    JuneBillie - I put up a wrought iron tree. I found it on one of my trips to PA for fabric. It is shaped like a cone (tree) with rings every foot or so. There is an iron star at the top. DH got me zip ties and I zip tied clear lights to its "ribs". The light string is dark brown so it blends in. Right now there is also a string of autumn lights on it, that have leaves, squash and corn. Found them at JoAnn's in the summer. I have Shammrock lights, easter egg lights, flip flop lights and heart lights. I use just the clear ones that are on it at Christmas. And I'm always looking for different lights after the holidays. I'll try and take a picture and post it so you can see.
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    My tress were 3" to 3-1/2" high. My office was only about 16 x 16.
    my sewing room was about 25' sq.with a hugh 10' sq table in the middle to lay out things.

    Those are the ones where you take a styrofoam (smooth kind) ball and you draw segments, then cut on your line, then shove the fabric in. As you can see in that pic one of the segments got a little too much glue. You don't have to use glue but I painted a little on, it helped keep the fabric from just sliding from side to side as I shoved. But that was the one I mentioned where I said I was shoving just to the side of my line and made a groove that didn't belong so then I hotglued the trim over the segment joints. They weren't even remotely equally segmented out cause I suck at that. I found youtube videos for those. You can just search youtube for fabric ornaments and look in the list for the ball ones that dont' look like the folded stars. Though you can find the folded star ones on there as well. they're so easy.

    You can have a small christmas tree up year round about 3ft tall and decorate with pink and red hearts for valentines
    day,and St .Patricks day with coins,shamrocks, green hats,for Easter with easter eggs,flowers,small baskets,4th of July flags,stars,Haloween pumpkins, fall leaves, etc. The craft stores also carry small foam shapes in plastic tubs that have a sticky side you can punch a hole at the top of the foam shapes and hang from the trees with ornament hooks.
    Note: Dont stick the foam shapes to glass.Or you will spend a lot of time removing them.Lesson learned!!

    Thanks, I would love to see a pic if you take one. Your tree sounds interesting, and has given me ideas to keep an eye out for when I am in different places.

    For anyone who would like to send a card or an RAK to Krystyna I am going to post the address... Melissa asked that you put RAK on the outside of the envelope along with your name and board name... The mail will go to her house..
    She really has no place to store things right now so thinking that maybe once she gets settled we could all do her a FQ shower... Some people may have other ideas... We all need to pray that thinkgs get better and Thank God they all made it through all this....
    Would love to see everyone send a card note whatever so she knows we are all praying and care...

    Please send me a PM if you want the address.


    God Bless

    Thank you to terriquilt1 and pat625 for the ornaments I received.

    The first is a picture (finally) of the ornaments I received from Pat. Aren't they cute?

    The second is from Terri and in addition to the great gingerbread ornament, I received a fat quarter and candy (yum).

    I loved them and having them hanging from the mantel so I don't forget to put them on the tree. The dove will go straight to the top. I knew I would get it sooner or later with everyone posting they mailed theirs. I love the embroidery one too. At least you had a good laugh.

    I see more beautiful ornament. This sure was a fun swap.
