The Tree Behind the Old Homestead

I wanted to bring the tree forward from the backgrond so I decided to make it textural. I layered stabiliser, some dyed wool fleece various shades of green and some dissolvable and free machine in a random method over the bundle. I then washed away the dissolvable and this is what I am left with. I will now cut and position this for the tree. I will have to add a small amount of free machine quilting to the right of the house to push that back so just the house stands proud and then I am finished except for the binding. I will use a facing binding on this piece. Both Textile.org and Haf Weighton have asked me to send photos of the finished piece so I will be able to do that hopefully tomoorow
