What a lovely project!
But I'm not going to lie, I'm glad it's over!
I had no idea how stressed out I was getting about it. I put it in the mail around noon today for Saturday Air Mail Delivery. They have a week until the wedding but this guarantees if there are any problems mounting it to the poles it will be discovered FAR before the ceremony.
I made the ties from strips of the silk dupioni.
Then I stitched them into the corners. Three long strips per corner. I doubled one so that it made a little loop. Since maybe we'll need zip ties or something at the top I wanted to leave the option for a different style of attachment.
Sewed up the back of the corners.
Some special embroidery on the tree! Secret!
I think I did like fifty hours on this baby. I took notes so I should count.

Other things I've been working on include two upcoming sock monkey workshops for parents and little ones! I will post about that soon. First workshop is already sold out! Second one has a few slots, June 16th, 6-7:30pm in Larchmont, NY.
