Slow Sunday Stitching -- The Tree is Done!

I'm excited that this part of this block is complete.  This is the most handwork I have EVER done on a block.  Look at all my fun leaves.  I'm still in the learning process (which I will always be.)  I tried different techniques while stitching.  I really am enjoying the process!  Enough taking... here it is:

I'm linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.  This week's progress is shown here. It's a gorgeous day outside here in Ohio.  Have a great week, everybody!
  I'm also linking up with Sharon at Vroomans Quilts for the Let's Book It challenge for November.
I'm working from Cheryl Wall's book Welcome Home.  I really like the quilt designs in the book.  The instructions are illustrated nicely.  They are easy to follow.  The only thing I don't like about the book is that the instructions are cut, sew, cut, sew...  I sat one day and just wrote out all the cutting instructions on pages and pages of notebook paper to help streamline the process when it comes to stitching the blocks.  Other than that, I LOVE the book!
