Sherwood Forest

This is probably not Sherwood Forest. It's fun to have my own little forest though. I am fighiting a cold I think and I decided to take it easy today and craft before work. I have subbed more regularly lately, and I am glad for some work, but it sure is exhausting.

I have been working on these for a few days. It would go faster if I ironed the interfacing on th fabric and cut the semi-circles out once, but I am stingy with my fabric and interfacing so to get them as close together as possible I cut them out of the interfacing, then iron, then cut the fabric.

I did what I said, and modified the pattern adding more cones (I increased the diameter by 1.5 inches for each semi circle. The previous trees all had 4 layers. I made 5 and 6 layer trees to group with the originals and I made a new set of three that's slightly bigger. I am going to see my Mammaw this weekend in Columbus and I am planning on taking her a set and mailing a set to CO. They are so cute! :) I have a few other projects in the works, we'll see if I get anything done before the weekend though.
