We Should Consider a Tree for Next Year's Festival of Trees

Merry Christmas, everyone!
  Hopefully you have all your Christmas stitching done so you don't have to spend Christmas Eve at your machine.

We went to the Empress Hotel in Victoria today to view the trees and I think this one will interest all of you.  I'm throwing it out here that maybe we should do this for the Family Place Festival of Trees next year.  I know our quilted items haven't brought in what they should, and I think one of these would without too much work on anyone's part.  The trick would be for someone to buy a beautiful pre-lit tree when they go on sale right after this Christmas.

Barb Hart, does this one look familiar to you.

The garland is so cute and easy.
And the topper is a giant pincushion.
