Watching a Tree Grow

 When I was a kid
I wanted to grow up to be
a cartoonist for the Walt Disney Company.
I loved to draw
and drawing figures that would
be animated seemed like great work.

I'd try and draw flip books.

Now you can do it on the computer
 using stop motion.

So here is my latest applique
not done with fancy computer work
just a lot of needle turn.

Scroll down quickly and 
see how my tree grows.







How's that for fast work!
Not really!
Until Next Time-

  13. I remember flip books!!!

    Is your tree from one of Kim Mclean's patterns? It looks like one in the Roseville Album quilt.
