Snow Globe Tree Decoration

The Sew Seasonal Blog Hop is FINISHED, however the project challenge  is OPEN until November 30th. The patterns are HALF PRICE on Craftsy until the end of Novemeber. It's hard to gauge how many folks will submit a project but with great prizes on offer, I have put together something small. Yougottabeinittowinit, right?

My last block was rotary cut using the 'Ornamental' patterns by Alyce so I thought I might give one of Kristy's Paper Pieced patterns a go. It was hard choosing but I wanted it to tie with the 'Snowglobe' embroidery I had finished using Aneela Hooey's 'Little Stitches' book. So I chose the Christmas Tree. (I simplified the base to make it a 'growing' tree). 
I am a bit rusty with my paper piecing I must say. I made many mistakes and unpicked more than half the time. I used regular A4 copy paper instead of tracing onto baking paper and that made ripping it all off at the end WAY more tedious and messy!

I used the same method, as with the previous 3, to make the circular tree decoration. I was able to sew the kid's names on over the weekend.
Linking up with TGIFF and A Bowl Full of Lemons
