Retreat block progess

Here's how my block stands right now. I added a bit of height to the pine tree and extended the swirl of leaves up towards the butterfly.

The butterfly is not attached yet; I haven't decided if it's flying up or down.

The leaves remind me of my favorite line from The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore:
"As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky..."

How pretty! Love all you've done! That too, is my one of my favorite lines from The Night Before Christmas.

Beautiful work. I stumbled upon you doing a crazy quilt search and then a link from When this you see.
Had to laugh when I saw that you were just "down the street" in GJ. I'm an AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser; quilter, lecturer etc. who lives in Moab. Nice to meet you here. I have a blog on antique quilts and one with art quilts and reproductions.
