This morning I finally created the Christmas tree forest. I decided that each tree needed a different fabric for the trunk and I only had 3 brown fabrics in my stash, so I placed a request on the Quilting Board for 4" squares of 9 different brown scrap fabrics so I could get the trunks done. Several lovely people responded to my request. I took the offer of the first person that had 9 fabrics. I received them last Monday and got my tree trunks cut out. My Christmas Tree applique wall hanging is now ready to sew. I had to stand on a chair to get all the trees in the one shot. I placed 11 of these trees in this wall hanging and I'm putting the last tree in a square all by itself.
I did send my brown scrap fabric angel an appropriate thank you gift by return mail last Thursday and she should get it tomorrow. I made her a lovely quilted wristlet in a black fabric with royal blue polka dots. I hope she gets a lot of use from it.
