I finished the pieced tree today and, I have to say, I *love* it!
I made a silver star out of fabric that I swear has been in my "sparkly fabrics" box for at least 20 years. I'm pretty sure it was left over from a tap costume of Joanna's for a dance concert in 1989!! (Please ignore the yellow thread!!)
I used some Gütermann glitter threads to quilt it. They're not the easiest of threads to sew with but I love the effect they make. (Please ignore the green thread on the tree trunk!!)
