Serious work has begun on the Advent UFO
As well it should, since we are already at December 12 - the Advent is HALF OVER ALREADY!!!
So here's a selection of the Tree Decorations I've completed so far:
And the Tree itself is almost complete...
Still need to number those pockets along the bottom, and add the buttons so that the decorations can be hung. There's also a heap of embellishing which I'd love to do, but I think I'll be waiting until next year for that.
Oh... and I need to scrounge around for another STICK in the garden for the casing along the bottom.
Master Twelve has already informed me that the 'stick' idea is an EPIC FAIL - but I love the character it lends the calendar...
When it came to the pockets, there wasn't really enough felt left - and no instructions either!
I was going to add each pocket separately, using random felts... but there wasn't enough space on the backing to do that. So I made some scrappy strip pockets instead.
