Two big poplar trees have been cut
down in a nearby park...
...and that´s how it looks inside their
trunks - a sorry sight indeed...
...their neighbours, still standing:
That´s why I didn´t have to think twice about
participating too when I learned about
the International Fiber Collaborative´s
Tree Project through Rough Around the Edges,
where Robin last week showed a beautiful
mossy leaf she made.
So this is my contribution: a 5 x 7 inch
quilted leaf on a felt base, with an oak
leaf on top which I made when I first started
felting years ago...
The International Fiber Collaborative is going to
create a full-sized tree in April 2009 in Huntsville/
USA, using about 30.000 fiber leaves, contributed by
participants from around the world. A gallery with some of
the leaves already sent in can be viewed here -
and the deadline is March 15...
