Four Seasons Table Cover Update.....Here Comes the Sun!



Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today.--Steve Maraboli



I now have all the trees in the Four Seasons Table Cover appliqued down with a blanket stitch and got the Sun made..............

 This is a closeup of the house between the two trees of winter.  I put a Christmas tree in the window and, Hey! Who is that coming down the chimney???

You might have also noticed the sun is now sewed down.  I found a beautiful embroidery pattern to use for the middle of the sun and then just used a decorative stitch for the rays.......

  I also added some more embroidery to the sky.......the little bear in the Spring House is now flying a kite.......

And there are some ducks flying south for the winter........


I still want to add some rain clouds somewhere....and some more embellishment around the houses......some spring flowers, maybe a bee hive and I think some fireworks in the Summer sky for 4th of July...........and then it will be ready to finish!

I have, once again, committed myself to another presentation at my local Imaging society.  This one is due on March 9 so, at some point I am going to have to ban myself from the sewing room and buckle down to doing some research............I still have a swap item to make but, hey......ya'll know how good I am with deadlines......right??  LOL............

Ok, I'd better get to bed now..........lots to do tomorrow before its back to the grind............so I will just say, Ta-Ta for now.................

Gosh, this tablecloth has given you so many chances to show your creativity. It's looking great! And yes, I know how good you are working on a deadline. You're probably almost finished with your presentation planning.
