!!

the tops of the trees are stenciled/painted (i can't paint:P) and the bottoms I sewed on...except for winter...cuz i got lazy and way tired
commets?  criticism?

I really LOVE those pillows, and am always trying to find the perfect pillows for my living room. My favorite is the winter tree, how did you do that? They look gorgeous. Plus that is such as a thoughtful gift for your mom, I hope when my girls are older they can be that sweet. Thanks so much for posting this.

those are SO cool!- i love the idea of the four seasons, the different fabrics for the trunks is a excellent idea, and you did a great job painting the tops- they are a fantastic gift - i bet your mom will be very impressed

aw, thanks guys Smiley  I feel so much better about them now!

Winter I used a stencil I got from Stencilry.org, stenciled it on there, and then took a paintbrush with a tiny bit of paint on it and...stabbed?(there has to be a correct painting term, but I don't know it) it where I thought snow would be
