I have been feeling rather creative lately and thought it might be fun to try something for my mother in law (very scary).
Anyway I love trees and family trees too, so a "family tree cushion" is my new project.
Each bough represents a person in the family.
The centre bough is the parents each bow coming off is a child and then each one of a particular bough is that child's family ( I hope that made sense).
Then when I was happy with the layout I started working on the fabric,
with stuff I already had (been put on a budget - currently $0)
I'm happy so far and that will do for today.
