Tree Of Christmas Cheer!

 You may remember me stitching this a little while ago.
 It is now finished. The pattern is 
'Tree of Christmas Cheer" by Anni Downs.
I had a bit of a hiccup putting this together. 
The pattern called for heavy weight interfacing. Either I bought too heavy or the wrong thing all together but it was so stiff that I couldn't turn the tree through. 
Before I threw it in the bin, I tried pulling all the stabiliser 
off and hoped it wouldn't wreck the fabric. It worked with just a little fraying on the edges! I just re-sewed the seams as some of them pulled a little. I'd forgotten to do the French knots. That's why there is still a bit of stabiliser. I couldn't be bother re-doing the knots!
 I'm very pleased with my tree. They are definitely 
not my normal Christmas colours.

You should be very pleased with your tree indeed. It looks gorgeous. I wonder what the stuff was that you used. Maybe you could email Anni? I know she wouldn't mind.
