Redwork Tree Skirt- Part 4: Finish-Along is complete

Well, I did it! I finished all of the redwork for the custom tree skirt. The only hang up now, is that my mother (& my partner in crime when it comes to putting these pieces into quilts & things) is laid up with a broken ankle. But my part is complete. & done in time to have successfully completed the UFO finish-along!

Panel no. 7 is traced out & tools are gathered

I have to say, that I really dig redwork with a touch of turquoise. It came out wicked cool as snowflakes. Can't wait to see the whole tree skirt together & underneath Heather's tree next Christmas!

Oh! & a huge "Thank you" to Vicki of the GYB party & all my new followers!

  2. Hello I'm one of your new followers from GYB. Oh my Giddy Aunt your poor mother and her broken ankle, that sounds like a terrible fall. I know all about your snow as my daughter is studying in NY. I really hope that your partner in crime can manage some embroidery soon.

    1. The turquoise is supposed to help tie the redwork in with the other fabrics to be used. I can't wait to see it all together.
