It's looking great Golo! You are really doing a nice job with that pattern. How are you doing your applique?

CC, I did full stars... much easier that way than cutting little pieces.. I thought it would be heavy, but it wasn't.. Applique is fuseable webbing and ironed on... some pieces are spray. I bought something new in a can called 606.. it an adheisive so thought I would give it a try.. works good so far... I will outline everything in silver or gold metalic thread... maybe I can work on some of that today...

Golo and CChris, This looks just fabulous. One of the best Christmas wallhangings I have seen. You are both doing a wonderful job.

I've never tried fusible. It seems daunting. Especially if there are a lot of layers. Are you cutting anything out from behind before fusing a new layer on? I have only done a little snippet class and that got pretty thick. Did you use a thin fusible?

I use a very light weight fuseable... I don't cut out behind but you certainly can...

I'll looks for the 606, that might be interesting to play with. I think I will do my star like yours i think it would be much easier. I'm using steam a seam 2 light. I started out using the heavy stuff and its really hard to sew in, thats why santa is not heavily embelllished.
Cottonpicker. I've not done much fusable at all. I'm just learning as I go along. This is a small project and I figure it will be ok however I play with it. Important note...don't use spray starch and make sure you prewash your fabrics ohterwise the fusable won't stick.

Oh Golo this is beautiful, I love it, now I want to run into my sewing room and do one, no do houswork and vege gardening! The star, did you cut full stars and layer them? Seems a great idea, could always cut the centre out of the ones underneath so not as thick. Love your fabric choices - I love it

Golo, that is looking good!!! Love the colors you used. Do you have any trouble with the metalic threads?? I've not used them, fought them so much with counted cross stitch, I just hate to mess with it, I do however have the metalic needles for my machine. lovehearts Norma

I am looking forward to this months pattern... only five more days. I don't have that much trouble with the thread... I use a special metalic needle on the sewing machine... Gimp, you certainly could cut away, but it wasn't necessary... it is a pretty star pattern...

I have not touched this since last month. Have not done the star and whatever else came with the star...I seemed to have fallen behind on everything.
Next months will be out on this coming Monday!!

Golo....My eyes are giving me fits tonight...I'm working on the star and cant figure out the order on those last few top ones...according to the pattern there is no center square numberd....I guss I'm just going to do the top ones as triangles on top of a square, I can't really see how you did yours. I think I'll give these old eyes a rest tonight and go at it tomorrow.
Krafty....I was buzzing along with my metalics tonight but started to mess up when my bobbin got down too about 1/4 full. The "sewers aid" really has helped . I bought it at Joanns. Keeping that spool vertical has helped too.

CC, I laid my fusible over the star pattern and did the back one first.... then the 2nd star, 3rd star and the tiny little one in the center... you will have to draw some lines on your own... good luck... it really is easy... there are 4 little triangle to add to the top....
