    What a great idea! One could do this for one's own home. It would be neat to do four of them for the seasons and hang them one at a time during the right season. Hmmm, does that make sense? Well, I know what I meant. Sorry if it did not come out clearly.

    jeanlee, these are lovely!! What patience to sew on all those tiny beads!! Did you also crochet the snowflakes? My mom gave me some years ago - you have inspired me to do something similar and incorporate them. Thanks for sharing.

    I love that idea KLO. I have always loved seasonally and monthly themed quilts.

    I love them. The tree's remind me of the way river birch's leaves turn in the wind and show so many different highlights. Great job.

    Oh my those are surely beautiful, I have never seen a anything like them. I can only imagine the work that went into those but very well worth it. Your work is very very nice. I have trouble making one french knot, can't imagine doing all those and having them look so good! Thanks for sharing.
