Many many, lol. I think I worked on it a little each week for a couple of months. I'm too busy with family life, etc to work on projects everyday. Usually I don't get 1-2 days a week to sew if that so it is hard to tally up the hours. I can tell you that I had to make two 12 x 17 inch confetti/tulle hunks and each one took 2 hours or so. So we're at 4 hours just for the tree foliage. I did blog about it on my blog - cathygeier.blogspot.com Thanks for the compliments!
