Here is my Halloween Tree, inspired by the book by Ray Bradbury. It's been a favorite book of mine for a long time, but i just got around to stitching something up.



I didn't use a pattern just started stitching and kept going til it felt finished  Cheesy
I used cotton floss on felt, i like the texture of the peice this way. Thanks for looking Smiley

Really nice work - I admire all who embroider - I can do/have done, but those of you who free-hand it, I really admire that.   Cheesy

Lovely piece.  I, too, am impressed by anyone who can free-hand embroidery.  This is such a pretty tree and I love the little cat under it.

Wow, this is really nice. I love it, esp the little kitty under the tree! I'll have to look the book up.

I really like this piece. While it is Halloween themed, it's not so over done that you couldn't leave it up all year if you wanted.
