these are my entries for a contest a local brewery is holding.  each entrant gets a free 6-pack and the winner gets a years worth of free beer! i don't drink beer but my husband does so i thought i'd help his chances (he entered a painting).

thank you!
i used my machine (which was kind of a pain because certain leaves rip from the presser foot) to stitch each leaf onto brown craft paper. then i took grass and just sewed a straight line of grass at the bottom. then i stitched the tree trunk onto the paper and painted the blue on. i am fairly certain i did all my steps backwards but that is just how my brain works.  Wink
