I've just begun to learn hand embroidery and made these because I was thinking of doing a tutorial for freehand stitching trees.

The birch trees are on a piece of felted wool, and the outline of a tree is on some scrap fabric that I painted with watered down acrylic first.  They're small... I think the birch trees are on a 3 inch hoop.

I don't have the attention span to follow someone else's pattern, but I want to make patterns for others to follow if they want.  The girl with the cookie is for my mom.  I colored that one with watercolor pencils after stitching it... but I probably shouldn't have.

They're all really nice.  I absolutely love those birch trees! And the girl with the cookie is really sweet. I like the sort of mixed media thing you're doing.
