Oh Christmas Tree

I have SO enjoyed working on this all week.  In fact I am very tempted to keep it out and work on it next week too...but that would be cheating!!  However, I now have 2 designs, possibly 3, that could be completed so I have decided that at the end of every quarter, I will have a week of working on PHD's and see if I can get them finished.  Anyway, here is the before and after...



It looks much better in real life.  The fabric is Crafty Kitten 'Oatmeal' and is ever so pretty.  The thread is DMC 4045 and is lovely to work with.

The random generator has chosen #62 this week which is Sunflower Fairy. Another one that I probably wouldn't have chosen to work on but find myself looking forward to.

I love this tree, I would want to carry on too!
Is Sunflower Fairy the Nora Corbett design? I have her somewhere but have never started her.

What a good girl you are to keep to your rotation! The tree looks lovely and each time I look at it I see another little motif. I hope you return to this one soon. :)
