I think I've decided not to bother putting the stars on the tops of all the trees because this is what the wonkiest of the tree tops looks like after I quilted it with gold thread.
I don't think it looks too bad. And anyway, it's a wallhanging. It's not being entered into a competition or anything like that so I'm thinking it'll do fine the way it is. If I decide at Christmastime that I just have to hide the tree tops I can sew the stars on then.
Here's the back:
I love the tracks of the quilting but, OMG, that gold thread is a pain the bum to sew with. This is what parts of the back look like.
It's a good thing that back will be against the wall! Anyway, it's done and it'll now get laid away until December.
In other exciting news, I sent for this pattern a few weeks ago and, after a slight mix up, it came yesterday. I love these 'phants! Can't wait to have a go at making them.
What was the mix up? Well, I was sent this pattern instead of the 'phants.
I e-mailed to ask them what we could do about this and Isaac e-mailed me back telling me to keep the turtle pattern as it was his mistake and he would send me the 'phants right away. How's that for customer service? So hats off to Isaac at the Heather Bailey Online Store. What a man! :o)
