I'm currently trying to finish my tree before Saturday. I'm a member of York Dolly Birds which is a cloth doll group, we meet once a month and in the main make cloth dolls. We do lots of other stuff too one of which was making a tree using a toilet roll holder for the base. This was painted then we wrapped wire round to form the trunk and branches. This was then covered in pre-felt, or in my case a felted wool jumper. We made some felt which was then needlefleted onto the base. I've just checked and actully posted the unfinished tree in Nov 2008 :0 !! At the time I ran out of felt to finish the tree and ordered more online, but unfortunately it was a totally different colour. I only discovered yesterday that at some point since I'd bought wool tops that were a near match but obviously had forgotten about it. As many of the members of the doll group were working on a project, the lady who runs the group set us a challenge to finish one of our UFOs. This is going to be an apple tree; I realise it may not look a lot like an apple tree and it started off as a generic tree but I've decided to make some felt apples to put on. The foam is there so I can lay it down while needlefelting near the ends of the branches.
If you'd like to show us what's on yoour workdesk pop over to Jovial Julia's to find out what it's all about ;)
