Pillow talk, Tall Trees

This is where the idea for the Pink Pine Christmas cards was born. I have been playing with different tree shapes, and this is one of my favorites. Super simple trees made from green scraps, variegated thread and a repurposed table cloth in 4 shades of green.
I was planning to make more of them for Christmas presents, but that did not happen. Nope. Maybe I’ll revisit next year, which is a thought I often have but rarely follow up on – too many ideas and not enough time or energy (I cannot really blame it on fabric shortage, can I). I did not get around to making the thrifty pillows from this post or finish Village No 2 either, but as far as I understand, time will still exist on the other side of Christmas Eve and while I’m waiting, I’ll be knitting hats. Probably.

  1. Aren't there always at least 100 more things on the list than we can ever accomplish. Husband and I are leaving our list to my son to finish! We always joke about that...nice contrast on this pillow, really shows up those trees. Simple for you maybe, not so for me. xox Corrine
