I started making this a year ago, and this project has taken forever to finish! not because it's hard, but because sometimes I get lazy. so here's a picture!



the yo-yos are from the remnant pile at walmart, the trunk is made from a sweater that belonged to Daddy, and the buttons came from my husband's grandmother's stash. I also embroidered our initials into the tree. Here's a few more pictures closer up:







what do y'all think? this was my first project like this!

I think it's pretty! It's cool that you used an old sweater and buttons -- kind of like the idea of a memory quilt made out of favorite clothes that outlive their use but still have memories attached. And the heart embroidery is too cute.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
