An apple tree finish

 I just finished Maggie Cos. Village Apple Tree and now I have to decide what to do with it.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to finish it into a pillow for my living room but I'm not quite sure how to do it.  I have several ideas running around in my head, but I just can't decide on which one.  When I finally do, I'll be sure to post a pic.
As you can see, I've added to my scissor collection.  The one on the left I purchased from my LNS the other day.  Remember me saying about her  "scissor of the month club".....well this is hers for autumn.  The other one I just got in the mail from Anita.  I love the copper color and the scissor fob I have just matches it perfectly.  
I have 3 commissioned pieces coming in the mail for me to stitch and finish so I'm just a little afraid to start anything new right now.  I still have to take pics of the stash I want to sell so maybe I'll do that till I get them.  Two are Just Nan's and one is a wedding sampler so they should keep me out of trouble for awhile....maybe.  LOL
Blessings as always,

Love the new finished piece - red - what's not to love about that! The scissors are beautiful - I can see why you collect them - I especially like the heart fob. Happy to hear you'll stay out of trouble for a while ;-)

I'm anxious to see how you finish the lovely apple tree. I have to visit Anita again. I saw those scissors and didn't act on the impulse, but I'm going to act now!

I am sure no matter how you finish it, it will be just beautiful. Love the new scissors, a girl can never have too many.
