FNSI and Finish it up Friday

 
 Last night I joined in with Friday Night Sew In and this morning I am linking up with Finish it up Friday.
 
I know...it's been a while since my last post.
 
Last night I finished a project that has been in the pile of WIPs for about...oh... four years now. I finally finished my 'Oh Christmas Tree' quilt last night. The background looks very 'limey' in the photo, but you will get the idea.
The tree is raw edge appliqued. I completed the applique last week at a retreat and finished the beading last night.


 
You can just see the little silver seed beads on the background.

 
It's hard to see in the big picture, but there is a little white peeper around the edge.
 
 
 
Here's shot of the back so you see that I did actually stitch it and not just iron it on.

 
Will fill you in on the retreat in my next post.
Don't forget to pop over and look at other FNSI and FIUF participants have been stitching.
