I loved doing this Christmas Tree...it is done totally in the hoop and finishes at about 18x20 inches or so...the concept is so amazing to me...each piece is stitched and added as you go...starts at the bottom and finished with the star on the top...I have done this in white satin and gold thread...I thought about adding some crystals...but I really think it is so elegant just the way it is...so I am on the fence with the crystals...

If you look down further she gives the site Embroidery Affair and the design is still available. Also one at Kreative Kiwi with a similar style.

I do not think it needs crystals. You have so much dimension with the stitching on ea. layer. It stands alone in it's beauty/Lillian

It is a download purchase at Embroidery Affair...no waiting...P.J.'s ITH tree...instant download after payment...

by killiecrankie 14 Dec 2014

Its beautiful.It reminds me of a smaller tree that Katulle posted a few years ago.I checked the link out but the design is a bit to dear for me especially with our weak Aussie dollar & conversion fees adds on about 20%extra to the price.Hopefully it might come on sale during the next year .

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 07 Dec 2014

Thank you for your kind comments..gosh, I really don't know...I use 5,000mm spools...I don't think it really took that much though...I just looked at the instructions and they don't really say...I will say that if you had one 1100mm spool it would be plenty...top and bobbin thread are the same gold...

1961nancy by 1961nancy 08 Dec 2014

Thanks for the reminder on putting in the bobbin.
