O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

My friend and I met for coffee yesterday and she suggested popping into a fabric shop beforehand. "I just need a bit of black cotton" she said. Turns out it's not possible to just go in there for a bit of black cotton. She bought 3 different fabrics (including the black thank goodness) and I bought this lovely stripey one. And there was me thinking I didn't need any fabric... Roll Eyes





It's amazing what a twig, some fabric and a spool can turn into. And some tape measure of course... Cheesy

You are awesome.  The end Cheesy

Well, not the end, I love the '25' tape, and the fringy bottom to your tree, I have the same problem with fabric stores, you've totally inspired me, and I'm going to make some tree decorations now!

Thank you so much! The 25 was such a happy fluke, it was literally the next part I was cutting up from the tape measure. It was meant to be!

I definitely think she's a bad influence on me, I should have waited outside Cheesy
