...two more...

I just wanted to show you two more spool Christmas trees that I made and sold at the show on Saturday.  It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but the bottom spool (the trunk) has black thread on it.

I'm rather fond of Christmas in plaid.  

I must say I'm surprised at how many spools are different heights.  I have a lot of spools, like seriously a couple boxes of them and I had to sort and sort to find enough of the same height for each tree.  For each of these I tore fabric strips and glued them on the spools.  The one peeking out from behind was done with each spool a different pattern of red.  Why not green?  I don't know.  I just saw my red scraps and really wanted it to be red.  So, red it was.

I hope you all are having a great week and enjoying the preparation for the upcoming Holidays!
