3 Days Left Until Christmas!

When the felt challenge was proposed, I decided I would just design my own felt and sequin project! Sara's oldest daughter is obsessed by trains. That's what inspired me to make what I call the Candy Cane Junction tree skirt.
|Like every train, the caboose brings up the rear|
This project took a couple weeks to finish. I completed one train car per evening, and it took a couple of evenings to complete the depot and trees. Once all the pieces were made, it one took two nights to sew everything to the tree skirt. This includes frequent and lengthy interruptions from my beagle Copper, who would have preferred to be on my lap in place of the sewing.

I recently wrote about the tree skirt I made for my friend Joe. You can find that post here. Here's another photo of the tree skirt under Joe's awesome EverGleam Christmas tree.

Finally, my friend Sue sent me a photo of her childhood stocking (which is still her stocking now). Her grandma Hazel made it for her in 1966. How cute is that?
