Applique needle or pine needle.....that is the question

Hello Everyone,

We made some progress with our tree trimming and clean up.  What a mess....but it could have been so much worse.   Before we started cutting this tree up, it measured 122 feet!  That is going to be lots of firewood in a couple of years.

The rest of the tree is going to be man-handled by our sons.  I enjoy working out in the fresh, crisp air, but this is a little too much for me.  This clean up has severely cut into my quilting time! You know the saying, "I'd rather be quilting!"  I'll take my applique needle any day over all of these pine needles! 

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

As always,



  1. I'd pick quilting needles over pine needles everytime too. Looks like your got a lot done though. Can't believe how huge that tree was. Hugs

  2. I agree, Lynn! Did you get any good pine cones out of it to save for decorating?

  3. Very impressed with how much work the two of you did with that tree. Huge undertaking. Now you can sew guilt free.

  4. I too like to get outside to stretch my quilting muscles. Sometimes it's a struggle to find the right balance.
