LTRTCWSA - Folk Art Christmas Tree -

Another episode of -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))


So I decided to trace and cut the applique pieces -

On the Folk Art Christmas Tree - here -
Folk Art Christmas - by Cindy Taylor Oates - (c) Taylor Made Designs -

I remembered to turn the pattern over -

So that I could trace the Bird -


But I forgot to put the fusible web on TOP of the pattern -

And traced the Bird on the BACK of the PATTERN -

Instead of onto the fusible web - ;))

You can see the web there peeking out from UNDER the pattern - ;))

I never cease to amaze myself -

How do I screw up? -

Let me count the ways - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

This post was written and scheduled to go "live" today - before I learned that Linda - my bloggy buddy/friend and "Racing" partner had to have surgery recently and will be sidelined for awhile. I have decided to post my progress as scheduled - and because she's run into this little roadblock - We have declared a TIE in our First Annual Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed. - ;))


  1. HAHAHA Very very familiar with that technique. haha

  2. That tree is going to do you in yet! Just looking at it, it would seem it is fairly straight forward but looks are deceptive? Is it not symmetrical?

    1. Yes - it is symmetrical EXCEPT for the Bird at the top and the Hand at the bottom. I was trying to remember to REVERSE the Bird so that it would face the same direction as on the pattern. I'm not going to reverse the Hand - I want that to be a LEFT-Hand - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
