    • That tree definitely was 3 dimensional. I did a tree like that a few years ago and used a spindle as the stem (I have a WHOLLLLLE collection of old cruddy primitive spindles I have collected over the years – for what??? who knows but they look lovely!). It almost looks like maybe she used some kind of heavy duty wire? since it was curved or maybe it was something she repurposed and covered with the wool. But old chair spindles doweled into a base work beautifully. The one I made had a flat piece of dyed wool on the back but I believe this one was hooked back and front and joined together on the sides (fold under the edges – usually monks cloth – and hand stitch together or whip together – this one looks whipped together) and then stuff with fiber fill. I think she also used a flat piece of oval shaped wool for the underside of the tree and whipped that on. It was a really fun fun piece…
