Today I sewed the triangular sections onto the centre square. There will probably be more smaller Lemoyne stars appliqued onto the smaller triangles.
At the top of the photo are 2 fabrics I am deciding between for a narrow border. I had thought I would use the green, but now I am leaning towards the brown . Anyone have an opinion???
I hand stitched the Lemoyne stars, but everything else is sewn on the machine. I haven't done very much piecing by machine before. There has been a bit of frog stitching this afternoon!!!
This tree is in our backyard. It flowers in mid winter every year and brings the knowledge that spring is not far away.
Our original Cootamundra wattle was planted almost 30 years ago. They are not a long living tree, but grow quite quickly. This tree came up by itself after the original one died. It is about 15 feet tall.
There are many varieties of wattle trees and most of them flower in spring.
