Susan asked for a fancy tree skirt with a vintage look.  With the baby due the end of November I wanted to get it to her before Thanksgiving since they want to get the tree up before the baby arrives.

I did my pattern in PE.  Drew a circle 30 inch radius.  I then tried several different divisions until I came up with 24 panels.  The size that fit well into the hoop for embroidery.

Originally I planned 24 individual designs around the skirt, but got a grip and went for 12 designs with a large snow flake on the other 12 panels.

Total 120 embroidery designs on the skirt.

Humm - I think the actual designs took about 40 hours. I worked on it in sections so by the time the final panel was embroidered, the other panels were ready for the final assembly. I did layout all the finished panels to arrange colors in the different designs.

I did a sample of the panel. The snowflakes and holly border were edited to make them longer.

I guess 50 - 60 hours total. I have a baby monitor in the sewing room so can hear the machine.

That's very lovely. Been absent for a while. Peek in every now and then to see what you are all up to. This has provided reason to speak out!
