Birch Trees - Day 7, 8 and 9

Well it's about a month until the show in TO and I still have 3 pieces in my head plus the 6 birds I thread painted last month.
Enough of this " Oh look...it's Spring"  nonsense.

There wasn't a reason to post the last few days of hours of sewing because I slowly worked down the length of the piece inch by inch removing pins as I went.

Doing a quilt and taking a few days off up north was a nice break, but.......

I am now about 10 inches from the bottom.
So it's time to address the bottom.

Using wool as shrub stems, a darker batik for dead leaves and coloured cheesecloth, I'm ready to finish this.
Again, it will be at least two more days of stitching. Fortunately it's going to rain tomorrow.
