I am very happy to say that I have made some progress on Block #6 of my tree skirt.
I have added the greens and the button to the bottom left corner and used the threaded chain stitch that was one of the TAST stitches from a few weeks ago. I threaded it with a bulky thread and liked the way it came out. I might try this again sometime.
The button in the left corner is a lovely button made by Jan Trivanovich from Reynoldsburg, OH. It is a white and gold beaded button. This was part of the swap we had at Maureen Greeson's Adventure in Crazy Quilting last year. I thought those greens showed the button off a bit. I also used some green memory thread in with the greens.
I then added some bells on this block. I LOVE those little colored bells. They have a little loop at the top that you sew on and it makes them really jingle nicely. I love that. I added some little gold bells in the right corner.
I am having trouble with the placement of the clackers for the bells in the bottom middle. I have tried adding bells there but now realize that would not be another bell but something to strike the bell. I will try beads there instead. This will probably be the last thing I do on this block for now.
I will now be working on one of the other blocks of the tree skirt. Thank you for having a look!
