A Finish and A WIP

Below is my progress on Rene of ILCS our grand Hardagner original design of a Christmas Tree

And dut dut da daaaa we have a stitched finish!!!! I found a no sew cube tutorial by Hannah. I need to gather my supplies...I may have to go buy a backing material..not sure I have suitable in my stash. Hopefully a cube will be posted soon and even look like a cube since it is my first attempt.
