One piece of fabric for the background and the tree.
I tore narrow strips from the fabric and stitched them down to form the tree.
Then I cut little triangles for the leaves and placed them on top of threads that I'd saved and a friend had given me on the weekend.
I used a dark thread to outline stitch around the tree trunk and branches which helps it sit out a little from the background.
I think I'd like to do this again in a larger size.
