My next Christmas project is going to be crocheting a couple of little trees to go with Sarah's very cute book The Little Tree. I love that you can get the pattern to recreate Little Tree and bring the story to life in a way. I'm going to do two for my niece and nephew and they can share the book. I'm not so naive as to think they'd share a tree :)
You can buy the book and see some more images at Sarah's Felt store.
I need to find a good brown for the trunk still, which means another
trip out to Spotlight - when I popped in last week they were
reorganising and it was so radically different that it felt a bit
surreal and I couldn't quite focus on what I was meant to be doing and came away with a totally wrong brown! Sad when a craft store revamp sends you into a tizz.
