On Labor Day I took my 50% off Michael's coupon and bought myself a light box. Half off was a really good deal, especially since I'd wanted it for a while.
I have several projects that I needed it for. I used to have a glass top kitchen table and used a lamp under it for projects that required a light box. That's how I made Sierra's redwork crib quilt shown here in a post.
So, I decided to join my friend Teresa at A Quilt and a Prayer and Kathy of Kathy's Quilts and others for Slow Sunday Stitching. I've had a project on my radar for a while now. I ordered the pattern months ago. It is this cute pillow by Crabapple Hill Studio called "Trim the Tree". I love anything with snow people. Don't you?
The pattern is NOT a transfer. You have to trace it onto your fabric. This morning I traced it onto this white on white snowflake fabric. Not the easiest to work with, I must say. I am using the red Cosmo thread for the embroidery. I've never used it before and it's very expensive. The star is filled in with Cosmo sparkle floss. The balls on the tree are cut from red pompom fringe and sewn on.
Now, I'm ready for the Slow Sunday Stitching!
