Tree of Christmas Cheer for Slow Stitching Sunday

Many years ago I was lucky enough to go to Toowoomba with a friend to meet up with another friend. We spent the weekend sewing together and joining in on a great weekend called. GIRLS DAY OUT. There were a few designers there and we were lucky enough to get some soon to be released patterns. Over the weekend we really didn't get much stitching done but we did have a great catch up time.
There were the designers Lynette Anderson, Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched and Natalie Bird. We were given the usual goody bags filled with kits, patterns, fabrics and threads.
This Tree of Christmas Cheer was by Anni Downs.
So I dragged it out again and got stuck into it...
Where I started today

I have completed the stitching and then worked on the appliqué. It is very cute... All pressed.
