this was very very therapeutic. It took 2 trips to spotlight and 280 pins to complete.
In the beginning I just started with the cone, even covering all of it I wasn't happy so I pulled them all out and covered it with some dark green felt before I set off again.
I have 2 other sized cones, some really little ones about 8cm tall and another about 12cm tall and I want to do them in pearl buttons with gold pins, I think I am going to have to do another pin run. Now all the buttons are stuck on it is very heavy, I just have to think where it will fit with my Christmas decorations now.
I don't usually decorate until the week before Christmas, mainly because it is so dusty here and we have a big tree decorating evening once Penny (Michael's mum) arrives. I have 4 tubs of decorations stashed away here and there. I think it is my second favourite day because it means in just a few days time Santa will be here.
