Holiday Show Theme is Trees

In November I participate in the Down East Holiday Show in Greenville NC. This will be my second year participating. Last year I sold off a bunch of stuff as I was on my quest to find my "signature style." Oh... that would be "French Cottage." This year I had my "aha" moment as Oprah would say and have gone back to my love of everything white and cream. I also decided to focus on one particular "theme" instead of trying to get so many things done and failing because I get overwhelmed. So this year's theme will be trees. I have a few projects going on right now, but this piece is finished. It's my original tree designed stitched with Valdani hand-dyed, colorfast floss onto a piece of vintage damask tablecloth. I added the jingle bells on the corner of this pillow to make it a little "sassy." It will be on my site for sale and if it sells before the show, that won't hurt my feelings at all. hee,hee,hee

Love the pillow Shell. Your designs are wonderful. I just sent in an application for a Christmas show that takes place in November at our local high school. I hope I can still get in:)

Best wishes for your November show:)

Lovely pillow Shell,
Very cute design- I am sure you will have a wonderful time at the November sale and bring with you lots of things for it that will sell well.

The jingle bells were a nice touch.
Warmest regards,

Love that tree design and the pillow is beautiful. I like the way you think! It's a great idea to have a theme. That pillow will never make it to the show though!
