My family, not dh, but childern, gks and neices and nephews have complained about our not having a tree for the holidays.
We live on 20 acres of beautiful forested land. We see no need to cut one, when we can look out the window and see hundreds of them.
I do put up decorations and lights. We've also put up artifical trees from huge to just over 12". This year I found a pattern for and appliqued tree wall hanging. I am not much on hand applique, so I adapted it to use steam a seam and machine applique.
Dh likes it and so do I, we'll see when the kids arrive what they think.
I love it. Did you design it or did you have a pattern? I would love to find a place to get the pattern.
I love it too!! Do hope you can share the pattern!
Joyce it is beautiful. Is it hanging on the wall? I am sure they will like your surprise.. I envy you, sounds like a beautiful view you have all year long.
The name on the pattern is Sage Country Christmas Tree #0101. I purchased it in Spokane WA. at a heart like yours Quilt Shoppe.
Their webside is www.aheartlikeyours.com
The company name on the pattern is Sage Country Quilts, it's copyright date is 1998. I don't know if it's still in production but I imagine a little searching on the web will locate one.
Joyce I have the same problem, but this year I put up the tree and it was soooo easy!
If life hands you scraps make quilts
That is so cute. I know you had fun making it.
Joyce, that is an absolutely stunning tree!!!!
Sewnso, I like yours, too. lollll
Absolutely beautiful tree...sewnso, I like yours also
I love it!
Joyce, that is stunning!!
I LOVE it!
Your so clever.
I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says: "Oh NO! She's UP!"
Great tree Joyce !
Joyce, I love your tree! It's nice with all the ornaments added and I'm sure the kids will like it. A good solution to a 'real' Christmas tree!
sewnso... got a good chuckle from your tree!
Joyce, great quilt!
sewenso, too funny... Chris
Love you tree - reminds me I need to bring up my wall hanging for the wall and Santa for the front door. That's the extent of my "decorating" this year
Love your tree
You can order the pattern for this tree from here:
Take time for kindness & for giving. Take time for friends & happy living!
Joyce, that tree is just delightful.
sewnso -- I love that. If anybody asks, you've got a tree, right??
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Joyce, that tree is wonderful! Thanks for sharing - I'll have to look for that pattern.
"Wishing you sunshine and blessings"
How clever! I could easily see that as an Advent tree, too, with a child being allowed to hang one ornament a day until the star went on the top the last day.
Love the air freshener "tree" too! But my cats would probably tear that down just like they would a real tree.
You can also get the pattern here - and the price is a bit better
lol sewnso that is so funny
