Work in progress Update

Hello stitching friends, here is a short update with a pic of my progress to date on Major Tree by AAN. So far, so good. I do have a counting error towards the bottom of the tree, can't find it, but I know its there. This means continuing to work up and then right and then down, so I can accommodate one less row towards the bottom. I'm an expert in accommodating errors, you see!

Well, its March and I hope to finish this by the end of the month. It would be cool indeed to finish a project every month or so! I will be starting that lovely little pin cushion on the cover of JCS magazine. I have the supplies except for the matching fabric for the bottom...soon, soon.

Anyway, hope everyone is doing well and for those of you still in the thrall of winter, hang in there, Spring will be here soon.

Keep safe,
Hugs, Christina


  1. Hi, I write from Italy. I like very much this tree. I stitched the "Happy tree" from Alessandra Adelaide.
    I'm no expert so do not know if my request is inappropriate. Can we exchange the pattern of these two trees? Please, let me know if it is possible.

    1. Hello Furgamoma, I am sorry but I don't own this chart any more. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. If you have a blog, let me know about it! Hugs from Miami, Florida!
