I used this tutorial by Amy Smart. I originally intended to make this into a table runner but I couldn't work that out so I off-set the trees and made a wall hanging. I added the borders "Log Cabin" style. Who doesn't love a cabin in the woods?
The back is a map because everyone needs a map to navigate their way through a forest.
Especially when there are bobcats hiding in the trees! 😜
Next, rope bowls. This year it was rope bowls for everyone. Have you caught this bug? Modern Handcraft has a video tutorial to get you started but be careful - they're addicting!
Finally, my top 9 Instagram photos. This year I updated the collage to include my top 10 because...So. Many. Babies!!! What a year! Two new grandsons for us and many new friends for them! The bottom row includes my favorite photos of major personal sewing accomplishments: finishing this year's Summer Sampler, completing 100 blocks in 100 days (watch for that quilt to hopefully be finished this spring), and meeting Crazy Mom Quilts!
17 has always been my favorite number and 2017 did not disappoint! Thank you so much for sharing this fun journey with me. Your encouraging comments are so appreciated.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
