Remember that 1970's model groom that fizzled out in the 80's and had to be traded in?
Well, I used the veil from the wedding dress for this angel's wings (and about a dozen more). Yup, I got way more mileage out of that dress than I did the groom.
I have a whole box of pink/white ornaments. I made them all and have always loved them. I have not used them in a while. I keep coming across boxes of old items and I want to use them all.
I guess I will put the big tree up tomorrow and I may use these angels on it. Or I will do a Santa tree and use all my Hallmark Santa ornaments that I spent tons of money for and have not used in years. Or maybe the teddy bear ornaments.....I used to be such a Christmas junkie! *grin*
I still have boxes of stuff in the basement. I could do at least four more big trees and not run out of ornaments.
I think DH took today off work, so maybe I can coax him to put the big tree together and load it with white lights. Then it will be all set for me when the urge moves me to decorate it.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
