Moss and felt trees

I spent the entire day at home today (except for a quick trip to the post office) and loved it. I slept in, re-organized the studio and unpacked a couple more boxes. Charlie kept bugging me 'cause she wanted to go to the backyard, so I went out there with her and all she wanted was to sunbathe! I stayed out there with her and just sat in the sun for a bit too. It's been a bit drizzly lately and I noticed bits of green moss peeking out in between the patio slabs. Such a beautiful green.

I also tried out an idea I've had in my head for awhile: simple felt trees. I only made three, but I think it'd be fun to make a whole grove. They're inspired by these trees (which I still want to make one day) I found awhile back. I love the simplicity of it, but thought it would be neat to add some texture.

I sewed up little cones out of semi-circles and just stacked them on top of each other. I'll try and post some pictures of the process soon. Oh, and I just caught up on my blog-reading and saw this tutorial for similar trees made out of fabric. Really cute as well, be sure to check it out.

I like these trees. Perhaps I'll try one myself. Seems like a good starter project for my son, too.
