Monday Morning Star Count - Colorful Border

I have pieced the background and made a colorful border. Not the typical Christmas colors, but this is what I like.  I cut five inch strips, then cut the strips into random widths.  I put all the pieces in a basket and sewed them together in the order that I pulled them out.  

I loosely pinned the tree to the background, but I think it will be lower when I stitch it.  

I am pleased with how this is coming along. When I do things like this, I don't plan or draw things out.  It develops at I go and I like it that way. 

Look what the Easter Bunny sent me! Arigatou Okii Usagi!


  1. Great border for the neutral background and the tree.
    Yes, 'beary' sweet!

  3. It looks like you are having a lot of fun this spring with hanami parties and all your lovely crafting!!! I love that the Christmas hanging isn't perfect and just put together gives it a unique character :)

    Have a great week!!

  4. I like your fun colors!! It' a great wall hanging. The Easter Bunny was nice to you. I used to love to devour Junior Mints when I worked. Unfortunately they made a great tasting, but poor health choice for a 3:00 energy pick up.
