An apple, my pretty?

Sometimes when I'm working on a project that takes up quite a bit of my time, it's nice to stop and focus my attention on another quick little project. The instant gratification helps re-energize me for the bigger project.
This little apple tree pin was just the quick fix I needed. First of all, I must mention Elsa's felt pins, because I never would have thought of making the apple tree pin had I not viewed her works of art. Her Garden pin is by far my most favorite one.

What is it about roots that are so fascinating to me? They seem to come up from the earth to take a little peek and then down they go, plunging into the deep, dark, earthly, abyss. And metaphorically it's true to say that there is so much more to a tree, person, or situation than meets the eye. I often need to remind myself of this before I go jumping to conclusions.

I guess I just answered my question =)

Very Nice.

I'm happy that a pin admonishes you to look beyond the surface. I love to hear how accessories are symbols of meaning.

My bird beads were inspired by Luke 12:6-7. Jesus encourages by saying not a single sparrow is forgotten and you are worth more than many sparrows.

FUN. I totally agree about smaller projects spurring you on to continue with the larger one. I should have done that with the baby quilt I did. It felt like it took foooreeevveerrr.

I love Elsa Mora's style... Your pin is beautiful, and I know what you mean about having to take a break from a bigger project with something smaller. Very pretty!
