What are you most proud of? Making something to compliment my Scherenschnitte ornaments when I couldn't find anything...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a small tree skirt - start with something small! I used two different sizes of prairie points and layered the smaller ones centered over the larger ones. This technique makes great straight bands as well, and I figured that if I put one on the side front opening of a jacket, I could put buttonholes in the center openings of some prairie points! Very formal.

Wow, that is beautiful! It really looks difficult. I don't think I have ever seen anything like that.

Thanks! My very favorite kind of project is something that looks difficult - but it is just a trick. I don't have time or the memory cells any longer to do "difficult"! And it was fun, too!

I have just looked at your tree, oh my goodness it is incredible, I love it, and would prefer this christmas tree to any other.

wow, thanks! it is our favorite tree. Try Scherenschnitte, even the simple ones are gorgeous. Google it! You cut 2 papers together and stitch down the center, leaving thread for a loop.

Very Nice it is a new concept to making a tree. I love it.

I have seen this in person and it is FABULOUS. I hope to make one for my Scherenschnitte Tree too!
