Spectacular Finishing on Eye Candy Fall Tree

What a wonderful surprise the UPS man brought me today. I love the beautiful, magnificent, spectacular, stupendous and wonderful finishing that Ruth Schmuff did on Ada Haydon's Fall Tree. I knew that I would be happy with the finishing Ruth did for this tree but I never expected to be blown away. The base is just perfect with some bling. The ribbon is perfect with the bat and bling. The pink gusseted sides with the black velvet ribbon and bling are perfect and the fabric for the back is perfect. Yes, the finishing of the tree is just PERFECT!!! Can you tell that I really like the finishing. I am now really looking forward to doing the Winter tree and having it finished the same way. I can see all four trees on a shelf in my sewing room. I was unsure about not doing the single tree but now that I see how perfect it is finished I am glad that I did just the single tree.

Thank You Ruth for another spectacular job.

I love your tree and I love your apples! Question on your apples....did you find it difficult to understand the stitch guide directions for the beading around the bows and using the wire?

Hi Diane.
Look at Amy's e-newsletter (March 2011, page 7) to see some behind the scenes of the beading around the bows and using the wire. Hope this helps. Robin

Hi Diane,
Robin is right check out Amy's March Newsletter. It tells you exactly how to apply the beads. I also didma few tacking stitches to hold them in place.
