Kälte und Regen trotzend, hatten wir einen Riesenspaß dabei, "unseren" Baum neu anzuziehen.
It was wonderful, the yearly meeting of the "yarn tree women"!
In spite of rain and cold, we had a lot of fun giving "our" tree a brand new dress.
After 3 years, the old dress looked quite weather-worn and ugly - time for a new dress!
Bänder, Würfel, bestrickte und behäkelte Flaschen, und nicht zuletzt eine Baum-Bauch-Binde :)!
Dank einer Menge gestifteter Maschenproben und eifriger Hände kam eine Menge zusammen.
Ribbons, cubes, bottles in knitted and crocheted wraps, and last not least a large tree-belly band :)!
Thanks to the lot of gifted swatches and a lot of eager hand, that made quite a lot of decorations.
Then the tree was "undressed".
Is this normal trash or does it belong into the container for used clothes :)?
The tree in its birthday suit :)
Then we were busily climbing, sewing, trying - until the pouring rain stopped us.
On Sunday we went on - such a little bit of rain can't stop us!
This is the finished tree - I am sure it will be vivid and bright in good weather, matching the beautiful new seat!
