Last week I decided I needed a change - tired of fabric, tired of sewing...
a quilting overload in the past few months, and while I do love it, I need a break
we have a gift exchange at work and our gifts are always handmade and while we usually have a special evening in January when the dust has settled, this year the decision was made to have it in December
no time to do what I had in my mind since the summer so I went to Plan B
Plan B started with a project in Christy's 12 Artsy Ornaments for Christmas but evolved a little, from using book paper to using fabric... and from something small to something much bigger
I was up to my elbows in paper, paint and glue making the backgrounds and then decided to cut green fabric into thin little strips, tie knots an inch apart and then cut them. The little knots of fabric with small tails at each end were glued to the tree shape I had glued onto my completed background - so cute!
Burlap for the trunk, some doodles etc. and they were done.
Into a box with a small bottle of beautiful sparkling white wine, some home-made cookies and rum sauce and they were ready for the party!
Not having had a haircut in five months, I was another story....
