I have been struggling to keep up with the PFOS monthly Fir Tree Club. The canvas comes with a stitch guide. Sometimes I follow it and sometimes I don't. The background gave me the most trouble. I don't care for white backgrounds. When I looked at all the different colored trees, I realized why PFOS chose white. I wanted to make my trees into ornaments which made basket weave the stitch of choice. The first five trees are on their way to the finisher. It's back to work on my Big Horn Sheep canvas.
