....I love you, trees!!!!
That's why lately I'm obsessed with them, quite a lot!!!
I have different projects on the hook related with trees, but let's start with the first one....

....a star and a granny diamond......only one????

....obviously no !!!

...yes, above you can see all the pieces needed to complete a christmas decoration.....

....I'm only waiting for the right mood to start the sewing......

But I have other 2 project on the way!!!!!

The second work has to be kept secret until the middle of November.....sorry !!!!!!!

I can show you the third one, instead, ok? Good!!! ;oD

Working with granny diamonds, gave me a new tree idea, but nothing to do with Christmas, this time!!

I wanted a huge tree.... measures 62cmx62cm, more or less !!!!!

I started with the foliage, crocheting in total 14 granny diamonds and joining them with the "join as you go " method.
Then, I made the trunk, starting with 3 complete granny diamonds to which I joined 6 half diamonds!!!
Even here, I've used the join as you go method!
The last step consisted in adding more "leaves" to the tree. I did that crocheting a scallop edge around the green diamonds.....too much??? Maybe, but I really like the 3D effect!!!

I'm really curious to know your impressions about this tree !!!!
In the next post I'll show you what I made with it..... ;oD ..... !!!!!
