PLANS INTERRUPTED!

Friday I cut out this tree by Cherry Blossom. I loved Jeanette's (Inchworm Fabrics) green tree so much that I just had to do me one.

 Don't ya just love it? (just a reminder that Inchworm Fabrics will do the cut outs for you with steam a seam in colors of your choice).

 A little birdie told me that she will be getting in some awesome Christmas fabrics (more choices).

and..... I prepped this round tree topper and started working on it will all of the good intentions in the world to finish it today (Saturday).
The old saying "Stuff Happens"....

well it did and so there it sits on my machine.

 My sweet husband took me early this morning to Hancocks and Hobby Lobby in search of more Christmas fabrics.... He knew I needed some fabric therapy for some bad news I had gotten. So...who am I to refuse him. Did it work???? Kinda!

Way cute Christmas tree in the Greens. I have had several quilters recently asking for complete kits, ideally in the red. I routed them to Inchworm to see if they could get a kit with a red/white version. Still, I love the green version.

Sorry to hear you got some bad news. But fabric therapy (and sewing) can help.
Love your Christmas stitchery.

Love the your new round topper. Hopefully you will be able to get it finished tomorrow. Retail therapy with Hubby is a good thing. Hope it helped some.

Love your tree topper Barb. I hope the news wasn't too bad, sending you hugs. My husband buys me flowers or comes home with my favorite Blizzard when I am upset or sad. It is nice to have such thoughtful husbands. Hope your trip cheered you up and you got some lovely fabric. Blessings Sandra

I love the tree in green, Barb. I was thinking of blue too.

I hope the news wasn't too awful. Take care.

You are in my thoughts and prayers, my friend. And I hope that the fabric shopping therapy and some sewing therapy will help to make things go better for the short term. Long term, I hope that our Father will work things out for you. Hugs!
