Oh Little....Stonehenge Tree!

This is what it will look like on December 1st...see the
... this is what it will look like on December 25th to welcome Maria and James home!!:) Blocks for the ornaments came from the Advent Calendar block Swap . I just made numbers 9, 21 and 25. Right now they are in order starting from the bottom...but I think I'll just put them up randomly.
I used four different Stonehenge "Celebration" cut into 5" squares and the leftovers for the binding and quilted it to sort of look like branches. On the back there are two little pockets at the bottom to slide a dowel in to keep the tree spread out while it hangs on our door.

Added a Merry Christmas twill tape for a hook...

...and a wee Longaberger basket to hold the order!

Slate has given it his kitty approval.

  6. Oh My! I am a sucker for advent calendars and tried to make one once that grew out of control and took up the front door! this is the dearest one I have ever seen!
