Rainbow Christmas Tree 2008

 

 

 

 


I couldn't wait until tomorrow. I wish there was some way I could get pictures from every angle. I also wish I could make it look as amazing in pictures as it does in my den. No brag. Just fact!

By the way, there are 71 snowflakes on this tree, 61 of them tatted by me. Just in case you were wondering.

Oh, the reason there is no tree skirt can be explained by the little boy who eats apples by himself!

Beautiful tree. Every minute you spent in tattting the snowflake ornments was worth it. Looks great. Madeline

Tattycat said...

Thank you Tattrldy. I am so glad you love it!
Thanks Madeline. You have watched these snowflakes develop from the first. I guess that gives you the best perspective on the process and how many hours have been spent.

Thank you Tatting Chic. I was hoping you would click on the pictures and see your lovely snowflakes. You really helped finish off the tree!
Thank you Shirley and thanks for the coupon link!
Thanks Clyde. Some people may not value tatting and other textile arts, but the ones who are important do! I am so glad that it delights your senses. Thank you for your contributions!

It's Beautiful Laura. It's been my observation through the years that a Christmas tree never ever looks as good in a photo as real life. You just can't capture it on a camera. Showing it with the lights added a dash of sparkle though!

Tattycat said...

You are right Gina. It is impossible to capture. I made pictures with and without lights to see which would work best. Thanks!

Bonnie said...

WOW! Laura, your tree is BeAuTiFuL! I love it. I'm so jealous.

Tattycat said...

Thank you Bonnie. Your enthusiasm is contagious!!! Maybe you could start a snowstorm at your house.....

You had a beautiful tree. I want to have one next year similar to this but mine will have to be green. I know the tatting won't show up as well but I'll know they are there.

I'm gonna tat that little angel then try some snowflakes. Hugs, Linda
