Finally Finished....


Well, to be honest, I've been finished this for over a week, but forgot to post it. Oops.
Remember how I was working on this....
when the great side-tracker Aubrey got me to help her make this?.....

Well, I finally finished my wall hanging thingy....

I got the idea from Cluck Cluck Sew and I added my own little twist to it. 
I desperately needed/need stuff for the walls in our master bedroom, they're bare and boring. 
Not good.  


So since Zach and I are Fall buffs and we both love trees, this seemed like the perfect idea to hang in a random frame I had from a few years back.
I love me a good garage sale find!


I wanted to stitch our initials on the trunk (Amy had done this on a tree thingy she made for someone's wedding present), but my embroidery skills are seriously lacking. So, no initials....maybe some day in the future.
And this is my sad sad room.... 
But it's not quite so sad anymore, a little sale Anthro bedding(from my birthday 3 years ago) and some stitched tree art and I'm on my way. 
Look at me go ;)

Turned out great Jen. You might want to consider doing 2 more and hanging 3 in a row above your bed. Maybe summer / fall / winter scheme.

Thanks girls! So true Marlene, it looks a little bare with just the one picture. I was thinking I needed to add something else and I'm loving your idea!
