They are beautiful, aren't they? I looked through mine again today. I found "Boss Lady's" name tag Very Happy Marilee's spotted red fabric, Memaw's green, some cool browns on the trunks that I would like to have. They are so nice. And it was cool to see Spain, Germany, and Tasmania on labels. I am going to enjoy putting this together after Christmas. Will make Christmas last longer.

Yay! So now we're waiting to hear from shemoos, bizkitea & kany, right?

Today was my last day at work until the Saturday after Thanksgiving :bday9:


Tomorrow I've got a doctor's appointment and then there are the two concerts this weekend... BUT I'm pretty sure that I will be able take a little bit of time to scribble up a couple of alternate setting ideas (I haz them, you know).

That may be when I get some time to work on mine too TMM. Things may slow down by then. I do need to get little Ella's doll clothes done at some point though.

I like them all.
I like putting some as cornerstones in the border. Would be a good place for any that are a little different in size. It wouldn't even be noticable if they are off a tad.
But I really want one as a pillow. Guess I could make one more block?

Sure am glad I don't have to decide right now. I am just going to print these lovely ideas and put them with the blocks.

Thanks Tracy. hug08

Perhaps writing the maker and place of origin on the trees would work, or on the bottom corner of the sashing strips?

kany so glad you got yours, they are so much fun, when mine arrived my daughter looked at her globe to see where spain was, she got me to look up some photos of spain so she could see what your country is like, she was very interested. She did the same with Germany

Hoping Kany will join us in other swaps, hmmmm what can we swap next? Should have a look at our swap ideas thread Swap Ideas thread. Those felt candle mats appealed to me, first thing that comes into my head.

I love my trees, thanks again for arranging this FiberBabble, you rock!!

Madly finishing a throw for a friend for Christmas. I take all my presents for North Texas when I go at Thanksgiving.....leave them at my mom's house and she distributes them for me...not many....two families.

My tree throw will come after Thanksgiving!
