Wowee! I just love this Tree - is got FUN all over it! :-)
Just look at that owl button - it could have been made especiallly for this piece, couldn't it? The blue twisted chord edging makes the perfect border for this colourful, yet very feminine piece - I just want to smile every time I see it!
Congratulations, Amanda - I think this is a winner!
Kim has used a wonderful hand-dyed fabric called 'Spice' from Picture This Plus, and a range of hand-dyed threads from Crescent Colors and Weeks Dye Works.
I love the use of cool colours on the warm background, and how the owl is camouflaged! The little white rabbit adds a touch of whimsy to this beautiful tree!

A stunning tree in blues, purples and pinks, reminiscent of twilight colours.

Karen has gone 'brilliant and funky' with her eye-catching tree of bright yellow, orange and lime-geens. She's also added in some extra leaf-stitches on the roots below the tree - autumn has obviously begun!

A classic 'spring green' tree, with daffodils blooming below, and a pearl-grey bunny!

Deb's worked her tree in fiery reds, and added some extra leaves below to add to the autumnal feel. If you look carefully, she has decided not to stitch the owl, but has filled in completely with 'leaves. It works beautifully!

A 'fairy-tale' tree, in gorgeous pinks and mauves. A pure white bunny sits below - where's Alice?? Just stunning.

Lori's tree is in the midst of an ice-storm! On a hand-dyed fabric, pale blues, whites and touches of glistening silver add to this tree's winter look. No bunnys - but two owls, both with white tummys! Magical!

A real 'summer' tree, in full bloom! Every shade of green imaginable is in this tree, and yet it all works together perfectly.

Rebecca's tree reminds me of the strange light you often find between storms on a summer evening - the warm fabric colour helps give this feel, lifting the yellows and greens to give a mellow look.

Another winter tree - or is that early spring? There's a daffodil out - and an adorable white rabbit has appeared! Beautiful soft colours!

A tree in high summer - you can almost feel the breeze stirring the leaves on this lovely tree by Zlatina!

Sheer magic - a pinky-purple tree? But yes, it works! How fun is this? Showing off what can be done with just a couple of hand-dyed threads - it's just beautiful.

A gorgeous tree, in soft 'bluey' greens on a warm 'summer glow' feel fabric. The touches of pink at the top of the tree add focus, and Melissa has used more than one colour for some of the stitches, emphasizing their shape and texture.
