BB's Tree

Its BB's birthday and I decided to make her a homemade gift that I know she'll enjoy.
See its a tree.....


You see BB is always running around my house saying something, or should I say announcing something to everyone, something that is extremely significant. Reader do realize that BB is going to be 2 so in her short span anything that she sees could be considered extremely significant. Recently she's been fascinated with the heart decorations that have been hanging on my window from Valentine's Day. Little BB would run around pointing to the window and yelling with all her might "Heart!" It made her happy.
Her mommy taught her many more words and one word that she says, which I enjoy, is her pronunciation of "tree." Every time she says it she shows the gap between her front teeth. She just looks adorable. I'm sure to get a TREE when she sees this softie.

The pattern from the tree is from softies, simple instructions for 25 plus pals by Theresa Laskey. The instructions weren't lying when it was identified as an easy project. My version is a loose interpretation of the tree. Traditional green was my choice for the tree top instead of the suggested turquoise and I cut all of the leafs freehand as suggested but didn't necessarily use the recommended sizes which I'm sure would have made it a perfect replica but I decided to do a little improvisation on it and lo' and behold BB's tree came to life.

I like to craft.....it makes everything I'm thinking of, all the things I need to do at work, just stop.
I get to create and BB gets to yell TREE. Everyone is happy!
