Radiant Tree of Life



It has been a crazy-busy week here. In the middle of it all, I managed to zip up this little cutie. It is made totally from my scraps (a recurring theme in my life and definitely not a bad one.) It is a Radiant Tree of Life, made to go in a silent auction that benefits an organization I'm involved in in Austin, Tx.



Didn't it tun out CUTE! And guess what? It ended up going home with my friend Doug and his amazing wife, Allison. (Doug is the person who inspired this little piece.) Isn't that FABULOUS! Enjoy, my friends!




I hope something or someone inspires you today! Happy sewing!
